Nature is so lovely even my cheapo camera couldn't tarnish it......
Okay...I'll stop...but I have more! I did manage to bake some banana nut bread and took a suggestion from Anita over at Aunt Nubby's Kitchen and added cream cheese to the batter. You can find the recipe for it over on her blog. It was VERY tasty and I think I'll be making it with cream cheese from now on. Also, if you don't have the amount of bananas called for in the recipe just add some applesauce to replace the moisture that the bananas would give.
Speaking of Christmas dreams.........I spent yesterday trying to finalize my gift making and baking plans (which should have been done eons ago). I went to the files, patterns and pictures I've saved over the year(s) and of course, Pinterest and realized there's so much I want to do and I am already behind!!!! So, I have decided instead of the 12 days of Christmas I will make it the 12 months of Christmas thereby giving me more time. Problem solved.....whew...I feel better now. But I still need to come up with this month and a birthday for one in December. Breathe deeply............
Here are some of my ideas and if you have any that are quicker please let me know. This post will go on all
week month so check back in and let me know how you're doing. Maybe if we cheer each other on we'll get it all done...ya think? Well, it can't hurt that's for sure. So here's my ideas.......
Hats for the grands as the Big Snowy Owl is definitely not going to make it this month. It takes 1 skein for each hat and I've ordered more yarn. 2 skeins for the adult hats which I have 2 to make.
I have much more to show you but it will have to wait until tomorrow. They will be more "craftsy" items that will be quick but precious little items to tuck in. Hopefully I'll get by to say hello as I want to see what you all are up to at this exciting time of year!
So...here's the tally, like my friend Connie up in Minnesota does:
Gifts finished: 1
Presents Wrapped: 0
Cards sent: 0
Presents mailed: 0
Decorations up: a few outside but that's it!
I hope you're in better shape than me! TTYL!
