In September we decided it was time to do some improvements to our kitchen. A new sink, garbage disposal, and faucet were needed. Now that means you must tear out the counter tops, all the plumbing under the sink. Also the counter tops where the stove top have to go as well so everything matches, and the stove top which while old still works great goes too. It was bound to quit as soon as a new counter top was installed and we all know then the cut out would not have matched, such is life. Well, with all the shipping problems these days they did not start until December 1st. A promise to be done by Christmas, nay, we all know contractors lie.
Each one of my grandchildren have Christmas socks. All somewhat match with really nice appliqués on them. Every year my son in law jokingly asks where his sock is. Now we celebrate Hanukkah with them and they Christmas with us. So I decided to make him a double sided sock. The one side with a winter themed Christmas fabric and the lower with Hanukkah fabric.
With all the construction going on in the kitchen one would think baking cookies was a silly idea, but somehow it just doesn't feel much like Christmas without a batch or two of cookies. We have plywood for countertops and the oven works so why not.
