menu plan monday ~ november 20, 2017

Another busy week. My sister came back this weekend and we got a lot of Christmas prep done. We watched “It’s a Wonderful Life” while we made popcorn and cranberry strings for the living room tree. Ski wanted to check it out. We decorated the candy/cookie tree for the top of the fridge. Genny found […]

We had a busy four-day weekend. My sister was here for the entire time, helping with Christmas prep. A friend came over on Saturday and put in hours of help with decorating Christmas trees and hanging snowflakes. She brought two of her helpful kids along to carry and tote and help as they could for […]

We had a busy weekend of Christmas decorating and baking! Genny is almost done with the chalkboard Christmas tree. I can’t wait to show you the whole thing! The theme is Christmas Mice. I’ll have pictures when it’s done. One of the treats I made is an Open House favorite – Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles. […]

This is a busy time of year for us. We are deep into Christmas prep. Because our annual Open House is the first Sunday in December, we need to have all our Christmas decorating done before that weekend. And, if you know anything about me at all, you know I love Christmas and, therefore, we […]

This past weekend, I and my sisters and our sister-in-law got together for Sisters’ Weekend at our Dad’s house and made 197 dozen Christmas cookies and candies. We had the excellent help of our great-niece who loves to bake and loves to help. Our two brothers take platters of Christmas goodies to their customers each […]

A few days late, but here’s the menu for the week. It was a busy week last week and it’s a busy, busy week this week, too, so the menu reflects that. Easy. Not much cook time involved. We enjoyed a five day visit from our Younger Son this past week. He and the cats […]

After a weekend of Christmas prep, I am ready to tackle the coming week. I have a new custom-order Putz church to finish, I need to continue the work of decluttering and organizing my craft room (a long-term project), and I also need to keep checking items off in my Christmas Notebook which contains my […]

September flew by! Here’s October and I am not ready for it! Love the season, but I just can’t imagine it is already here! We’ve been enjoying the relief from 90° temps the past few days. Much nicer to have the windows open and the air conditioner turned off. Saturday, DH and I went for […]

I spent last week finishing a custom order for a Putz church. It is done, except for a sign on the front of the base, identifying the church. I make signs on printable glitter paper, and am waiting on that to be delivered. It feels good to have this project so close to completion. I […]

Today I have a lot of things on my to-do list, but I have two things I really want to get done. One is the custom order Putz church I am working on. Woody the Gnome thinks the steeple is great. It reminds him of his hat. The other project is to begin embellishing the […]
