Whew… What a week. Holidays are so busy! I’m giving you some tidbits of my week and we’ll return to regular blogging (if there is such a thing) next time….
Burned edges due to my not seeing the directions circled in red. The middle was yummy!
Having a cold muddled my brain apparently, so I quit while I was ahead and didn’t make what I really wanted to make:
I can only imagine how it would have turned out. So, maybe I’ll make a middle-of-winter-we-need-some-cookies-and-cocoa cookie tree in February.
Pre-Holiday present giving and present preparation:
The doodlebugs playing with magnifying glasses that Aunt Liz and Uncle Paul gave them.
Making chocolate dipped and sprinkled pretzels for the grandparents and Miss Susan (my mom).
My mom was the perfect recipient for the mismatched mitts. She loved them.
I got a popcorn popper – the kind you make with oil and butter drizzles down on the top!.
So we ate popcorn while playing Uno with Paul’s family:
The popular “toy” that wasn’t a gift:
An infrared temperature guage that Paul picked up on the way to my mother-in-law’s. He bought it to take the temperature of the garage floor in preparation for painting (which didn’t happen – don’t ask). It was used to measure the temp of the Christmas tree, the presents, foreheads and food.
My Aunt Christine’s famous clam puffs. I ate many. Oof.
My nephews in prime position for dessert:
They are so cute.
The desserts at my mother-in-law’s house. Also oof.
Holiday week knitting:
More on these later. (I’m up to my ears in Ravelry, looking for new projects to teach classes on.)
Christmas week reading:
1) Excellent murder mystery. 2) Excellent young adult but good for adults book. It made me cry. 3) Just started.

How was your week?
