Today was my annual Christmas Candy making marathon. I didn't quite get it all done today, so tomorrow I'll finish up. I also had a couple girlfriends over and showed them how to make a Magic Quilt picture. While I supervised their crafting, I made my candy. It was a very busy fulfilling day.

Vicki: Sounds like such a fun a day at Jannas! :)


I totally understand what you mean about no time to be sick without the whole family being out of the scheme of things. When I am just tired and not my chipper self, my teenage sons become forgetful and slothful. When I am up and about, near them or not, they are productive and attentive. Ugh. Nevertheless, we get it done, even if we have to play catch up often.
