gifts, etc

So!  Due to poor planning and poor decision-making skills, I have scrapped half of my original plans for Christmas presents and have been coming up with new ideas all week.  Yes, I realize that Christmas is exactly a week from today.  I have 5.5 gifts completely finished, which leaves a mere 5.5 to complete.  Actually, I have 6.75 finished – so 4.25 to go.  I forgot about one.  So yeah – can totally finish 4.25 gifts in 3-4 days.  Then Tuesday I’ll devote to cleaning the house and baking, so that I can (I hope) take it easy on Wednesday until I have to start traveling.

The Reeves are doing a cookie exchange this year, which is new.  I usually do bake cookies around Christmastime, so will probably do rugelach and something else.  Or maybe just rugelach.  Everyone always seems to like that stuff, and they’re fun to make.  Rugelach and linzertorte (for Christmas dinner, and probably will take one to Jeff and Tammy’s)…and maybe a chocolate babka.  That one I made a few years ago was SO GOOD.  Hm.  Will probably depend on whether I get all the gifts finished (and wrapped) by Monday.

Anyway.  I guess I’m blogging because I can’t actually make anything right now.  Hmph.  I’m looking forward to being able to blog about the cool gifts I’m making this year……..
