The 12 Days of Christmas…..Here’s a good list of things to do!
On the 12th day send out holiday and new year’s eve cards. Take the time to write something special on each recipients’ cards. One of my dearest friends hand designs her cards.
On the 11th day make a quick treat to have on hand for drop in guests. Roasted spiced almonds with sea salt are very tasty.
On the 10th day get your chef knife and other key knives sharpened for all your holiday cooking. Give your knives love too so they can love your back!
On the 9th day have a simple “go to” recipe for a delicious vegetable side dish that you can bring to any party or dinner gathering. Glazed carrots, parsnips, and or rutabagas are quick and easy.
On the 8th day get out the vases and fill them with flowers. Group different small sizes together and create a warm, festive environment. Grocery stores have great prices on roses, berries, and other flowers. Don’t forget to put one by your bedside.
On the 7th day shop for last minute Christmas gifts at your local small business owned boutiques for unique gifts. No lines or difficult parking.
On the 5th day plan your holiday menus, especially if you have family coming into town to stay. Don’t get caught up in the last minute grocery store frenzy!
On the 4th day plan your wardrobe for Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Of course the hostess has to look fabulous!
On the 3rd day do something for yourself! Take a coffee break alone at your favorite cafe’, get a massage, or go for a jog. Love your minutes!
On the 2nd day give love to those in need. Cook a full meal for a needy family or donate Winter clothing
Lastly… Just live and love!
