It's Christmas Time...

As we speak, a cinnamon spice cake is cooling on top of our stove and the smell is making me crazy! I was working on a ginger bread house, but while it was "setting" the dog decided the icing mortar needed some work, so it had to be trashed. He never gets on the table. But I guess that icing was just too tempting.

The cake is for our office party tomorrow, so I won't get to eat it all by myself. But that's a good thing... For my diet.

I've put aside the wip temporarily to deal with the idea in my head. There's some issues I want to work out with the plot of the wip and I plan to work on that too, so I'm not putting it aside completely. And I'm not a habitual putter-asider, so hopefully I'm not starting a trend. But the other story is calling calling calling, and I can't ignore it any more.

Christmas shopping is ALMOST done. Woo Hoo!!

We decorate each year. I love Christmas decorating. But there's a limit to how much decorating I'll do. Last year a friend shared this with me and although I posted it last year, I thought I should share it again. It definately goes beyond my limit!

Anyone know someone who decorates like that?

Wouldn't it be awful to live next to those people? I bet their neighbors hate them.

Enjoy your cake!! (Personally, that's why I'm making all the stuff I DON'T like first, saving the cookies to the last minute).

That was so obnoxious. I'm w/ Emma - I would hate to live next to these people.

My baking is going to start this weekend and into next week. I want some of it around at Christmas. If I do it too early I eat it all! LOL

Seriously, those are neighbors from hell.

I am not doing any baking this year. I refuse. But I'll certainly partake in goodies others bake and share!

Good luck with the idea in your head! Gotta love those!

I imagine the waitressing was stressful! Where did you work?
