I don't know if it is the snow we got this week, the nip in the air, or feeling like I am finally starting to make a dent in the decluttering (a small dent is better than no dent!), but I am feeling buoyant about the upcoming holidays. Our house is tiny and cluttered but for some reason, it decorates well for Christmas. This year I am hoping to do less decorating and more celebrating as we expect the arrival of our new grandson in November.
What do you do to prepare for your holidays? The prep for me includes two main themes: The decorating of the house on the day after Thanksgiving (that way we get to stretch the holidays out as long as we can) and GINGERBREAD!!!
There are gingerbread houses to be decorated, gingerbread people to make, and ginger waffles to prepare. I love the scent, the taste, the everything about ginger! I'm not sure who discovered this wonderful spice but to me, it is ranks higher than chocolate in the wintertime. Perhaps this year, I will go through my stack of recipes that feature this wonderful spice :)
In the meantime, I am dreaming of a white Christmas and getting out the holiday music. Have a safe and restful Sunday!
