Getting Ready to Decorate!

Sorry I have been too quiet.  Before you know it, it will be Christmas!  As you can see in the picture, we found a rosemary tree at Whole Foods the other day.  We have had them in the past and killed it too!  So we are putting it front and center in the kitchen so we don't forget to water it and give it the love and attention it deserves.  Our niece gave me a beautiful Christmas table runner that The Herbal Husband brought home from Peru.  I made gingerbread ornaments years ago and I'm going to decorate the tree with them.  So our Christmas plans are starting to take shape.  Hope yours are as well.

As you may remember, this is the time of giveaways for my blog.  Going to get The Herbal Husband lined up to arrange and pack items.  Bonnie, my herbal companion, and I are going up to the Village Herb Shop next Saturday for Kathleen's annual Christmas Gift Basket Class next Saturday, December 14.  This year it is a Tea Tasting Gift Basket.  The basket will contain two different teas, a spiced chai black and a jingle bell green along with a cinnamon sugar and a gingerbread scone mix.  This is Kathleen's last Christmas basket class.  She has announced her retirement, but the Village Herb Shop will live on with a new owner!   Bonnie and I have been to many of these classes and have always gone home (It's a two hour drive for us!) in herbal heaven.  So pray for good weather!

Be on the lookout for the official giveaway post to win!  We have light snow at the moment and it's going to get messy later today before it turns to all rain tomorrow!  Could be all snow!  Hope you are having a great day!  Talk to you later.

Thanks FL! We are going from freezing rain to all rain tomorrow and then back to the deep freeze! A holiday adventure! xo

Ok, I WILL pray for good weather for you two on your drive.

Will you do me a favor and give Kathleen a HUGE hug and congratulations?

Let me know who is going to be the new owner.

Sending love and yes, I feel so blessed to have a healthy boy in our lives. He is a little miracle.

Love,

S

We'll just be happy to see her and of course, I will give her a big, big hug from you. So glad your youngest grandson is doing well. The photo of phone man and the little guy brought a rush of wonderful feelings for the two of you and, of course, his parents! xo

I bought a small pine tree to use this year and will make some small cookies to decorate it. I don't feel like bringing out all the ornaments from the garage and will keep it very simple this year.

I love your rosemary tree, how perfect for the LVL to have an herbal Christmas tree. It should smell extra yummy with the addition of the handmade ornaments!

Merry Christmas to you and the Herbal Husband Nancy.

Thanks dear Carla! We have given most of our ornaments away to friends who will use them. So it is very simple! I was thinking of a small Xmas tree, but this one won out in the end! Merry Christmas to you and your family, Carla! xo
