Dan asked me why the iron was out on Tuesday evening...my reply...I was ironing neer bottles and here they are...all ironed. They are currently at the framer. They and a beer calendar are my present for Christmas to my step-son David. I think he and his friends will have fun picking out their favourites and guessing which beer is which. Tracy from Ink Cirlces who designed this fun piece thoughtfully provided a two page list of which is where!
I have had a very productive morning. I briefly considered going back to bed when Dan left at 7 am but decided to get busy instead. It snowed overnight and there must have been a fair bit of freezing rain as well, since the trees were coated with gorgeous icy crystals. No doubt the roads were too, so I chose to stay in today and bake.
Yes you read correctly...I baked a whole batch of my Mother's white sugar cookies AND made a batch of chocolate fudge. I am astonished to say that both forays into baking world turned out beautifully. I don't think I have had a batch of fudge turn out so perfectly in many years. Of course the fact that I do this only once a year for Christmas, and due to my broken finger I didn't do any baking at all last year...the whole business is something for me to be proud of!
My brothers, who don't know how to make Mom's cookies, will be pleased at our family Christmas celebration next week and so will the grandkids when we have Christmas there on Christmas Day.
Alas stitching ladies...all this good stuff goes to family and since everything turned out the way it should have, I have packed the recipes back in the recipe box till next year. I can't jinx myself by trying another batch of anything! (Now that sounds more like me doesn't it)
Oh yeah...I vacuumed too! I am sure I'll be back to normal soon though.
