We are on week eight of Twelve Weeks of a Simple Christmas. It’s never too late to jump in!
This week is simple. It’s about cookies and cards.
If you’re sending Christmas cards, here’s what you do:
Gather all the Christmas cards leftover from years past–the packages that come with 20 but you only use 17, the freebies in the mail, that one card you had to buy but never sent. Gather them all in one place.
Grab the cards you ordered last week.
Put them in a pretty basket or an ugly Walmart bag–whatever! Add your address book (unless that’s your cell phone), stamps, and some pens…because you will lose a couple.
Address a few each day or night. Of course, you can’t mail them until after Thanksgiving–it’s tradition! I always envied whoever was organized enough to have sent the first card that arrived in our mailbox every year. Maybe this year that will be you!
Eat a cookie.
Try to get them all out by December 11—two weeks before Christmas.
If you don’t do cards, you can skip to here. Try to get another batch of cookie dough in the freezer before all the Christmas hullabaloo starts next weekend, or just focus on Thanksgiving baking.
How are you doing?
