I haven't made out the first Christmas Card yet!
I did bake 2 kinds of cookies yesterday, Chocolate Chip and 9 Layer cookies! LOL !!
Talk about being slow, this is the worst I've ever been! I just can't seem to get into the holidays' this year. I don't seem to have much spirit for some reason. I think a lot of it is missing mom and not having any other family or friends near to share the holidays with. It's really hitting me hard this year. I think that is the main reason I haven't been posting too much on here right now.
I will get myself back on the right track! I promise, I have a lot of ideas for all 3 blogs so I've got to get the lead out and get busy....right after the holidays.
Today I was digging around in the walk-in where I keep all of my sewing stash and brought out all of my patterns. BIG MISTAKE!!!! I was wanting to make some new clothes for me and for Kevin...well ... all of MY patterns seem to be a lot smaller in size than I am!!! I didn't know patterns could change size like that sitting in a closet !! LOL.
Well,,,,I know I'm not fooling any of you all, the patterns didn't shrink, I expanded (a lot more than I had thought)!! I knew I had gained weight but WOW I didn't think I had gotten that much bigger!!
I think it is time to do some serious changing of eating and exercise habits and soon!! Kevin and I both need to lose a lot of weight so I need to sit down and work with my diabetic diet plan (no I haven't been following it at all) :>( I know, I'm bad ! I'm glad I didn't do a whole lot of baking. I froze almost all of the chocolate chip cookies and just left the "9 Layer Cookies" out because they don't freeze well.
I had advertised my 12qt. canner for sale on the local radio bargain barn. I didn't think it was going to sell because it had been 2 weeks and on the last day it was listed I got a call. The lady came and picked it up last night. I hated to sell it but we have an electric stove (a furnished, cheap one!) in the apartment and the weight of the canner with just water in it was too much weight for the burner. The canner was sitting right on the stove top and scorched the top of the stove. I was able to get it clean thankfully! I wouldn't have been able to lift it full of jars with my back the way it is. I would love to have a gas stove again!!! I hate electric!!
I still have my small pressure cooker/canner that will do 4 pints at a time. I need to get a new pressure valve and gasket for it and it will be ready to use. My Christmas present to myself!! I want to be able to can up our left overs instead of freezing them. I also dehydrate a lot of things too.
Tomorrow and the next few days will be spent behind the sewing machine so I can get Kevin's things finished for Christmas. I may not be here much the next couple of days except to check -in.
I have a sale going on at the store blog for a limited time!
I believe this is starting to turn into a book so I had better end this soon.
I have enjoyed reading all of your wonderful blogs and your comment on my posts, thank you, and about your plans for Christmas.
Have a good night and God Bless all of you,
Blessings and Joy,
