Readying for the Season

 

Yesterday we went to the art museum and then had lunch out. Above is the nativity the museum displays every holiday season - the arrangement of figurines changes year to year which makes it fun to see the differences with the aid of a photo of course.  

Are you ready for the holidays or getting ready? I am trying to be ready. I continue to take it easy with knitting and barely do one hour a day. My hands are mostly recovered but I don't want to risk any repetitive injury. While my hands may be idle, my mind is active with what to knit next. My daughter wants a sweater (yay!) and I'm itching to knit something for myself.

I'm creating lists and more lists as we inch closer to Christmas Day. My son and his family will be here almost a week. I have menus to consider and outings to plan out and to offer. Hopefully the grands will be healthy this time around which will help me sleep better. I'm still recovering from lack of sleep!

Are you baking this year? What are you baking? I need some ideas!

  4. How fun to visit the art museum. I'm actually not baking this year, other than for our Christmas dinner at church. We've had some dietary changes here at our house, so the baking has been quite limited. I did ask my husband yesterday what dessert he wanted for Christmas Day and he said a currant pie. :)

  5. We have a very low-key Christmas so I don't do a lot of pre-prep. I did make some pumpkin blueberry muffins yesterday as a "trial run". They will definitely be made again over the Christmas week.

  6. The art museum looks fun, so happy that you enjoyed it. It’s just my husband and myself, so nothing to plan and we keep it a simple traditional meal for us … chicken enchiladas, tamales and apple pie.

  7. What a beautiful museum. Both my laptop and my oven are on the fritz. I am itching to make a batch of cookies but it has to wait.

  10. What a whimsical Nativity scene! The angels look so cool hanging by a thin line. I plan to start a big batch of gingerbread today. It lasts in the freezer for quite a while.
