Two Days Before Christmas

Yesterday was my big baking day-I still have to roll out and bake gluten-free pepparkakors today, but I've gotten the Chex Mix done. snicker doodles baked, a batch of chocolate-oat no-bakes made up, and I even had time to crank out a sun bread for the solstice yesterday.

I haven't actually knit much the last couple of days-Monday afternoon, after having a bit of a holiday freak-out, I decided to try and have Drift done for New Year's instead of Christmas, and boy, is that ever a weight off my shoulders. Honestly, I don't even know if it will be done by then, but it will be finished whenever the time is right for it, and I really just needed a break this week.

So, in the next two days I need to get the gluten-free pepparkakors finished (I need to find my cookie cutters-the regular pepparkakors are traditional hearts, but I do my gluten-free ones as moose so I don't get them mixed up), and I need to make sure I have everything for dinner on Friday (we're having mac & cheese-usually it's lasagna, but we're saving that for when extended family visits on Sunday), I need to finish my last gift (the struggle is real), and I need to do all of my wrapping.

I hope you all are having a wonderful week, and enjoying these last few days of the year, and I will see you all next week to reveal all of my gift knits!


  1. Good luck with it all! The cookies and other treats sound really tasty. Don't forget to give yourself a break now and then - not just letting go of a self-imposed deadline (although that helps so much, I totally understand!), but actual down time!

    Merry Christmas!

  2. Eep good luck with getting everything done! You've done well with the baking anyway - I have no idea what snicker doodles are but if it's anything to do with actual Snickers, I want a piece of that!

  3. Mele Kalikimaka to you! I got into the rhythm of baking and would bake all day today if I could but I have a 13.6 lb turkey that needs to be prepped soon for the ohana coming over this afternoon.
