Countdown to Christmas

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.


  1. I'm preparing for a bonfire on the solstice! Can't wait!

  2. Inch by inch everything's a cinch. I keep thinking I forgot something but for the most part I think I'm done with the major prep. I need to wrap and plan some meals...

  3. After tomorrow I can relax and do my family things and play a bit. Whew! Steph's plan sounds quite nice. I would love to sit by a bonfire.

  4. I am way behind, too. We both got sick after our trip to Leavenworth - well, really I was getting it before we left and then I shared it with my sweetheart! So, now I'm trying to catch up and I'm simplifying things a lot in the process.

    P.S. - What is the cooking in the upper right-hand picture of your header? It looks SO good!
