Happy Holidays

Good morning everybody. I can't believe it has been over a month since I last posted. Not much to catch up on here. I've been cooking/baking a lot and enjoying every minute of it. Busy making candy and cookies. Made my first batch of peanut butter fudge and it is so yummy. One fav I haven't made in a very long time is Martha Washington Balls. Sooo good. All this candy and cookie and cake baking just takes me back to when my kids were young and we used to do this every year.

I received my seed orders and looking forward to a beautiful spring. I have put down lots of seeds this fall and many are coming up already. I'm hoping for some beautiful breadseed poppies. Catherine blessed me with these poppy seeds a couple years ago and they have been passed on to many of you and I still have plenty. Seeds go on to live forever. I love that.

I bought myself a present - a Gateway laptop. Don't laugh but I don't know how to use it. I'll figure it out. Now I won't feel so bad blogging and posting while I am at home instead of at work.

I do have some things in bloom and I'll get my lazy carcus out and get some photos. Does anyone else just kinda forget about the gardens this time of year? I'm just not that into it right now but wait till January and all that changes.

Hope you have a great day.

PS thank you to all who have asked about me.

So glad to see you Becky. I just thought about you this morning and realized I hadn't seen you posting. I'm thinking of baking goodies too.

Enjoy your laptop. You'll have fun being able to post from home.

I, too, have been neglecting my garden a bit, getting ready for Christmas. Your baking sounds yummy! I try not to have those extra calories hanging around! ;) Congrats on the new laptop! You will have a blast using it.

Marydon said...

So glad to see you Becca. You worried me, been too long. Love the 'puter. I wouldn't know how to do anything with it except plug it in. At least you are up to the challenge of 'figuring it out'.

Merry Christmas

Happy Holidays, Becca!!

Daisy said...

Baking brings back memories for me too, both that I did when my kids were little and that my Mom did when I was little. Have fun learning how to use your new computer! :-)

Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

Don't you love that seeds go on and on like that? I got those seeds years ago from a woman on Garden Web from Oklahoma. I wonder how many states they are in now?
All that baking sounds fun! I'm not doing as much this year, but my sister is going to come over in a few days and make rocky road fudge with me.

You will like that laptop! Sounds like you are baking up a storm! :)

Lona said...

Good to hear from you in Blogville again.I do not do too much baking because I eat it if it is around. LOL!
Ewww, I love the new laptop girl.
Have a merry Christmas Becca!

Hi Becca,
You sure have been busy with all of your baking and decorating. Your tree looks beautiful!

I'm glad you were able to get a new computer. It took me awhile to get used to my place for moving the curser around, and Larry did bring me a mouse to use, but I finally got used to it, and do not use the mouse much. I can't see the spot on your computer where you navigate from, though. Mine is between the keyboard and the edge next to me.

Have a Merry Christmas!
