We have been busy doing last minute chores.. Terry is cleaning up the big mess... grin...
It was a big job.. Poor guy..
I had a nice cup of coffee and a bagel for breakfast..
I thought I would share this card that I received in the mail for my birthday from a sweet friend who lives in St. Martins ( where we have our summer cottage..)
I thought it was hilarious:-) They tease me about being an OLD hippie.. Funny, eh!!
Did you know that you can make your own cream cheese spreads for your bagels?
The one I used here is herb and garlic..
Just cream up a block of cream cheese and add a clove of crushed garlic, a tsp. of dried onion flakes and a bit of chopped parsley..
It is delicious.. Or you can add some chopped strawberries( or pineapple, blueberries, etc.) and a tsp. or two of sugar..
Anyway, the rest of the day I baked... Oreo balls, pineapple squares, shortbreads and 2 batches of fudge..
Here I am putting labels on some patchouli cream that I made for my sister...
Just use a little cookie cutter and let them dry.. Add to potpourri or freeze them in ice cubes for your punch...
Here it is evening again, already...
The lights are lit on the mantel..
I enjoy the before Christmas...Do you?
Soon the lights will need to be put away...
