Saturday of stuff to do!
Today, well this weekend, we stayed in town, away from the cabin. I have a bunch to do here at home and plan on gettting it done. So far this Christmas season I have accomplished what I set out to do and not had an ounce of stress involved. Seems like everything has just fallen in place for me. I like that! I baked fruitcakes the other night because the opportunity happened to be just right. Yesterday I went to Daddy's house and put his new electric blanket and mattress under the new sheets and duvet cover. It is just beautiful. (I think I need to paint him a picture to hang in there.) I went there to meet the Sis and return her overnight bag for her trip to the hospital on Monday. That done I was able to open my Saturday, today, to paint and bake and just hang out at home. I long for those kinds of days and they don't happen often. Seems like we are constantly in motion with no time to just hang out at HOME! I know we do at the cabin and I love to go there on weekends but there is nothing like home. I don't have to get dressed today, brush my hair or my teeth (may have to rethink the teeth-blech). I can just roam around the house and do nothing or I can do my laundry, which has piled up, while watching Christmas shows. I love staying at home sometimes. I don't have to venture out the door at all this weekend except to pick up the paper in the driveway. We do have a function/party Sunday but I will be ready to get out by then. Here's to baking and the smells of a happy kitchen. I should have some pic's for the cooking blog tomorrow...keep an eye out. Toodles all and happy weekend, happy baking, happy day!
