The crunch is ON! Less than TEN days until Christmas…WHERE has the time gone! We act like we don’t know that Christmas comes at the SAME time each year…Every time I make that statement, I am taken back to a co-worker who was NOT the brightest star in the sky, but was a kind, gentle soul who had LOTS of problems. I had gotten my brother a job working in our stockroom during the off-season and he was talking with this friend when the friend turned to my brother and said, “how many days does December have this year…31 or 32”…hmmmm…Christmas MIGHT come at the same time each year, BUT WHEN does NEW YEARS day happen this year!
THIS is one of my favorite things to give as a gift…BUT instead of making it, I buy a nice bowl and place the ingredients in it with the recipe and give THAT as my gift…THAT way the recipient can make it when they wish!
My other favorite gift to give this way is Apple Dip. Again, I put the ingredients in a bowl. IF you want to include the sugar in your gift, measure it out and put in a clear bag with a fancy tie!
You can ALWAYS buy some Whack and bake cookies and bake them and give them on a pretty hand-painted plate…include a handmade ornament too!!
Life does NOT have to be so complicated. My Mother had an older lady who once told her that at HER age, if she could NOT eat it, then she really didn’t NEED it…I have thought of that so often! I LOVE to give the gift of food! A basket filled with some of your friend’s favorite treats is always a hit! Be creative! ENJOY the journey of this Season…Blessings to YOU…~charlotte♥
Poor CHARLIE…I asked what was wrong…He said he was EXHAUSTED from looking at ALL the JUNK in this HOUSE…so MUCH…TOO MUCH….((((CHARLIE))))…These are all TREASURES! I told him….as he picked himself up and wandered on, I heard him mumble under his breath….hmmmphfff…Looks like JUNK to me….heavy sigh…
