Day 7 A Wreath and a Red Bow

Well it is supposed to be a wreath with a red bow but instead I've given you one of each!

December 5

I skipped the December 4 post, and I have a good reason.  There are no wrapped packages under our tree....yet.  Shopping is coming along nicely but the wrapping and mailing part will have to wait a bit.  But I did make somethings tasty.  Caramel Corn and Reindeer Food are all bagged and ready for some little thank you gifts.

The Reindeer Food is my variation of this recipe but using the red, green and white candy corn and Christmas sprinkles.  Very tasty!  

PS  I took this photo on my phone and tried to post using the Blogger app on my Iphone.  This just might be the answer to trying to blog more.  First attempt failed but I think it just might work!  Does anyone else use the Blogger mobile app? Any suggestions are welcome.

December 3

Today's photo is supposed to be of our Christmas tree.  Since our tree this year is still a work in progress, I'm using a photo of  the top of our tree last year. (It's actually the same artificial tree  and will be decorated pretty much the same). Now I just need to  make the bow for the top to finish it up.

Happy December 3 !

Number 2 on the List

Day 2  - A list

Love my iphone, but I need to utilize it more.  I do use the Notes app quite a bit, but need to remember to delete some of the notes once I've completed them.   This the list I started for today.  There's another list on here too, but showing my Christmas shopping list would ruin the surprise for some!

Have a wonderful December day!

December 1 and a List

Wow, it's December 1 ! There's not much more than an hour left of today but maybe I can still get this post in on time!  I'm going to TRY to participate in this fun photo challenge that some of my bloggy friends have brought to my attention.  Susan at This Day has the details on her blog but here is my entry for today - Something Red.

This is a quilt I made several years ago and one of my favorites.  This photo is old and taken before it was bound.  I should have pulled my camera out to get a new shot, but no, I took on the challenge of "digging" deep into my photo files to find this one.  ( A new photo might have been easier!)

Here's the list if any one else wants to join in!
  1. Something Red
  2. A List
  3. The Christmas Tree
  4. Presents Wrapped Under the Tree
