This is the (fairly) unglamorous scene on my worktable right now as I scurry to get boxes in the mail this afternoon. I spent all of yesterday baking: three batches of quick bread, tons of oatmeal flatbread (that's in the foreground), applesauce (which I canned, of course), and a huge quantity of a squash-bean-corn stew I call Three Sisters. I love giving food as holiday gifts. You're pretty much guaranteed it'll be appreciated, and, for those of us who travel for the holidays, having some nourishing food in the house can be a huge blessing. Last Christmas, a blessed pan of lasagna from Jen and Corrine saved our road-weary butts from having to cook all through the holidays. What a lifesaver.

Anyway, I'm off to the post office, and then back here to clean, clean, clean. Friends are coming! I can't wait. Stay tuned (hopefully) tomorrow for a little ornament tutorial.
