Wrapping it up…

Dear me:

Trying to wrap things up for the Holiday’s, but things just keep popping up….

Last Thursday was our Christmas Pot Luck and grab bag at work and even though I could not bake or cook for it, it was still quite a lot of work.  I made little bags full of candy for 40 something girls plus Christmas cards with candy canes for the guys.  I had to wrap it up in just three days.  I was coming home every evening and making bags…  I think I was having nightmare with those bags…  Got them done though…

Everyone at work asks why I do this, but there’s no special reason.  I enjoy giving and this is my way of saying thank you…  I get pleasure from it…  I’ve done this every year for the last five and I don’t think I will ever stop…  I enjoy searching throughout the year for that one small token to put in each bag…  Everyone gets a little something which makes them happy and so am I…

This week, we’re having a bake sale at work and all proceeds are going to a co-worker’s daughter.  This is the one I wrote about in November which got injured in a motorcycle accident…   The flyer is going up today for tomorrow’s bake sale held in the lobby…  I baked this morning and the macaroons came out delish…  Hope we can bring in big bucks for her…

This weekend I plan to start my Christmas baking.  I want to make my famous Guava Cheesecake, Date Cookies, and Chocolate Chip Coconut Macaroons…  I’m so excited…  Having Christmas Eve over my house and I wanted to buy Christmas plates for 14 people.  After much thought, I decided against it.  I just don’t have to room to store so many Christmas items…  Besides, I will use it only once a year.  It makes no sense… That’s settled… No additional plates…

We have a tradition in my house.  We each sing a line out of a song.  It has always been the Twelve Days of Christmas, but I think this year I’ll try something new…  Perhaps, I’ll use Pa-rum-pa-pum-pum and make up something in between.  We always get a good laugh out of the singing especially when you have a bunch of older people signing in a different language than theirs…  It’s hilarious…
