Today I spent a large chunk of the day in the kitchen. I woke up this morning going, Holy Cow – (ok, maybe not that, but you never know who reads this stuff) Only 4 more days till Christmas!!!
I would just like to know where the last two months went. Anyhoo.
I made gingerbread cookies, sugar cookies and chocolate chip cookies, totalling about 4 dozen. I then boxed up 4 tins, 3 to head off with FIL to go to visit family this evening. Here’s the gotcha. I forgot to bring them to this evening’s events so FIL could take them with him. Ah, well. That saves me from baking up three more tins tomorrow.
There was a whole plate left this afternoon as I ran out to do some last minute drop off of parcels, but tonight there is only 5 cookies left. 5. Seems I am baking tomorrow anyway.
This evening was Kimber’s Christmas concert at her school. What a hoot. Of course, what kind of parent would I be if I didn’t celebrate my oldest daughter’s first concert without pictures?
On to stitching.
I am sooooooo clooooose to finishing my Joy tree (like 1/2 hour to go close), and I have realized the error of the “y” had more far-reaching repercussions. The one stitch I was off on the right translated to one stitch off on the left which translated to me being 2 stitches off center. Sooo…. rather than frog it all out (yeah, right!) I have decided just to frog the base and move it over to the centre. I have to frog something since it is a noticable difference. Alas. (Did anyone else hear “earwax” there?)
That’s all for today. Till tomorrow, then!
