'Twas the week before Christmas

I did an awful lot of office work over the weekend.  I had a very enjoyable Friday night, though, so it was tolerable.  I also took a fun break with Katie on Saturday afternoon to go thrifting (her idea) -- and I found a few things -- and to Target (my idea) as my list was getting long.  You know it's Target time when you can't find a Kleenex at my house!

I wandered in a few times to "watch" the game yesterday -- I had paper and calculator in my lap and a pencil in my hand, so "watch" is kind of a stretch and I didn't even listen very well.  I do know that we won, though; five in a row!  Go Pack Go!!  Earlier, when DH and I were discussing the day, I said that I'd make dinner -- a roast came to mind -- which I almost immediately regretted.  He gave me an out, saying that we could "do something quick," but I WANTED to cook and I wanted the leftovers!  I just didn't feel like I had the time.  So I was a little wishy-washy about going to the store and I went late and my roast didn't get into the oven 'til nearly 5, which meant that we didn't eat 'til about 7:30.  But it was good and we have leftovers!!

This week it's all about cookies.  Tonight, I'm going to a cookie decorating workshop with Kate & Ali and five other women.  We're not talking Betty Crocker frosting out of the can, red & green sugar crystals, chocolate sprinkles, and red hots.  We're talking Royal Icing, a special spatula, and TECHNIQUE!  I am wildly excited about it and can't wait.  I will have photos tomorrow.

I'll be baking on Wednesday for the book club holiday get-together and cookie exchange that evening.  I think I've decided on a recipe.  That's always a fun time.

Maddy will be home late on Wednesday after finals.  I had such a fun FB chat with her on Saturday night -- she and her friends had just returned from a hockey game on campus and were preparing for movie night.  She thinks I'd like the fast pace of hockey; I told her the closest I've ever come to a hockey game was watching Oliver play in "Love Story."  I'm sure that meant absolutely nothing to her.  Anyway.

There's a little party at the bowling alley for Ali's BF's birthday on Friday night.  And on Saturday night, a SOLSTICE PARTY -- a little ahead of schedule, but you celebrate when you can!!


I am so jealous of that Christmas cookie class. Can't wait to see your photos.

You know how to celebrate the Holidays. It all sounds fun!
