Mailing cards, shopping, gift wrapping, party going, cooking, baking, on and on and on...and then I like to add in reading, movie watching, and relaxing (ya, right.) But of course, I still have to do my regular day-to-day stuff, too, like writing, blogging, editing, marketing, etc....my, oh, my and I wonder where all my time goes.
It's no wonder I always feel so overwhelmed. I'm sure you all are relating- right?
Regardless, I try really hard to enjoy every moment, and I have my favorites that make this time of year special.
Cookie baking doesn't come easily for me. Being gluten free isn't my only obstacle. Sadly, I hate to bake. I don't like to cook either, but being gluten free has forced me to do both. And if I want Christmas cookies, then I must roll up my sleeves and bake. Amazingly, I was able to create some good tasting (and looking) cookies. They tasted and looked good enough that I shared with my gluten-free neighbor.
Grain-free/Gluten-free Sugar Cookie Cut-outs
Flour-less Peanut Butter Cookies
Grain-free/Gluten-free Snowballs (Walnut/Pecan Sandies)
(pretty good for someone who doesn't bake, huh?)
Every year, I have a bunch of Holiday movies I just have to watch. It doesn't feel like Christmas without them. Most of the time, I have the movie on in the background while I'm wrapping, baking, or finishing up the cards. However, some nights I stay up late on the couch to watch these movies.
One Magic Christmas (I think this is by far my favorite Christmas movie)
A Christmas Carol (with George C Scott)
Anything on Lifetime
I love the classic Holiday songs like Rudolf, Silent Night, Let it Snow, Jingle Bells, etc. I basically love them all. But I thought I share with you Train, Shake it Up Christmas
What are your favorite cookies, movie, and music?
Be safe and merry!
