Some Chores Done, Others Not On Priority List!

 

 

I have been real busy. Hubby came home on Friday night so I picked him up at the airport.

I am glad to report that the tree is up and decorated and I even hung some lights outside. I am still working on decorating the inside but I have to rest a while.

Hubby and I spent the whole day running around on Saturday trying to buy the the last of the christmas gifts. I think we have everybody covered. It is just so hard to shop as the holidays approaches, the people out there are frantic. They are everywhere! I am glad I can stay home now to finish baking goodies.

I am baking Baklavas for J's teacher, Mr. S. He can't get enough of them the last time I volunteered to chaperone J's class to the Greek Festival so I  am making him a big batch. I already baked some peanut butter chips and chocolate chips cookies for the neighbors and some of the kids' friends. Some had been delivered with the cards but I need to sit down and write down more names so I can calculate how much I have to bake. 

I also want to thank Lori ( Lori's Laurels) for teaching me how to put graphics on my J.  Lori,  you are a wonderful person! I am indebted to you and your generosity forever!

    Mmmm ... cookies, I thought I might get around to doing some baking with all my time off this month, has not happened yet. The day's pass so quickly and I, unlike you am still not finished with my shopping.
    Baklavas? Is it an old family recipe? Greek family recipe? or do you just love yummy, sticky, sweet stuff?
