What makes a Happy Home? I love to take care of my family. For me, creating a home that is warm and inviting, where everyone feels welcome is pure joy! The smell of fresh laundry just in off the clothesline, a neat and tidy home and garden, a good home cooked meal, a few desserts here and there, the love of family, friends and fellowship all help to make our home a Happy Home. Join me as we celebrate the holidays, the birthdays and the every days!

Hurry... Hurry... Faster... Faster...
Does anyone else feel this way? I'm usually cool, calm and collected, and it's not like I have a ton to do. I have everything done except my cookie trays. I have about 20 to make and most people need them by Sunday with a few throughout next week. Although the later ones don't give me extra time, I have to have everything done by Sunday since those trays need to have everything on them anyway.
I keep a running total of how many cookies I've made of each kind and how many should go on each tray (large and small). Yesterday and today I made double batches of peanut butter, chocolate chip, chocolate crinkles and snicker doodles. Plus a triple batch of peanut brittle and a double batch of of peppermint bark.
I'm right on schedule, but feel so far behind. I even finished early tonight, have had my bath and have time to blog. So it's not time that has me frazzled...I think that there's so much that I want to do and I feel that I don't have time to do it. Why do I have to work? It gets in the way of everything:) That's a good 9hrs out of my day that I could be doing something that I want to do.
Two weeks from today and our Texans will be home! I can't wait to see them, but you knew that didn't you?! Anyone watching all the Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channel this month?
They have those sappy-you-can-figure-out-the-ending-immediately Christmas movies running continuously. I usually wouldn't watch these kinds of movies, but at Christmas I LOVE them!
You know what? I feel better already... after pouring my feelings out to you, that and watching one of those sappy movies. You know what else? I'm hungry. I wolfed down my dinner so quickly that I don't think my stomach registered me eating. That or I'm just hungry. And no, I haven't touched anything that I baked. I get tired of seeing and smelling everything. So what are you all busy doing?
