This is last years photo of the cabin but it looks the same this year. I spent most of Friday and Saturday outside decorating. Since Thanksgiving was later in the year and thus giving us just three weeks before Christmas, well I am not putting out as much stuff. Because number one, if I put it out then I have to put it away.
Yesterday, I decorated a little upstairs but alas Christmas will only be had in four rooms this year. I may not put out any of the cloth decorations but stick with the glass and rock.
I also made the first batch of fruit cakes. It was after eleven when they got done last night. I will make one more batch which will give me 12 cakes to either give away or stick into the freezer. Mimi is famous for her fruitcakes but this year she was the supervisor only. Oh, she did prepare the pans for me. After, Prince started to help me stir, he indicated it was so much work, he would be hard pressed to give any away. I try not to give them to folks who do not appreciate them.
My friend Cat's husband Frank refers to it as THE FRUIT CAKE. Also, my friend Rick has asked to remain on the fruit cake list as I was telling Pammie Pooh that those who did not appreciate them got marked off my list.
The Kitty Justice is I like to give homemade gifts because I am giving them a little of the ole kitty and besides anyone can go out and buy something. But a hand or home made gift is precious as it comes from some one's most precious commodity, their TIME.
