Happy Holidays!

A Christmas checklist:

1) 2 Butterscotch pies - check!
2) 2 Caramel apple pies - check!
3) Last minute trip to the grocery store for more eggs and bread - check! (Plus, all the cash registers were open and there were no line ups - a Christmas miracle!)
4) Gifts wrapped - check! (Is it just me or is wrapping paper thinner than ever? It tears soooo easily!)
5) Now, a quick trip up to the garden to tighten up the mini hoop tunnels after the last three days of super windy and mild weather - again!

Have a wonderful holiday and all the best for 2011!


  1. Merry Christmas,Niki to you and yours.Thank you for the yummy treats.Found Kara in the kitchen making spoonfuls of Danny's treat disappear.Will have to hide it in a safe place. See you in the new year.

  2. Merry Christmas from our house and garden to yours. Hope Santa managed to unload his goodies surely including some "gardener's gifts".

  3. Thank you ladies! I hope you both had a Merry Christmas! 'Santa' brought me a lovely garden gnome - the traditional kind with a tall red hat.. 10 years ago, I would have deemed it extremely tacky.. but now that I've matured (aka mellowed!), I love it.. he'll be very welcome tucked between the beans or the tomatoes.. :)
