And speaking of a mess, Sunday was "Marshmallow Day"......... well at least here in this house. The making of the marshmallows doesn't take that long really. And the recipe is simple (find the link in this post). There's just some lengthy waiting for them to set up, so I usually let them sit overnight and get a fresh start in the morning. So I guess you could say that it's a two-day job.
Anyway, I made a large batch each of the vanilla and the cinnamon and have divvied them up for distribution to Physical Therapy, my spine doctor's office, and for school. There happily is a little to spare for home. This is working out quite nicely since there is no bending involved in making these and I'm not on my feet that long either. I'll be making half batches of each tomorrow for some more gifts that I need for some dear friends.
Well, the tree is almost complete....... waiting for HWNSNBP to finish up with the bigger ornaments on the bottom. And once that's done I have another little decorating project to tackle this year which I hope to share soon. He keeps telling me that he wants everything to be done by Sunday night so we can sit down and enjoy it for a few days before Christmas and just maybe that might happen this year.
Speaking of Sunday night, they're advertising the Sing-a-Long Sound of Music to air then. Believe it or not, I actually went to a live, in the theater Sound of Music Sing-A-Long with my good friend JT and it was a lot of fun. Truth be known, I usually do sing-a-long even when the words aren't on the screen at home. We just won't have the props that they had in the theater.
If you're in the neighborhood and want to sing-a-long with me, I'll be here and there'll be marshmallows......... just sayin'.
