    My aunt ordered a pointsetta from dd school fundraiser, I tried to give it to her but dd was sad so my aunt gave it backto her LOL now I have a lovely pointsetta for my holiday decorations. My mom also gave me a handful of Pokemon cards for DS's stocking.

    I got some packets of "true lemon" to include with my tea wreaths

    My Christmas cactus is in full bloom, as well. I like the fake poinsettia idea. I love the plants, but I hate that they die so quickly, and I am NOT dedicated enough to nurture them into blooming the next year!

    I worked on a bag for the back of my mom's power chair. She supplied the materials, but the labor is on me. I thought I had messed it up beyond redemption but today figured out how to salvage it and make it look nice, too. I told her I had messed it up and couldn't make it, so now if I can get it done I'll give her a Christmas surprise.

    I found out I will not be called in for jury duty this week, but maybe next week. I better get all my Christmas gifts ready to go in case I'm not home next week.

    I bought the last of goodies for Christmas and the rest of Christmas baking today. I will bake either tomorrow or Wednesday.

    I also dug out the two gifts that were at the very back under the tree...had to move a ton to get to them so I can bring them with me when I pick up my Ds from school...they are for my nephews.

    In preparation for the painting of the bedrooms this week (plan is to commence decorating on Friday) I'm going to start to de-clutter the spare bedroom tonight and wash the damp wall.

    Just got to make some flapjacks and dinner first...

    I got the cards done and mailed today. All the presents are wrapped and shipped. UMMM a tree and decorations are still needed. I'll do all the baking next Wed unless the bug hits sooner.

    Flew up to NC on Friday to spend Sat-Mon with my dd, dsil and their children. Got all of their Christmas bought and left with them for the Grandkids. When I got back today, I ordered an enameled cast iron dutch oven for my dd and her dh. So all I now need to get is a leaf blower for my dh. Shopping is done.

    Finished a bunch of baking again today. Only need to make some brownies, a cake and pies.. that's nothing.

    I also picked up Dh and DFIL's laptops and Dh picked up mine...which I am using right now!

    Bought a gift for my best friend today. Looked around for presents for my BIL and nephew, but struck out.
