What are yours?
MH will be cooking a spiral ham for the two of us. He balked a little at the idea this year because they are generally pretty big and we do end up throwing some of it out...even though it is the only meat I'll eat three days in a row...and only because of the nice sauce I make...so eating the ham seems like dessert too :) So, this Jewish American Princess was adamant about getting her Christmas spiral ham...so it is written...so it shall be done. I think he should invite his Mother...I made the suggestion anyway...send her home with leftovers :)
How are you doing with your shopping and wrapping?
I only have a few gifts to buy. I bought one for MH and as soon as I remember to pick up wrapping paper, I'll wrap it and probably something else too. I tend to wrap my presents as I get them and put them under the tree. I'm also looking for an introduction to opera tape for my girlfriend who has suddenly become quite a Freddy Mercury fan...and he studied opera...and she's kinda getting into opera now too. So who better than Puccini? Or maybe just the best highlights of some of the famous operas.
I also bought a nice new comforter with matching shams and 3 matching pillows. And I sprung for new sheets. The sheets suck. They are Percale 400 count...Egyptian cotton, but apparently there really IS something to the word 'crisp' in the description of the sheets on the package. Even after being washed they are still crisp...I hate crisp...in a sheet! I like soft. I mean, what's the deal with crispy sheets anyway...stiff and noisy is what the description SHOULD say. And now because I've washed them, I can't return them.
We'll have a quiet peaceful day.
So, what are your plans are how are they coming along?
