Suzi here is beautiful down under Australia where it is the first day of Summer, only no one seems to have told Mother Nature to turn on the heat yet! LOL.

I have bought cards but not written on them. I have baking supplies in for cooking gifts, now sure exactly what as yet. I have a few presents but really need to get a move on with more. I got a scare today when I ordered more books over the internet and at checkout a sign came up saying they might not get here in time! Yikes, was not prepared for that. LOL.

Well started is OK. I feel like going shopping today, but the idea of taking a 2year old with me is not something I want to do. That means being fast, and sticking close to public toilets, not always possible in little gift stores, oh and all those breakable items lol Think I will stay home after all. Rofl.

Maybe I will start my cards today. Now there is a plan. I wonder if it will happen. Lol. Not sure what the weather is doing. We used the pool three times last week and zero this week. That is no fun. At least the rain has stopped till tomorrow....if you believe what they say. Looking out the window there are tons of clouds.

You sure are organized. That kitchen aid mixer you bought sure is having a workout. Yum on the cookies. I need to make my baking list soon. Their are some neighbours that love sweet treats so I always try to make lots for them.

I got two more batches, one plain oatmeal & one blueberry craisin oatmeal done today. Put 4 dozen in the freezer and two dozen in the cookie jar. DH took half a dozen over to a friend of his and the granddaughter came by yesterday and took a small bag home with her. I'll probably do more in the next week or so since it's supposed to stay clear and chilly.

G'DAY! :smileyvery-happy:

For the first time ever we have the trees up and all the decorating we ever do done!

I have most gifts bought but not wrapped too!

This month is such a FULL month that I decided to get organized early!
