- Christmas Eve day

The patch will come later, but it's been a busy day, so it's all good.

It started with an apt horoscope for our mutual Gemini birthdays (we were born two years and one day apart) ...

It's no coincidence that I finally added a "Collaboration" heading to the blog Index today!

After breakfast, I baked cookies ...


recipes for which can be found here

Somehow Don talked me into completing  our beach picture printing project ...



while he worked on creating bead board backing (more on that when they're complete). All of which was way more fun than packing (which we still haven't done).

I added another week to the Land of Flood and Drought - 2016, which is now 51 inches long and one week from completion ...


and as night-time fell, the Ackert family tradition of Christmas Eve pajamas from Santa continued, causing much excitement ...


which abated, enabling a more focused shot ...


Now for a good night's sleep ...
