Updated Bench

Updated Amish Bench

I bought this bench so many years ago, that I can't even remember. I think it was in Ohio at an Amish place.  It is not a large bench, but I wanted to update it to a more farmhouse bench.

Well, Christmas is coming whether we are ready or not. I hope you are, but don't panic, you still have a few more days. This is the time when I love to relax and enjoy how lovely the house looks. I finished baking today and my father-in-law stopped by and sampled some of the cookies. He loves his sweets.  He says, "I never met a cookie I didn't like". At 90, he still gets around well and plays golf 2-3 times a week. He even beats my hubby when they play together. Not bad for 90.  I hope I have that much energy when I am 90.

Happy Monday! I hope you had a lovely weekend and are ready for a new week.  I bet you are like me and this week is going to be a little crazy. I am trying to get more baking done and to finish up my Christmas shopping. I mixed up some cookies last night so I could make them today.

Happy Sunday. I hope you had an enjoyable weekend. Can you believe that Christmas is only 10 days away. The excitement is growing and I have finally started to think of what food to make. My son and family are coming on the 20th and then my brother-in-law and family is coming on the 23rd so we will have a house full. 

I bought a ham for Christmas day and a whole beef tenderloin for Christmas Eve, but other than that, no idea. I am still working on my cookies. I'm sure it will come together. Are you hosting family at Christmas? 

I hope you enjoy checking out my features and all of the amazing posts. I had so much fun looking at all of the posts. Wow, you guys are amazing. Have a great week ahead.

Have you began your countdown to Christmas yet? It is coming up so fast. I am finally done decorating, and I was hoping to start my cookie baking but that hasn't happened yet. I did finally get my list together and I am going tomorrow to buy my ingredients. 

The problem is I keep seeing all of these great and yummy desserts being posted that I want to make and my list is growing. I have to cut back if I am ever going to get it done. 
My neighbor is moving and wants to have a garage sale this weekend and I am not sure I can fit it in. One more thing to add to my growing list. How is your holiday plans coming?

Can you believe that in 2 weeks it will be Christmas Eve? That just doesn't seem possible, but it is a fact. I finally finished decorating. I am so late this year, but at least I am done.  A couple of more gifts and that will be done too.  How is your week going? Are you in hectic Christmas mode?

Fabric Decorated Candy Canes

Fabric Decorated Candy Canes

Do you ever find yourself wanting to make a simple but lovely Christmas decor but don't have much time? Who has time this time of year, right? 

Well, that was me yesterday. I wanted something, but had no time. I was cleaning my pantry (hoping to find room for baking supplies) when I found some candy canes. They might have been from last year. Yikes! They were still wrapped. 

What could I do with them to make them better and a pretty display as well.

Happy Sunday. I hope you had an enjoyable weekend. We spent the weekend putting up decorations. The outside is finally done and the tree is up. I have some other decorations done, but still need to finish the inside. Hopefully by tomorrow night. 

The weather was so beautiful this weekend. We were out side most of the day on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The dogs were so tired that we had to wake them up in the morning - it was 8 o'clock. 

How was your weekend? Are you done with your decorating? Have you done any baking yet? I hope to do some this week. I think tonight while watching a Hallmark movie I will make out my shopping list so I will have everything I need for my cookies. 

I hope you enjoy checking out my features and all of the amazing posts. I had so much fun looking at all of the posts. Wow, you guys are amazing. Have a great week ahead.

I can't believe that Christmas will be here in only 20 days. For some reason it just doesn't seem possible. Are you feeling that way, or is it just me? Maybe because I have not finished decorating. I think this year it just might be slimmed down.   

The weather has been very cool - almost winter like here in Florida. My goal is to get everything done by the weekend and then enjoy. Well, I do have to bake. I like to hand out cookies to friends and neighbors. Do you have any traditions that you do?

You're The Star - Garden Feature Week

Welcome to You're The Star - Garden Feature Week

It's December and Christmas will be upon us before we know it - 23 more days to be exact. I am not ready. I still need to do my shopping and decorate the house. Decorating is on the agenda for this week now that Thanksgiving is over. I hope you had a lovely holiday. 

Did you do any Black Friday shopping? or are you a Cyber Monday shopper? I didn't venture out on Friday. I might check out some sales on Cyber Monday.

Now that Thanksgiving is over, I need something other than turkey for dinner. Although I love leftovers, I was ready for something NOT turkey. So this Creamy Lemon Chicken was easy and tasted great. The creamy lemon sauce is amazing. Of course, I do love my chicken recipes.
