I'm doing two of my most favorite things today ~ mixing batches of Christmas cookies (which I will be baking with my sister tomorrow at her Cookie Baking Party at her house, and.....
So, my kitchen looks a mess but what fun it is to mix cookies and listen to holiday music.
And.....Christmas cards....do you still send them? I know a lot people have stopped this ritual, but to me it's a very special part of the holiday season.
This morning I pulled out my box of ribbon that was somehow forgotten in the decorating stage of the Christmas tree, and I added a red and gold striped ribbon to the tree.
Then I went outside and gathered together some of the evergreen branches left over from the Christmas tree and made some wreaths for the back doors.
So simple.....just put a bunch of greens together and tie with a ribbon at the top.
I also added some greens to the basket of pine cones on the back porch bench, and tucked in some nandina berries. The birds will eventually come in on the porch and eat the berries.
Well,........I better get back to mixing up more cookie dough.
I hope to visit all of my dear blogging friends this evening when I finally have a chance to sit down and take a break!
Enjoy your day!
