I'm a little earlier than usual but I've got company coming tonight and I know I'll be busy then.  So here goes my weekend summary.

Friday night was a Christmas work party and dinner.  We had fun dressing up (as in no jeans) and eating out.  Fancy is fun once in a while, and I wore new dress clothes that fit like a dream. I felt comfortable instead of fidgeting with clothes that make me feel icky.  I'm donating those!

Saturday was baking and, my oh my, did I bake!  Five different cookies:  peanut butter, chocolate chip, magic bars, gingersnaps, and Russian tea cookies.  I blasted the holiday tunes and eased into my rhythm of baking.  Later, I watched the first Harry Potter movie and finished my third, yes third baable hat.  It's the last one as well.  

So far today, I've been to Mass and was entertained by the baby who isn't a baby but a toddler now.  I am his "church auntie" as I sit and barely pay attention to the service. I did catch some "advent and the waiting is over" part of the homily.

Laundry is laundrying, I've got a carrot cake to bake along with some blueberry muffins.  And some bathrooms need a swill.  I'm sure my holiday music will motivate me as I deck my halls and fa la la around the house.

How was your weekend?


  1. Carrot cake and blueberry muffins sound sooo good! I had a very low key weekend, jut staying in, reading and knitting.

  2. Sounds good to me. After cooking up a frenzy Saturday, I have sat with my feet up most of the day watching Christmas films and relaxing!

  3. Sounds like a lovely weekend! Happy Christmas! xx

  4. Sounds like a busy but happy weekend. I love baking frenzies!

  5. yep. i've been fa la laaing myself......and it will continue at least a couple more days. three parties in the next two day. (party animal).

  6. I have been trying to "take it easy" doctor's orders after my foot surgery on Thursday. I have a hard time laying still with my foot elevated ~ I want to be up and doing! No baking for me this week - that will have to wait. Sounds like you had a nice weekend. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

    1. the more you rest the quicker you will heal!

  7. It is oddly warm here in Chicago. Im currently watching COME TO THE STABLE an old Movie with Nuns in it trying to raise an orphanage or hospital or something.
    Lots of carols are being listened to at night too.
    FIreman is snoring in the chair next to me!

  8. I haven't been feeling that great, so I just made sure I got plenty of rest. This meant netflix and knitting and boy was it needed. Still feeling a bit puny, but nothing like yesterday. Have a great week and a very merry Christmas!

  9. Sounds very merry indeed, all except the bathrooms that need a swill. But really, we all have to get to those chores before company comes right? Just turn up the music and think about knitting and cookies and family. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  10. I'm so impressed with your baking. They all sound delicious. I know your family will enjoy those tasty treats! Merry Christmas

  11. What a busy productive weekend, sounds good tho' enjoy eating all those biscuits! I had a productive weekend too which I needed to do :)

  12. I mist the joy and fun of baking cookies with friends or family. I wish I could help in any way, but I just get IN THE WAY. Christmas is fun when we can share it with other.

  13. What a lovely weekend. Cookie baking was on our Saturday calendar as well. More to bake this week!

  14. Wow you have been baking! Put me to shame. Those Russian Tea cookies sound interesting. Happy days.

  15. This weekend was the first weekend of my Christmas holiday, so I've been super lazy. I just sat on the couch with knitting and a movie, and I loved it!

  16. I do love baking very much, too. Still, recently I had no time for this hobby. But I think I'll have some, to do some cookies for Christmas Eve.

  17. Wow, all that baking...sounds wonderful! You had a full weekend, same here...visiting friends and going out for festive drinks, all fun stuff! Hope you are having a great week and I would like to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy & Healthy New Year! xx

  18. Got any more goodies? They all sound so YUM! I love Russian Tea Cakes and carrot cake. I wanna see you in that dress. I love how good you felt. That is what clothes is supposed to do; I concur that you should get rid of the ones that make you fidget.
