Christmas is only 28 days away. Since I never start Christmas before Thanksgiving I have a lot to pack into those 28 days. Yesterday, I rearranged the living room to make room for the Christmas tree (which isn't going up yet) and the little bear tree. Brian says he will install the tree so the branches can settle down. The tree is artificial so the branches are already down when it goes up.
Today, I started the day making banana nut muffins for breakfast. I made enough to share with our neighbor. When I called to see if they wanted warm muffins for breakfast, the answer was, "Sure, just let me put my pants on." He had just gotten out of the shower.
I made a loaf of Honey Wheat bread in the bread machine. It turned out very well this time.
Then, I made a raisin spice cake in a bundt pan. It will last until almost Christmas. It goes into a tin like fruitcake.
Then, I made Sally Lunn. That is an egg bread. It had to raise so I made a double batch of oatmeal raisin cookies. By the time I divide them with the neighbors they will not last long.
I made pfeffernuesse cookies the day before Thanksgiving. They are in a tin with an apple. When the boys were home I had to make a double batch and they didn't last long. These will last a week or two. My neighbor is from Germany and he really likes those cookies too.
It is cold and windy here today. Wind gusts 20 to 30 mph. It is only 38 degs so it feels very cold for us warm weather people. The rain and snow went to the north of us. Hooray!!!
Tomorrow I may go to Phoenix. My sister is leaving for Illinois on Wednesday and I would like to visit with her and my other sister before she leaves.
