Christmas in November?

I think Frosty's in danger of melting?

My posts have been sporadic this past week because I've had things on my mind. Little stresses. My mom hasn't been feeling well, but fortunately, my brother and sister-in-law in Kansas City rushed to her rescue, so that's a big relief. Everyone keeps asking me if I'm packed for our upcoming trip and the answer is no. I finally started thinking today about what we'll need. Passports, ponchos, flashlight, umbrella, jackets, flip flops, shorts, tank tops, swimsuits, binoculars, etc.... Hopefully by Thanksgiving Day, Craig and I will be strolling down that sunny beach in Bucerias, Mexico!

This seems like a sacrilege because it's not even Thanksgiving, but I've spent the last few days putting up Christmas decorations in the house. By the time we get back from Mexico and I make a possible trip to Kansas, I fear it could be a mad dash to Feliz Navidad. So I'm trying to do a few chores in advance so the Grinch doesn't steal Christmas this year. And no, I didn't put up the Christmas tree yet. That seemed too nuts!

The good thing is I won't be home on Thanksgiving Day to stare at the early Christmas decor with Michael and his guests. I think it's all males, so maybe they won't notice the substitution of Santa and Rudolph for pilgrims, leaves, and turkeys. Here's a sneak peak.

Hi Becky,
If you send me an address, I will send you a photo and taste report on your
"Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake" recipe. Finish the book yet?

Ann, I bet you'll enjoy having free time during the holidays! I've put a new seaglass book on my Christmas list that illustrates some seaglass crafts. Hope to pick up some on this trip!

drgeo, did you make the cake?!!! I finished the book and it was very sad to read. The tale of a dysfunctional family, mental illness, and a girl's struggle with psychic abilities. But I'm still hungry for the cake! I'll send you my email!
