Busy Weekend

Woohoo, almost done with the Christmas shopping. Daughter and I put up the Christmas tree and decorated today. Bob put up a train light sculpture ::sigh::. He came home with it this afternoon ('honey, it was half off at Lowe's'). It's very cute. I tried to take pictures of it but it's kinda blurred. We have Snoopy Santa on the roof and Winnie the Pooh Santa near our light post. Today I put wide red ribbon around the light post and affixed a big red bow. It's very cold outside (about 35 deg. and windy so the windchill was killing me) and my fingers were frozen. But it's sunny, so with all the extra energy I baked some mini-loaves of cranberry orange bread. House looks great inside and out and smells good too.

I was going to do Christmas cards last night but Bob wanted to go to the movies to see Walk the Line. We really enjoyed it.

So to recap:

Shopping - almost done (just want to get a couple more things)
Decorating - Done
Baking - Done
Wrapping - not started
Christmas cards - not started
Company Christmas Party - tonight at the Experience Music Project Science Fiction Museum, with catered buffet dinner and a band.
Reading - Currently reading Twilight. Not much time for reading this weekend

Try this: take discarded orange peels, a dash of vanilla extract, a cinnamon stick and a few cloves and put them in a pot of water. Simmer on low on the stove all day for wonderful aroma therapy and a little extra humidification.
