So MuchTo Do, So Little Time!

 Today is December 2, if you are like me there is still so much to do.  I hope this post is helpful and that you enjoy making  the easy to make decorations.  Making decorations with my grandchildren is one of the activities I am looking forward to this year.  We will make hot chocolate and sing happy Christmas song, can't wait.

15 Easy-to-Make Christmas Decorations
Put the ho-ho-ho in “home for the holidays” with cheery, inexpensive decorations that are so easy to make, you can assemble them in minutes. Or work with your kids to assemble them. Or just have your kids assemble them. Those pinecones scattered across your lawn? Think of them as the beginnings of a festive centerpiece or outdoor decoration. (Pinecones are also available at garden and craft stores.) All of these projects call for minimal materials—and even less effort. Then more quick ideas: for gift toppers, table decorations, and storage in the aftermath

Quick Tip

When baking multiple batches, don’t reuse a cookie sheet while it’s hot—dough will bake unevenly. Run the pan’s underside under cold water: You’ll cool it without needing to wipe it dry. Get more tips.

Set aboard a Mark Twain-themed cruise on the not-so-peaceful Mississippi, Washburn's snappy second mystery to feature literary travel agent Delilah Dickinson (after 2008's Frankly My Dear, I'm Dead) shows how much mischief a tour group can get into while confined to a moving paddle wheeler. When one of Delilah's charges, Ben Webster, causes a scene in the casino, the captain calls Delilah on the carpet. Ben later vanishes only to reappear as a corpse. Meanwhile, a charming onboard Mark Twain impersonator, Mark Lansing, takes a shine to Delilah, but turns out to have more than one identity to hide. And Mark isn't alone in harboring secrets, as one teary-eyed tour group member confides that a riverboat employee was murdered precisely one year earlier on the same tract of waterway. Delilah saves more than the day as Washburn smoothly infuses this cozy with hints of romance and humor as well as glimpses of Twain sights in today's Hannibal, Mo.
