Does not seem like a Sunday though. With Leon still recovering from his knee surgery he is not able to go to church...and with his mobility being what it is I do not want to leave him alone for more than 5 minutes. So today we just stayed home. Hopefully next Sunday we can at least go to Sunday School.
As in the past years I make up a variety of sweets for the holidays. Certainly nice to be able to pull them out of the deep freeze at a moments notice. This morning I decided it would be a good day to make some of the goodies... so during the course of the morning I fixed a double recipe of Ginger Crinkles Cookies, a big batch of brown sugared pecans and some peanut clusters (as requested by Leon).
Our dining room table Christmas decoration has stayed pretty much the same for several years now. Some years it has tall tapers in it..then other times just one candle....this year I added the glass container for the candle. This center piece is all arranged on one large metal tray. We use our dining room table with each meal so I want something that is easy to move - with no re-arranging again. The table runner is one I used last year ~ liked it then ~ like it now.
Today's thankful note: plenty of hot water - used a lot of it while in the kitchen today - in fact ran two loads in the dish washer - and then had several large items that I did by hand.
