Such a busy season.  Here’s a rundown of the past week:

  • “Living Christmas Tree” show at church…live camel, donkey, chickens, and sheep paraded thru the sanctuary! Awesome Christmas story of the greatest gift ever given…Jesus Christ.
  • “Yuletide Celebration”, the Indianapolis Symphony’s annual extravaganza of dance, song, and fabulous costumes.  This year, starring Sandi Patty, so of course it was fabulous.  Hubby and I had a rare fancy dinner out afterward and had wonderful time!
  • “Celebration Crossing” at the museum means many events, thousands of school children, and special visits with Santa and the Mrs. I love this time of year at the museum!
  • Shopping x 2….that means shopping online (love Amazon!) as well as in stores every chance I get.  Today, stopped by TJ Maxx at lunchtime to pick up some more things;  not only am I doing our own shopping, but grandparents’ shopping, too.  Lots!
  • Baking…well, made cookies for the holiday concert at school and still need to make my famous sugared pecans (thanks, Jill, for the recipe some 20 years ago!)…usually get them from a Georgia farm, but this year have to resort to Cosco, but haven’t made it over there, yet!  I’m so far behind…..
  • Painting…yes, as you know, I am STILL painting, cleaning, organizing, condensing, and planning for the in-laws to move in in a few short weeks.  Big  job.  (No, hubby doesn’t paint much.)  The before and after pictures will be in a later post…and I promise they’ll be stunning! 🙂
  • Shoveling…this has got to be the coldest and snowiest December ever!  What will January and February bring??
  • Television…got to be a  guest on Channel 8’s Indy Style show, along with the chef from the famous L. S. Ayres Tea Room.  Check out part of our appearance here.
