Laid Back Kind Of Week

After the whirlwind of last week, this was a week of much needed down time!!! I did manage to get a lot of Christmas shopping done so that is good. I have that "nagging" feeling that I need to get stuff done as soon as I can for some reason. My hunches usually pan out OR by having things ready I avert any disasters :-)

I did manage to do a little bit of scrapping, but I am focusing on those calendars and these scrapbooks for gifts so here goes. . . Created using Created using Told you it was a laid back kind of week and you can tell I didn't get a whole lot done!!! But I'm gonna call that a wrap and might go wrap some gifts now!!! Until next time. . .

Crunch Time

Well, it is certainly crunch time!!! While we won't do our feast until Saturday, there is still plenty of work to do!!! I have always gotten a fresh turkey to prepare so I ventured out yesterday to get all the perishables so I can do the bulk of my cooking on Friday. . .frees me up to play with the grandkids on Saturday instead of spending a ton of time in the kitchen. I found a turkey, put it in my cart and decided to take a look at the ingredient list. Good thing I did because the second ingredient behind "turkey" was vinegar!!! My daughter is allergic to vinegar!!! So, put that turkey back and ended up getting a frozen bird!!! Now, I have a limited amount of time to get that bird thawed out. . .so I feel confident there will be a day of cold water bathes for the turkey tomorrow!!! I want to put the bird on early Friday so it can cook. . .then on Saturday I'll just heat it up before we eat. Works for me instead of getting up super early on the day of the meal!!!

I have managed to do a little bit of scrapping so I do want to share what I have done before the chaos ensues!!! So, here goes. . .
