G-son arrived before 7am, thankfully hubbie got up with him but this was another one of those Monday mornings when it was me he wanted to talk to before hubbie took him to school.
I did chores and had breakfast then started a really odd Monday by baking cakes, lots of cakes !
I figured out a schedule that will get the 60 cakes done by Wednesday night hopefully if all goes as planned. This morning I baked 60 layers for 30 cakes.
I had a late lunch then rested my back from the mixing by putting up more Christmas decorations.
I got all the outside trees up,no lights on them yet but they are up and ready for them.
I emptied 2 of the inside containers and got the contents put up and then re-filled the containers with my normal shelf sitters to make room for the festive Christmas shelf sitters. I emptied off this old wood stove that sits in my dining room.
The only thing I did complete was the outside Nativity Scene and I lit it up tonight for the first night.
After picking g-son up from school and getting him fed he was excited to help with some of the decorating.
Hubbie stayed busy outside in the nice 55 degree day even with the clouds hanging around on his wood pile and got a start at cleaning off the garden.
After evening chores I started my icing. G-son was excited to still be here while his dad was checking on his hunting stand so he could have a bowl of caramel icing.
I iced 24 caramel cakes tonight before my back gave out on me. Hubbie made boxes and I got all 24 of them wrapped and boxed.
Looking forward to a wonder season of celebrating the birth of our dear Savior.
Good Night and God Bless.
