Twas the Sunday before Christmas and....

This puppy is beat!
Spent Friday shopping. I hate to shop.... (unless it's the LNS or online). Friday night i made 6 eggs worth of egg noodles and simmered a couple of chickens for homemade chicken noodle soup. Saturday I chopped all the veggies for veggie soup and the chicken noodle soup. Made 36 quarts of veggie soup. 6 loaves of cranberry orange bread. Today I made 36 quarts of chicken noodle soup. Another 6 eggs worth of egg noodles. The freezer and fridge are full. The kitchen is almost put back together. My feet, ankles and legs are killing me. I still need to scrub my kitchen floor but I think it will wait till tomorrow evening. I'm giving gifts of food to my boss and friends this year. Not as much as I did last year, but I think they will all enjoy the Veggi soup, Chicken noodle soup, homemade dinner rolls and Cranberry Orange bread. I **might** make oreo cookie truffles or buckeyes Tuesday evening, but will wait and see what time I get home from work and what kind of mood I'm in then! I will ship the grandkids goodies out tomorrow along with my Quaker Friendship round robin.

I took a break this afternoon and stitched this freebie from Sharon/Daffycat. I don't have a photo as DH is using my camera. But it was a cute quick stitch! thanks Sharon! I see many more of these in my future!

I think I had a productive weekend. Nothing like waiting till the last minute!
Thanks for all the kinds words from my last post.
I wish you all a very merry Christmas Holiday. Bless you all!
Stay safe! Happy Stitching!

OMG, woman, you have been busy. Everything sounds good. You are one of the first other than myself that I know that makes homemade noodles. That is lots of work.

You deserve some time off to stitch.

Been meaning to e-mail you. I got my little snowman in the mail on Thursday. It is so awesome. Taking him to show off at my stitch group on Monday night.

Merry Christmas!!!!!!!!!!

Wow,homemade noodles! You're the first I know who makes those and definitely much more ambitious than I am! I also have been very behind in my Christmas preparations. Finally got the tree up this past week and I'm just doing some baking now. Stitching?...forget it, no time right now but thanks for the link to the reindeer freebie. I love deer.
Hope you and yours have a very Merry Christmas Martha. That granddaughter of yours is a real cutie!

Hi, Martha! Merry Christmas to you and yours. I've had two surgeries in the past 7 weeks, and am recouping well. Sorry to have missed my ANG and EGA meetings. Hopefully, 2009 will be a good year for all of us! Have a wonderful time this week!
Hugs, Deb

Ooo, please come cook at my house!

LOL I could spend all day long at the LNS but put me in another store and I am pulling hair and supremely grouchy in minutes!

The soups sound delicious. I plan on making ham and bean soup tomorrow with the leftover Christmas ham. But no homemade noodles for this gal. We're lucky we got Christmas cookies made this year!
