I have nearly all the Christmas stuff put up. Not entirely true…I have a nekkid tree in the living room and another in the dining room. The mantle is still showing off snowy trees and icicled churches. But I’m getting there. Every year, I think that I’ll thin out the decorations…sort through the tinsel and ribbons, give away some stuff. And I do. For the most part.
But right now, cakes are the issue of the day/days. Altho I did manage to vacuum up a ton of crud and wash towels today. And play with Madi. Oh, and my luggage is unpacked but still sitting in the middle of the bedroom! I think I should be commended on this accomplishment as it usually takes me a week.
Since Wednesday, I have completed all of the above tasks. Plus, baked 4 cakes, a pan of cupcakes, made royal icing, buttercream icing, made 2 batches of hard sugar candy (a first!)
and created 5 snow trees,
and kazillions of snowflakes and a few castle turrets.
All this while the rest of the Northern hemisphere shivvers. And is…Frozen!
