I've decorated the tree, with pretty much the same stuff as last year. I have to work on a new ornament or two. Last year I made a whole bunch of hard candy ornaments out of glass, and some holly leaves and berries on copper wire, but they are rather small and don't show up well. I was thinking of a few gingerbread men out of polymer clay. Maybe a sugar cookie or two as well. Oh, and I forgot to hang the candy canes. The cat is chewing on a branch. I can hear the little bells I hung up so I know she's busted. Hopefully she won't try to climb the tree (again.) She likes to hang on a branch like a fat, fuzzy ornament. It's adorable but does trash the tree. I have to remember to unplug the tree tonight so she doesn't electrocute herself while I'm at work tomorrow.
Time to get cracking on some baking any day now. I've got some kind of a bug so today isn't a good day to start, but soon. People love to make fun of fruitcake but it does go a long way.
