We just bought our Christmas tree, let the season begin!
Of course, as I started stringing the lights I remembered that most of ours burned out last year and now I have to go buy more lights before we can progress. Why does this always happen? You get started on a project and you are stopped in the first three steps. I hope this isn't a sign of things to come.
I probably have half my shopping done which it more than I had done at this time last year. I also have made a couple of batches of Christmas goodies. I'm feeling really good about that. I have a long way to go though. We have been making cashew brittle the last few years and it is one of our favs. I also make Russian tea cakes, which a few of us love, but the others can take them or leave them. Which is fine with me, more for the rest of us. I also make these little chocolate peanut butter squares that taste just like Reese's peanut butter cups.
I have attempted to make sugar cookies with icing several times, but they never turn out quite right. I blame the recipe and the altitude, because it couldn't be me.
I'm looking forward to Christmas a little more this year. I don't know why, it's not like we have more money to spend. It's the same as any other year. I think I have just decided to try and enjoy the season and not stress about it. I'm going to make a special point to enjoy the music, the lights, the food and concentrate on the blessings we already have, instead of what is under the tree.
And here's to wishing the same for you my friends.
