Let's see. After the insomniac bear, I thought I should be proactive so that I wouldn't keep losing sleep (imagining him/her discovering the quail and ...) so I rigged up a very high-tech first-line bear defense system (FLBDS, or flubeds). Voila!

Then it was time for Christmas! I think I must have baked over 20 dozen cookies this year. And they are all gone. Some to family, some to friends. A big box went to my postman, as he is retiring this year. Darn.
In my ongoing battle to keep waste at bay, I had to come up with some creative ways to wrap gifts. This was for Marianne - three types of cookies (in cellophane bags), cowboy candy and spiced plum jam, plus a little something I picked up for her at the NH art fest.
I did not finish the sparkly mitts that I was knitting for the young woman who cuts my hair, but they will be finished before my next appointment in January.

I made it home in time to whip up a batch of red lentil hummus (yummmeh!) and had a friend in for a glass or two of wine. Then I fell into bed, was up bright and early on Sunday and cleaned the house. My sister, Con, came to spend the day and night, as our youngest sister had come up to spell her for Christmas. A good time was had by all. Especially the dogs, who LOVE their Auntie. I was very happy to have her company, as it was the second anniversary of the loss of my heart dog, Scrappy. She made the day much more bearable.

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday. It's alarming how fast this year came to an end!
