Home and Garden Thursday

They say timing and location are everything. Well, I suppose I should be thankful for timing. I have been working for several days preparing the house, food and gifts for our annual Christmas party. I’d hoped to share with you wonderful pictures…however, the day after the party I developed a pretty good head cold. Dearest and our daughter had been battling colds for a couple weeks and I thought I was in the clear! The first few days were tough, I’m back to work doing the best I can, so later this week I’ll put together the posts I’d wanted to share earlier. That’s just part of life, isn’t it! I hope you’re doing well in your corner of the world…there are many who are experiencing severe winter weather. I hope you all are safe and warm.

Here’s what I did share with you since our last party:

Christmas Cookies-1I shared with you three cookie recipes we prepared for our Christmas party. I think my daughter has found the perfect Sugar Cookie recipe!

Here are the Top Viewed Posts from last week’s party:

  19. Thank you, Linda. I know this cold is on its way out. I told my husband this morning that there’s no stage to this cold that I like. I hope this is it for me for the winter. I’m trying not to be a wimp – my husband and children all have allergies and deal with congestion throughout the year – I can take a week or two can’t I. Sniff, sniff.
