Tuesday, December 11

There's too much to do, and not enough time.

And if I'm not careful, then soon I'll write to a friend and receive a note from her mother saying 'She got married and moved out, but you can reach her at _____________,_____________.'
Well, at least I have a few more years 'til that happens (Thank goodness!).

We have been fairly busy lately. Toby has been setting traps hither and thither, I have been delivering banana bread and pumpkin roll to all the neighbors, and Mom has been trying to make the house look nice for those times when people come unexpectedly.

We finally got presents and cards out, a large and debatably fun task, and we are successfully doing a Jesse Tree with our little tree (something we have never done).
Well, I'm going to go take a shower and find out how ornery my discman wants to be. Thank you for reading!


  1. And what is a "Jesse Tree" Lynae? I have to tell you that I really enjoy reading the blog. At least I am able to keep up with what all of you are doing in the frozen northland ! ! MERRY CHRISTMAS ! ! ! Love, Aunt Marion

  2. A Jesse Tree is a lot like an advent project. However, you decorate it with a special ornament every day during December for 25 days. The ornaments are each important, as they each represent something from the Bible. For example: the tree with fruit represents the first sin, and the rainbow represents the promise God made with Noah.
    Merry Christmas!
    P.S We got your card.

  3. Lynnae, do you use the pumpkin roll recipe from Miss Shelley on the board? I do, and it's always a big hit around the holidays.

    Hope you are happy and well!

    Miss Julie
