Rockin' and Rollin'.........

This will be short as I was up at 3:00 this morning and I'm still going!  But not for long I'm afraid.....I was so grateful though because I got up and got going and pressed Bob Ross who I had washed yesterday and he was dry this morning.  Then I found a frame that I had bought for something else, cut a piece of cardboard the size of the insert in the frame and mitered and sewed the corners around the cardboard.  I amazed myself but I think my angels were helping me!  I got it in the frame (just barely) wrapped it in bubble wrap found a box and wrapped the box and then loaded up 2 more boxes with the 2016 Collectible Ornaments, Chex Mix, Christmas cookies which are spritz cookie press cookies that used cream cheese, cinnamon and orange zest.............yes, I cannot tell a lie....they are delicious!  Recipe is here
Taped up the boxes including a container of that great Palmetto Cheese Spread I told you about, labeled and addressed the 3 boxes and drove to the next town and had them in the mail by 10:00 a.m.!  Woo Hoo !  Then I stopped by the market for a couple things came home and had breakfast and then got going doing some cleaning !  It's been a great day but I am fading fast now! LOL!
So glad to get those off in the mail!  Now I just have the garbage guy and the postman when they come next Tuesday. I might get up to a lot of mischief now that most of my Christmas is taken care of....oh, but I have cards yet and some more cookies to bake...my fav's Russian Tea Cakes...they go by a million different names but they have crushed almonds and they're rolled in powdered sugar....some call them snowballs.
Here's Bob in all his glory....I think my son will be very surprised when he opens his gift.  I hope he likes it!
Happy Trails!

  1. Bob turned out great! I'm so imor seed by all you got done so early. I, too, was at the post office today about 9:30 but I sure didn't get up at 3:00 a.m.! You always impress me with your seemingly boundless energy.
    My husband loves those Russian Tea Cakes. I'll have to find a recipe and make him some.
    Blessings,
    Betsy

    1. I did relax, the kids called, we had some laughs and talked about the year ahead and their plans. Then I got my pj's on and watched The Holiday with my favorite cottage ever! It was a good movie...cute and finally a female co-star that did NOT take off all her clothes! I was shocked...she had more clothes on than the guy did! Amazing!

  3. Bob looks great and I am sure son will love it. You did a lot today! Your Christmas goodies sound yummy too. Now for some fun and relaxing crafting and reading. I love waking up at crazy hours and accomplishing things that would take twice as long if I waited until the house woke up. Have a great nights sleep, dear.
