The tree is still standing! The only thing that’s been bothered is a foot long section of pipe cleaner garland on the backside where Ebby jumps into the little window to bird. Got to be a record with 2 kittens and 2 half grown hellions in the house!
Can you believe….14 days till Christmas? I don’t have anything finished, nothing wrapped, nothing boxed to ship….I’m so not ready. On the positive side, I do have cards addressed and ready to mail, all but 2 types of candy made and I’ll hopefully work on fruit cakes tonight. (I know, no one likes fruit cakes). These are not your traditional fruit cakes….these are in a light, fluffy dough base using brandy marinated dried fruits and some nuts. YUMMY~ almost makes me want to dig out Granny B’s recipe for Rum Balls!!!!! Those were highly marinated and brushed every few days with fresh rum for months before serving :-) Don’t remember how the balls tasted, but the rum was pretty fruity! Seriously, haven’t made them in at least 30 years.
Have so many things I would like to do this year, but somehow – time has flown again and they’re not going to happen in 2013. Maybe I’ll be better organized for 2014….maybe.
