hi. things are moving into high gear around here. family is visiting, school events are happening, the tree is up, and there are lots of behind-closed-doors wrapping sessions. it seems as if the secret santa elves have really done their work this time around.
i've been pleased with the gifts i'm finding to give this year. i guess i can't say too much, here. i've bought a few books of poetry. this one for my dad, which i hope he likes. and some prints i've framed and am sending off to friends. a few things from this etsy shop, and this one. i suppose i'm giving things i would really like to keep for myself. hee.
i also have no fewer than three scarves on needles. each would make a very nice gift, if only i could sit down long enough to finish them, without falling asleep. double hee.
there's lots of cooking to be done. it seems a little early to make and give holiday treats, but not too early to do some homework. today's assignment: jen's gingerbread. if mine turns out as good as hers sounds, i think we may have a winner.
our first snow is almost gone. i'm hoping for more. either way, i can't wait to bundle up and get back out there, again. it's a good combination: get out, get moving, get chilled; come in, settle into the warmth, settle down for while.
best wishes. thanks for reading.
