Another beautiful December morning. After chores and breakfast I took a walk in the 51 degree sunshine. Ahhhh !!! can this really be December ??
Back inside I baked a couple pound cakes and a wine cake for market tomorrow.
After lunch I got the Christmas decorating started. I emptied 5 of the plastic containers from the shed and got most of it in place. I changed all the rugs, furniture covers and pillows and even put a Christmas bed spread on our bed.
Hubbie came in from work and came out of the bedroom whistling "Christmas times a comin" .
After chores I tackled the weekly paperwork and bill paying.
I wrapped the cakes and finished icing the last of the caramel cakes for the large order as well as a couple chocolate cakes for market.
I expect a very slow day at market as the week after everyone has stuffed on Thanksgiving is always a slow one.
As we moved things around in the living room I have come to the definite conclusion that we need a slimmer tree. I am going to look tomorrow at Lowes and if I can't find one I will probably take a chance on a real tree and hope we don't get cold enough to have to build a fire in the upstairs wood stove. That is the main reason I started using a artificial tree , the heat from the wood stove dried the trees out in no time no matter how much water we kept around the base. The last time I had to buy a new tree and re-decorate it so we would have a tree with some needles on it on Christmas morning was the last real tree we had.
Daughter's teams played a rare Wednesday night game tonight as they traveled to Enka high school in Buncombe county. Both her teams lost their games tonight, her JV team lost by 4 points after beating this same team at home a couple weeks ago by 20 points, how does that happen ???
This is a pic of this years varsity team, daughter is the second coach from the right.
Thankful for a wonderful day and for all the Lord's blessings of the day.
Good Night and God Bless
