Final Christmas preparations

Yesterday Brian decided our house didn't look festive enough, so he worked on adding more decorations. Apparently, Mr. Jack Frost thought the same thing, and added his delicate touch outside last night.

The final Christmas gift I have to deliver is blocking and drying as I type. I'm tied to the place today waiting for the UPS man to arrive (sometime between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. the recorded message said - sheesh!), so will probably deliver this and the skein of alpaca yarn tomorrow. Dear friends invited us to Christmas dinner at their place, so I will also assemble "Green & White Lasagne" (Brian's requested entree) and Rick's favorite Cranberry/Strawberry Jello Salad to contribute. Need to come up with something special for Christmas Eve supper, and make at least a couple recipes of holiday treats; I'm leaning towards Krumkake and Quick Toffee (the recipe with saltines). Might sneak some time in there somewhere to wind the longwool and cast on this hat, and start a new fiber on Louie II, too.

That's it for now at . . .

Well now I'm hungry! The green and white lasagne sounds great. Is it a secret recipe?

Michelle said...

No, Claire, no secret; I'll try to remember to post it when I have a chance.
