Phew! The presents are wrapped and under the tree. Definitely NOT my favourite part of the Christmas prep.
a maniac … uh, very focused, when I wrap.
I shut myself in the bedroom with my laptop and favourite movies (“The Bishop’s Wife”, “Roman Holiday” and “Pride and Prejudice”) and then I do NOT stop until I’m finished. At 1 pm last night, I tied the final bow.
And now for the fun stuff … Christmas cookie baking.
I am trying some recipes from this site, aptly named”Joy of Baking”. (pictures below)
The Christmas music is on – James Taylor at Christmas
The kitchen is rich with spicy Christmas scents
And soon my countertops will be filled with row upon row of baked goodies.
Peanut Butter balls
Oatmeal raisin cookies
We wouldn’t want to run short …
