the one thing I don't like about the holiday grand plan is they suggest major dejunking in the attic and closets which is not possible at this time of the year. I make that a January deal.

My list for this week:
-bring up all the christmas boxes from the crawl space and place in three season room
-go through the boxes and see what I can get rid of and what I need - hanging things etc.
-start Christmas cards
- buy ingredients for Thanksgiving
-start making extra dinners for freezer
-clean out freezer at the beginning of the week
-shop for christmas stocking stuffers
-wrap presents after listing them
-put up most of the Christmas lights outside
it is always a joy to be here with you!

Tweaking this a bit h had funds set aside but forgot to give it to me not helpful, I just used cc and said for future reference I begin in Sept. & Not Oct. Nov. & To get the cash in the right denominations for the cards helps. Just bc we have funds set aside in a spectal acct we need to get access to it. Duh. Lol!

Got the ch. Pie on sale. Yea, cheese cake also. Freezer is full.

Still tweakng dump cake recipes this week. Finally looked up on u tube to research cooking times that helped duh. I need crock pot liners.

Have day set aside for family tky dinner. Let them know I cannot do payroll that day via txt.

Thanksgiving was tasty!
Recap ~ no one asked me to bring the jello salad I did not offer. I forgot to get stuff for it orange flavor so we did not have it. Sort of missed having it.
The deviled eggs I took were good and went quickly. The rolls I bought & took were a hit.

I will be writing down the recipe for the deviled eggs & jello salad for family members to have.

Dd's green been cassarole was wonderful and I donot even like that dish!

Dson's fil gave gravey making lessons to the ones that wanted to know how to make it. Dgd made their 1st pie and were great tasting.

Feed sack aprons & hot pads and dish cloths were a hit with requests for more, just finished up some today.

I still have to do our Christmas cards (but without a picture or I may grab a picture from when they were little as no one really wanted a picture this year) Next year I will take pictures during trips etc. so that I have a picture for next year.

I still have to decorate inside
