Welcome December! For the first time in my life, my Christmas tree and house is completely decorated by December 1st! I can't believe it! I'm not saying that I still won't be adding stuff in from now till New Year's BUT the bulk of it, 99% of it is done! Very happy we will have the whole month to enjoy it. I'm also almost done Christmas shopping...my husband and I will be shopping this weekend and then its just some extra odds and ends. I think what really helped me was the fact that we bought a pre lit artificial tree this year and we put it up the weekend before Thanksgiving. We put it up so early because with everyone's busy schedules, there was a free night to decorate it when all of us would be home. You really have to grab the moments when you can.
Wrapping is the next chore. I don't mind wrapping but I do get tired of it! I'm not gonna lie! Also getting together my cookie recipes. I'm making an easy fudge recipe too. If it comes out good, I will post it!
Hobby Lobby has been having the best sale of 60-66% off on Christmas and I have been shopping. I think it's my favorite store. I find their prices fair especially since most of the items are discounted.
Here's some more Christmas around the house!
My husband made a friend in Home Depot last weekend! Have you ever seen a St Bernard in person? They are so beautiful and so large but almost seem artificial! Seriously! It almost looks like something in a costume. He was friendly too!
Well, I'm going to go out now and do some work in the chicken coop. I've put together a mix that helps them with moulting this time of year. My coop is warm with no drafts and lots of clean hay/straw but this mix of grains, nuts and seeds gives them a natural heat too. I took some notes from Fresh Eggs Daily, a wonderful blog for chicken keepers. My mix contains cracked corn, crushed peanuts, flax seed, oats, sunflower kernels, raisins, cornmeal. I also bake cornmeal cakes for my chickens. I buy the boxes of JIFFY cornbread and they love it! Especially with a can of corn or creamed corn poured on top! I love my chickens!
Have a great day!
Looks so cozy and nice!!! Enjoy, JanieReplyDelete
Your tree looks so festive! I never saw a St Bernard in person but we did have a Tibetan Mastiff once and he was huge too! JaniceReplyDelete
So proud of your blog, I have been out of touch for a while with so much going on in my life and I was lost because of my illness but I'm stronger and I am here to tell you about a natural remedy that is guaranteed to make you wonder why your doctor didn't tell you about it. Then, on the other hand, it is pretty obvious why your doctor didn't, because that's not his job, is it? But, seriously, promise me you won't get too angry with your health practitioner, it's really not their fault. They can only practice what they're told to practice, right? When your health is at risk there's no time for Tom foolery, you've got to get down to the cause and nip it in the bud. So you've been suffering from painful gout attacks have you?
