It has been a very busy weekend...
BF did a whole bunch of outside/garage work. Started Friday night with putting a hall tree together then installing a couple of tire racks, installing a blackboard for recording car stuff like oil changes, moving the car trailer around so it can more easily be used for storage for the winter, got some phragmites stalks bundled together for wild bee nesting habitat, I'm not sure what else he did.
I made about 100 dozen cookies for my Christmas baking, 6 batches of pastry, made up mincemeat rolls and got them in the freezer, with my Dad's help, cleaned the house a little bit and made a prime rib roast dinner. And all of the associated clean-up. I think I'm on the 4th dishwasher load since Friday night. And I did 4 loads of laundry, which is all folded and put away.
(The cookies: About 13 dozen shortbread, about 8 dozen pecan balls, about 8 dozen almond crescents, about 17 dozen gingerbread, yet to be decorated, about 8 dozen cranberry white chocolate shortbread bars and about 12 dozen whipped shortbread.)
Tomorrow, I take my Dad home and then come back and try to finish up my Christmas cards and get my Christmas decorating started.
