Winter Garden

So it is officially Winter.  Happy Solstice to you all!  I wanted to stay up or get up and watch the eclipse but I just didn’t have it in me.  I took a muscle relaxer ~ my hands and forearms were cramping like crazy, not to mention my back ~ and rolled over the first time at 6:38 this morning.  I have had my yogurt and coffee and thought I would share some gardening pictures on this very warm, muggy first day of Winter 2010.

With temperature close to 75 today, I am going out to open the greenhouse and water everything really well.  Hopefully the cooler temperatures will return by the weekend and not dampen our lettuces’ perkiness!

A Little Peek at My Christmas Kitchen

Yesterday I made chocolate fudge, date walnut fudge, buckeyes and faux buckeyes, Martha Washington candy, cut and wrapped soap, got packages ready to mail – no real housework accomplished.  Today I will catch up on laundry, get the kitchen back in working order, make 6-8 batches of sugar cookie dough, super duper dough, a few faux blossom cookies, cranberry pecan bark, try out one or two gluten free cookie recipes, get a couple of packages ready to mail tomorrow (Tami yours included 🙂 ) – and maybe a nap??? OH no…water and pick tomatoes and lettuce – can’t forget that! Supper??? Who knows. Maybe??? Salad?

Now a little peek at my Christmas kitchen.  I will snap a few more in the next couple of days and try to get you a few recipes too!

Doing A Little Cookie Baking

Thought I might share my cookie baking escapes with you…one more time.  You are probably getting bored with it but that and cleaning have been what I have been up to!  Today I am going to finish cleaning my shop, wrap a few presents and make some soap!  Hope you are all readying yourselves for the holidays.  Tomorrow I am back to the allergist and might have something more interesting to write about than baking cookies!
