What a week! DH got sick last Thursday, and I have been a nurse all week.
Today we again went to the doc, and the news was good. The tests came back, and it is an infection, and he should be better in a few days. I will have to fatten him up, he has lost about 6 lbs, so I will be baking him something good this week!
Some individual apple crisps are on the menu, I already peeled the apples. A big scoop of ice cream will help.
Needless to say, Clara Barton didn’t get to do a table.
Here’s to all the nurses out there, you work hard!
Time to pull out this pretty Lenox Cake plate, a gift to myself a few years ago. I know I have shown this before.
I love how the bottom is shaped like a pumpkin.
These are shortbread cookies made in nut shaped molds. You fill them with chocolate or jam. Molds came from King Arthur.
They would be good piled on that pretty plate.
Or maybe this cornucopia pumpkin cake…
As TURKEY TIME draws near, I find myself leaping ahead to Christmas planning. After this week I realize how illness can throw schedules way out of whack, so I want to try and be prepared early!
SPEAKING OF PLANNING AHEAD, the DECEMBER CHALLENGE WILL BE DEC. 11.
FIND A PICTURE OF a Christmas , or a Hanukkah HOLIDAY TABLE AND TRY TO DUPLICATE IT. It can be from a magazine, book, or Pinterest or a blog. Be sure to give credit to where it came from.
Show us the original, and your version. I look forward to seeing what you come up with!
I didn’t do a challenge for Nov. I know everyone is doing Fall tables, so we will skip this month.
Hope things will settle down this week, lots to catch up on, and I sure hope dh will be well enough to go to the dump! I hate that job! :)
Have a wonderful November week, busy times ahead for everyone, it sneaks up quickly!
