Today's progress

Let's see ... I taped up the Christmas cards we've received so far.

I got out all of my Christmas cookbooks and Taste of Home December issues and brought them to the forefront of the baker's rack where they will be ready for use.

Vacuumed the bedroom and ironed a vintage tablecloth to go beneath the tree in that room, so I can pile wrapped gifts there.

Cleared off, dusted, and cleaned the glass on my little glass-topped crafting desk in the bedroom; placed favorite Christmas cards beneath the glass.
 Then had to replace all of the file folders concerning nursing homes, my dad's bills, etc. etc. back on the desk.  Finding them a new home will be a project for another day.   Thankfully I have no handmade gifts yet to craft, but I do hope to create a few ornaments.

Sorted out a few gifts that will be part of gift baskets; placed them with the containers so they will be ready to assemble.

Fluffed the evergreen garland over the picture window and hung a photo ornament from the center, awaiting other trims.

Finished up an online gift order.

And that may be all for today!


  1. You are doing great! I've done the decorating, baking, cards are mailed. Need a few more gifts and then wrapping.

  2. Thanks for the encouragement, Lucie! We can cheer one another on!
