I liked the temperature that showed up on our weather station yesterday! 64 degrees, in Colorado, in mid-December!
You are probably wondering why I'm including this in my festive things. It's because Christmas is happening at our house this weekend, and my kids have to drive home (about a 4 hour drive for each of them across the eastern plains of Colorado) so good weather is hoped and prayed for on both ends. Keep your fingers crossed it will stay this way. :) I keep telling everyone who is wishing for snow that it can snow on Dec 19 when my guys are back home again!
I liked finishing up this little wool stocking and hanging it on my Christmas tree last night!
A favorite thing about decorating the tree each year is looking through all the ornaments from all the years and enjoying the memories of where they came from or when they were made.
I used to do a lot of cross-stitch, and these were made for my kids when they weren't very old.
I like finding old Christmas cards, and cutting them up to use for bookmarks!
Yes, I read another Debbie Macomber holiday romance this week!
What's not to like about a sweet little book you can read in a day?! :)
I like this rope bowl made by a friend in my quilt group. Have you tried making one of these yet? I haven't, but I'm kind of interested to try.
I like trying a new recipe now and then! I've been curious about desserts in a mug recently, so I tried this one. It's called "The 'One' Chocolate Mug Cake."
I have to say that is just okay. It is definitely simple to make, fills the desire for something sweet without making too much or a big mess, but it's a bit dry. It really needed a scoop of vanilla ice cream to melt into it!
Here's a link to the recipe if you're curious about it. Have you tried any of these? I saw a "Cinnamon Roll in a Mug" recipe the other day that I might try next. I would love to know if you've had success with something similar!
Time for me to get busy on preparations for our family weekend, but first I'll enjoy finding out what everyone else liked this week over at Not Afraid of Color!
