Joining Sandra for the party. 
Welcome to my world.
Sharing a look at my weeks plans and a few other things.  
I hope you enjoy your visit! 

Merry Christmas  

The Weather
 A bit chilly.  Winter is here.  It's cloudy today. Rained yesterday afternoon.  It looks like we might have a few more sprinkles today.
It's gearing up for some really chilly weather the end of the week!

Right Now I  Am
I am glad I am home now for the rest of the day.  Worked this morning.  And I am a little sad I didn't get to write my post last night instead of now at 2:30 in the afternoon.
But I am Blessed that I only have to work a few hours everyday. 

Praise The Lord!

On the menu
Monday-Standing Rib Roast (got it on sale) Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans or Brocolli, Pop Overs and maybe an avacado if one is ripe I have a few in the drawer I think one might be ready.
Tuesday- Yummy leftovers from last night
Wednesday -Mexican Catfish, Spainish Rice, Guacamole
Thursday- Egg Plant Parmesan, Side Pasta, Salad, Garlic Bread
Friday-  Yummy leftovers from last night

In the kitchen
A recipe I want to try.  I have so many on my pinterest boards.
I want to do some special recipes for Christmas dinner.  Our future son in law and his family are coming to our house for dinner.  
How clever!  Just cut a cream cheese block on the diagonal to have the pieces to make a tree shape.  Then add some bell pepper decorations and some pepper jelly (and Wheat Thins of course), and you have an awesomely cute appetizer!  Fire Crackers ~ 1 lb unsalted Saltine Crackers, cup Canola Oil, Ranch Dressing Mix, Red Pepper Flakes, Garlic Powder. Once you start munching you just can't stop!!
Two super simple ideas.  I've made the cream cheese version before using a special sauce we buy at the store.  I've never made it in the shape of a tree.  This is prefect for Christmas.  The crackers are super simple and yummy too. 
This is the sauce I use . . . 
Have you seen or tried it?
Here's the link for the recipe for the crackers. 

In the garden
Not much pretty to look at.  I have pansy's and mums in the bed. 
I am spending as much time as I can when the weather is nice trying to get beds ready for planting.  I missed fall planting I hope to be ready for my next chance!
I do have some carrots coming up!  

On the to do list
A couple more gifts to buy.
Boxes to ship. 
A couple more presents to wrap plus the two that I need to buy.
Get house ready for special company

I thought this was cute.  My grandson would like to make one.

On the camera
I haven't posted very many photo's of my sweet 'new' dog.  She moves so fast it's hard to get a good shot.  To explain this photo. 
The is a stick she is chewing on.  It is so long.  It is crazy.  If you look close you can see the end almost touching the heater. 
I hope I can get a photo of her carrying it around!
