The weather
64 today then dropping some into lower 60's. 40% chance of 
rain on Christmas Day. 

On the breakfast plate

I almost forgot I wanted to take a pic.  I was just about to turn the omelet and stopped and grabbed my phone.  I love mushrooms in my omelets.  So whenever I have any I make an omelet!

As I look out my window
Sunshine.  I don't have a pretty view.  Just winter/dead grass. 

Something new on the blog
I decided to do a feature I am calling Rustic Food Photos.  This will be the first photo/post I'll share in a few days. 

Right now I am 
Trying to concentrate on this post.  I have a million things to do over the weekend!

As I look around the house
I see Christmas and a few alot of dog hair

On Today's To Do List
In the kitchen  . . . 
Sausage Balls
Ginger Bread 
Chocolate Bundt Cake 

My 'Ta Da' Moment
Made it to the post office. I know that isn't a big deal but sometimes I just can't get the simplest things accomplished. 

And, I think I actually posted everyday this week!

This weeks menu
Monday-Christmas Eve 
Standing Rib Roast, Mashed Potato's, Creamed Spinach, 
Deviled Eggs, hopefully Popovers too!

Craft basket plans
I am hoping to join the Crochet Along this year and make an afghan. I got a few blocks done last year but wasn't able to buy yarn. But my clients have been sweet and have given me a couple very nice gifts. $$$$ Yea. 
I am also planning on continuing making post cards.  Not waiting till December again!
One of my favorites this year . . .
