This past week & weekend saw me perfecting my latest creation of egg salad sandwiches. Instead of mayo I am using Renee's Cesar Salad Dressing, a squirt of mustard with horseradish, a bit of green relish & chopped with 2 hard boiled eggs. I have been using marble rye bread, lightly toasted with lettuce - yummy / we had our first snow fall late Saturday night, pretty but most thankful I was home rather than driving. Even though we get snow every year & lots of it, people forget how to drive in it / Santa letters written to moans of "oh do we have to"; seems I'm soon becoming the only believer / Christmas cards have been written & addressed, just ready for December 1st posting /hauled out ALL of my Christmas scrapping stuff - no I don't need another thing; oh I want more, saw several pads of really nice Christmas paper at Michaels, on sale too, 40% off - a deal / a little time spent in the garden trying to find the colour, it was mostly in the sunsets, so the day ending was giving me a few glorious pink sunsets to be grateful for / tried to convince my two fur girls that wearing a Santa collar would be fun - 1st attempts at Santa photos did not go as planned or well / Mr Man has been away travelling a lot for work through the last few weeks, so nice to have him home for the weekends / throughout my work week I have been writing up procedures for selling & using gift cards at the physio clinic, we have 2 RMTs & during the holidays we prompt massage as a gift / now to train the other two ladies on front desk how to use the correct codes & steps

/ Stir Up Sunday, the 22nd, was a lot of fun for myself & Mr Man enjoyed all the bowls & spatulas that needed licking / using my favourite recipes, Christmas cake & treats all baked & in the freezer awaiting gifting / while things were in between being baked, I sorted through my gifting tins - Whoa there were quite a few, another thing I don't need any more of - fill & give is the kitchen motto for Christmas / for scrapping Christmas; Take This (ie empty tins, gift bags) & Turn It Into This; (ie filled bags & tins) / I could also do this with all my Christmas linens - a photo of them in the cupboard & then photos of them on the tables ... yeah I think I've found myself a theme! /finished watching an introduction TV special on Canada's new Defense Minister; I was suitably impressed.
Well Monday, let's do this dance again.
