busy...busy over here,,,

Hello everyone...thought i'd share what's keeping me busy the last days. First of...i am working on these few small designs, i really wanted to finish these off before christmas as i wanted a couple of these will be given as gifts to friends. I still have a few days before leaving for a very short leave to the southern part of Holland with friends. Finally potted these plants that we've bought at the garden center nearly a week ago. I wanted something different but couldn't find the right plants to be added for the pot so...this is it, plain and simple. I've so wanted chicken wings which tasted hot and did try a few before but not really what i had expected...yesterday, did another try out and marinated a few...seen a recipe at pinterest hot wings and hmmmm these does taste good! i am sure going to use these often. Coming home from work last friday evening and unexpectedly Chris and his friends are in and playing games said they might stay here instead of going out as it's a bit of party weekend in town...spur of the moment, i made a cake and some snacks. Was ready bringing the cake to the game room when they suddenly appeared ready for chilling outside but seeing the cake they sat down and had a piece of cake. Since the snacks where too much for me and hubby, i quickly put it in a box and one of the boys took to his parents...ah, youth so unpredictable!! This chicken stew tasted delicious too as well as the apple crumb cake. The last few days had been a very good winter weather, so taking advantage of it spending time outdoors. So lovely walking along the beach. Added some other items for the Christmas tree...i think it turned out pretty well! Many thanks for stopping by and the lovely comments. Happy week to all!!

Hello Mylene,

How lovely to have Chris's friends over, nothing like some home cooking. Your hot chicken recipe sounds delicious, have a few chilli plants this Summer. Enjoy the week too. Your Christmas tree is stunning.

Merry Christmas and all the best for the coming year.

Happy days.

I know that I mustn't be hungry when I go to look at your blog as there is always something tasty to be seen. And if I am hungry your pictures make my mouth water and I have to go and get a little snack. So wonderful top see what you cook and bake.
Your ornaments are all so lovely. And great to see your Christmas tree with all the ornaments from previous years, I guess.
