With three sleeps until Christmas, these are the things on my mind:
*Grocery shopping- done!
*The Mr.'s and L's colds- sure wish they could shake them!
*Christmas Eve menu for dinner at the Mr.'s mom's: Pork tenderloin
*Late Christmas Eve services
*Christmas morning menu: Egg casserole, poinsettias
*Stocking stuffers- I just needed a few goodies from the jolly old man- done!
*Winter weather- I'm hopeful (OK, praying!) it won't affect our travel plans for Christmas Day.
*Mom's sugar cookie recipe- chilling, ready to roll out and bake
*Cookie baking and candy making- planning on that tomorrow
*Rum slush making (and tasting)- in the freezer as I type!
*Cleaning the house
*Packing- clothes, games, and goodies
Sounds busy, but it isn't. Nothing is rushed. I can do it on my time--and it is fun "work." I can get most of it done and still have time to sleep in, drink coffee, and enjoy some Christmas music or a Christmas movie.
When the weather outside is frightful, staying home is pretty delightful!
