    Tree up and I decorated it three different times until I got satisfied. I couldn't decide which theme I liked best, but am very happy with it now. My lights are up outside and look great. I may still throw a few more lights in the outside trees but haven't made a firm decision on that yet.

    I plan on finishing my shopping this week. I still have a lot of holiday baking to do and I haven't decided which of my doctors I will make cakes for and which ones I will give homemade chocolate candies to. If I really like them, they get both

    Happy Holidays everyone!

    Looking and feeling more like spring here in NY with 60 degree temps! Guess that early snow was a real tease for us. I am an online shopper-can't pound the mall pavement as it hurts too much. Most stuff is on the way. I really bless the internet! My house is decorated almost completely and I'm busy baking. Have learned to take breaks while I'm working or else I end up in bed for days!
    Have a good week!
