. . . . . . a little bit like Christmas!
Yesterday we did venture out for several hours of necessary
shopping - food for now, and for Christmas.
This included a visit to the World Market store as they are now stocking
the shelves with international delicacies such as British goodies.
I must have jars of Robertson's sweet mincemeat to make my traditional
mince pies, a Walker's Christmas pudding (I no longer make my own),
a big tin of Quality Street chocolates (Brits reading this will understand)
and other, yummy items which I only see during the holiday season. . . . and
will erase dieting from the to do list for a few weeks!
Speaking of coming weeks. . . . . . not many remaining before the 25th!
This cute December barn board calendar caught my eye in Target ($5).
Even I will remember the day as I move the wreath on the way to
pour my morning coffee!
I've started decorating and today I plan to finish up, both inside
and out as rain is coming tomorrow. Not doing quite as much this year
for obvious reasons - the main one being no parties indoors.
I still want to enjoy candlelit holiday evenings sitting by the hearth
though, and perhaps, if lucky, the weather will be kind over the holidays
and allow some distanced porch sitting with some family and friends.
Are you planning to decorate?
We should share our favorite Christmas ornaments in the
coming weeks - it would be fun.
