I love Christmas, watching my friends and family open gifts is one of my favorite things. That I get to open gifts too is just a bonus. I've been busy with cookies and gift-wrapping. We've run out of room under the tree for gifts and even the top of the bookcase is full:
I had one cookie swap early in the month and all 6 dozen cookies I brought home are long gone. I've given away 12 dozen cookies as gifts. And here are the 11 dozen ginger-molasses cookies bagged in groups of 3 for tomorrow's swap:
I made hazelnut-anise cookie dough yesterday and this afternoon baked up a few dozen just for a change of pace. But this evening I had to make another few dozen of the ginger-molasses cookies for a plate of samples at the swap. The last of the approximately 500 pre-Christmas cookies I baked this year:
I have a post in my head about my indoor gardening endeavors, but haven't found the time to actually take the photos I need for it or type it up. But on the bright side I've been done shopping and wrapping for ages (or one week which feels like ages when you're staring at all the wrapped packages under the tree). Merry Christmas all!
