I hope your countdown to Christmas is going well. It was a slow start around here, so I've been scrambling to get caught up. Recipes and menu ideas are whirling around in my head. Presents are bought and are waiting to be wrapped. The tree needs trimmed, but since it is a fresh-cut tree, I suppose the delay will simply keep it fragrant and green for Christmas day. At least that is what we are telling ourselves. I hope your Christmas preparations are happily busy and merry! More soon.
