It's that time of year when the world falls in love,
every song you hear seems to say, Merry Christmas,
May your new year's dreams come true.
We have had plenty of Christmas music around our house since the cable TV station plays it for us and we don't have to scramble to find the tunes on our mp3 player. Pretty nice and it got me in the mood to start Christmas baking. I am down to just doing the old standards, and seem to have only two varieties left to make, Mexican (or Russian) teacakes and pecan tarts.
Luckily I had the necessary ingredients on hand and didn't have to venture into the cold day. You may be able to see a little doggie face in the right hand corner of the rum balls picture. He was playing sick-boy all day so he could sleep in my cozy comforter undisturbed. But the smell of cookies snapped him right back to good health. No cookies for the pup tho since most of them had some sort of chocolate in the mix. And lots and lots of butter.
While the cookies baked I picked up the needles and finished off the nearly done Eternity for Ann in cobalt blue. Such a pretty color.
Today is knitting and we are meeting at Hobby Lobby, where there is stuff I need for my bedroom sewing, and then I think I may go to the new Costco in GA and check it out. It's warmer down there.
