Friday means Finished Objects. But guess what? Big surprise that I didn’t finish anything this week. I really feel like the week just started and finished. No in between. I’m really trying to remember what I’ve done this weekend and feel like I don’t have anything to share. I haven’t accomplished anything this week. Well, besides a decent amount of work on hubby’s Christmas present. Even if I had finished that, I wouldn’t have been able to share. That’s one of the things I don’t love about gift knitting. I can’t share till they’ve been received. Luckily I don’t have much more to do, gift wise. There are things I do love about the Christmas season. Decorating. Snow. And Baking.
Decorating. I’ve done a bit of that this week at least. Decorated the whole house for Christmas. Now I just need a Christmas tree to make everything complete. Either tomorrow or Sunday we will be going to buy our Christmas tree (no matter what the hubs has to say about it). Then I will really feel like it’s Christmas. Face it- no matter how many Christmas movies you watch, how much Christmas music you listen to, and how many presents you’ve wrapped, it doesn’t feel like Christmas till you have a real tree up.
Snow. We’ve had plenty of that. I just wish the sun would join the snow so I can get some decent pictures. Edgar took his first adventure in the snow. He was a bit, well, confused. And it is the only time he came back in the house voluntarily. That tells you what he thought of it right there.
Baking. I made Chocolate Pretzels. Not Chocolate covered pretzels, but the pretzels you put in the oven with Hershey kisses on top, then place M&Ms on them. They are pretty much heaven. Especially if you use Peanut Butter M&Ms. And they are also pretty much the easiest “baking” I’ve ever done. Sunday will be much more of a feat. I have 3 batches of the Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies (thank you Paula Dean) to make. On Sunday I will be getting together with some neighbors to do a cookie exchange. It was my idea to do this, and I’ve heard of them but never participated. I told a few girls here, and then more friends were invited. So I’m making more than planned, but that just means I get more goodies and we have a bigger variety of sweets! I decided to get this cookie swap going because I love Christmas cookies too much, and I don’t want to make a bunch of different kinds just to eat them all. This way I get a variety, but only a few of each! Less carbs, calories and sugar for me. I’m sure the hubs won’t mind.
If you were disappointed not to see any finished objects, then I suggest you head over to Tami’s Amis to check out everyone else. I’ll leave you now with some pictures of Edgar taking on the big, fluffy, white stuff.
