Gift Giving Preparation Goes Into High Gear

Yes, it’s December.

Let’s just let that sink in for a second before we move on.


Ok, so it’s December. And if that’s not enough, I’ve counted backwards and realized that I have to mail my out-of-town boxes A WEEK FROM TODAY if I want to pay ground rates. Technically I could do it a week from tomorrow, but I’m booked that day so a week from today it is. Which isn’t too bad, except that I have almost a DOZEN boxes to mail out to friends all over the globe, many of which said boxes will be carrying some sort of/several home-baked goods, homemade jam, that sort of thing.

Which means I gotta get moving.

I’ve been baking for the past two weeks, but still have miles to go. I’ve been canning jams, mixing up lotions and hot cocoa mixes and more, and am SLOWLY getting it all done.

Just in time to be handing out gifts for teachers, friends, crossing guards . . .

Deep breathing. Deep breathing.
