Good morning!

  • do my usual tidying up, vacuum main floor, make sure the bathrooms are clean, gather up any laundry
  • outside/barn chores - need to top off the big water tank but I left the hose outside and it is now frozen solid (oops), so have to bring it in and let it thaw out first
  • finish up wrapping presents
  • order a gift card for one kid
  • write back to an Etsy seller about my order, which was apparently lost by the USPS
  • go out to lunch - kids want to go to Red Robin
  • pick up a new manure fork at farm supply store
  • stop at Natural Grocers to get produce and snacky stuff for Christmas
  • dinner: veggie burgers & oven fries
  • watch a movie tonight

We've been to church and had lunch. 

I'm halfway through making mushroom casseroles. 

After that some pumpkin bread and icing for the gingerbread cookies.

Then prepping the salad for tomorrow. 

A library run sometime before 4:30.

Dinner is tbd. Nothing that takes much work! Possibly take-out.

Cookies iced.

Pumpkin bread in the oven.

Reset the table. 

Kitchen/table linens washed and in the dryer.

Called a friend.

Sent dh and dd out to pick up ds from a friend's house and dinner from Pei Wei. Wish they'd get home soon. I'm hungry!

Tonight: Watch the end of LOTR with kids, read Christmas books. 

Write out a list for tomorrow, which will be a crazy busy day!
