Countdown to Christmas
No Christmas cookies in this house yet, but Abby is starting to make preparations. She tested out her new mixer by making bread, so for dinner we had vegetable soup and bread, with a salad of warm, herbed cherry tomatoes.
I read in the paper today that one of the local churches needed donations for their 'Christmas For Everyone' drive so we put together a big bag of stuff and I took it over there. Then I went over to the Kmart and got some milk, and pondered the selection of storage bins. All of my cookbooks are back in their shelves, but they seem to have expanded during their vacation (as do we all), so I no longer have a free shelf for my art supplies. I am going to clean off the cluttered shelf over the computer and put some nice bins up there to house my stuff. Or so the plan goes.
Jellie is coming over tonight, so I am going to put her to work helping to put up the Christmas tree. We are a little late this year because of the late great construction, so it will be good to see a little Christmas in the house.
