Ready or not, the holidays are here. I have my lists of what I plan to make. Treat and gift-wise. My husband wants my usual candy, but my recipes are lost in the great abyss caused by our move. I'll have to see if I can find the recipes online. The treat list is shorter than normal and the cookies all have shortcuts. I never get it all done and stress myself out about it.
I found a neat idea to make single-use or travel Christmas soaps that I was actually going to start today, but my husband remembered that I promised we could go to a movie and then we're going to do laundry and go swimming. So for now my plan for the week is to come home from work, go on the treadmill, eat supper, work on potholders and dishcloths, and go to bed. If I need a break from the yarn I will start some soap, otherwise that will be next
Saturdays project. Or I'll not worry about too many dishcloths and get cute hand towels to go with the soaps instead. Needless to say, I am very good at Secret Santa gifts.
We ordered a new Christmas tree that I am really excited about. It has pinecones and berries already on it. I'm hoping to make sone popcorn and cranberry garland for it and for the balcony. I have a busy few weeks planned, and I need to remember not to stress myself out over it. If I don't get it all done it's okay. It's more important to stay healthy and get my exercise.
