I didn't quite hit all my goals this weekend (I never managed to carve out an hour for reading) but I did start the weekend with a pot of Christmas tea.
There was lots of rolling and baking and eating of gingerbread dough. I managed to throw a bit of a wrench in the works by falling hard and spraining my wrist on Saturday. Then I successfully staved off the worst of the swelling by wrapping it tightly and using ice. Which would have been great if I hadn't fallen asleep with the ice pack on and given myself frostbite. Actual frostbite, with ugly blisters and everything. Consider yourselves lucky that I'm not sharing a picture.
Candy helps distract you from things like frostbite. Especially if you're using it to decorate gingerbread houses.
Tiny little dogs on your shoulder help too.
Joey is my sister's latest rescue dog. I don't know how she keeps finding stray animals.
