Good Morning! I had a SUPER productive weekend. ALL the Christmas decorations are organized and put away and I’m ready to do some deep cleaning. It’s Monday morning so be sure to join in with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom for Happy Homemaker Monday. Go check it out to see what it’s all about!
I need some help!!! I need ideas for a bread an butter gift (a gesture of gratitude for hosting) for my SIL on an upcoming trip. I always look for something I know she’d like, but probably doesn’t have, but I’m honestly out of ideas. She loves “frogs” but think I’ve done those a little too much over the years. What do you get or make for someone who has everything or the money to buy what they want when they want it?
ON THE BREAKFAST MENU

NEW RECIPES TO TRY
I also tried several other successful new recipes in December and they will be popping up a little here and a little there over the next few weeks.
I’m back to trying recipes from my experimentation file this month so am hopeful that there will be many to pass on to you soon.
IN THE YARD & GARDEN
Nothing this week.
HOMEMAKING TIP OF THE WEEK
As I put up the Christmas decorations each year I save the tissue paper to reuse as stuffing in shipping boxes and then as I put away the Christmas decorations each year I use new tissue paper to wrap them in. The new tissue paper has a stronger tensile strength to protect the ornaments and decorations.
Trying to understand the world and what is going through people’s minds with all the senseless violence that is happening everywhere.
