Happy December!

Just a quick post while I'm waiting for mincemeat pies to finish baking ~ so it's 12:30 in the morning!  Doesn't everyone bake at this time?


I'm up late baking up a storm ~ to thank some community members for reading with the students - tomorrow at coffee break.     I have baked a cake, ginger cookies, shortbread fruit tarts, lemon squares, and am just finishing up with the mincemeat tarts in the oven.


Last Sunday I put the new flooring down in the bathroom, and I'm pleased with it.  I just have new baseboards to attach and then a bit of shining and polishing!


It's amazing to think it's December already.  I have a turkey ordered from the farm for Christmas and I guess soon I'll be putting up the tree.  

The weather has cleared up nicely, however it is chilly.  Smells just like winter!  It's nice to have a break from the rain.  

So that's my little post, and I'm off to dreamland accompanied by yummy smells permeating the household!

    Needless to say a hot mince pie would go down very well with my cup of tea! Flighty xx

  2. Glo, you never cease to amaze me with your one-woman-bakeshop act. Hope it all went well and was well received.

    And, yes, roomie and I would LOVE to have your help on our Minou story. We're planning a 20 page book with heaps of photos and maybe a story poem to run throughout. What would help you?

  3. Hi Flighty ~ I'm often up at midnight, although I do try to get to bed earlier...but once I'm in bed, I know that when I get up, it's off to work time! The evenings and nights are all mine :) to bake, to blog, to read.... Yes, I know it's getting close to Christmas when I taste my first mince tart, sprinkled with icing sugar, because I breathe it in, and start coughing as the icing sugar tickles my throat as it is breathed in! Ahhh....

    Nikki ~ Well, I do go 'beyond the scope of the assignment' especially when it's my own idea ~ but it was fun and all appreciated. I meant to take a photo, but by the time I had it all set out on the table, it was time for the hoard to arrive, so I completely forgot. I decorated the cake to look like a book so they liked that.

    On to Minou ~ if you could send me 'the story' or some ideas from the photos you'd like me to incorporate into a poem, that would be good. Flighty has my email address and I think you have his, so perhaps you can ask him to give my address to you, unless it is available from my comments on your blog. Thanks :)
