Jot a Note
Today’s healthy Christmas countdown task is to “Jot a Note to You” by writing a Christmas card to yourself with words of encouragement. The reason is that we forget ourselves during the holidays and need to remember to take time to care for our own needs.
I am taking some quiet time this morning to just sit and write about why I’m seeking a healthier and more meaningful Christmas.
Fun Christmas stamps celebrating knitting may be found at the U.S. Post Office.
Cookie Recipe Swap
To continue the writing theme, I’ve written out a couple of recipes to share for today’s cookie recipe swap at Scrappy Jessi’s blog.
My offering is glazed Pfeffernuesse—German Pepper Nut cookies.
See the napkin on the right in the picture? It’s one of a set of eight I found at a unique antique/consignment store in Fort Walton Beach over Thanksgiving (only $5 total!). I think the fabric is vintage barkcloth.
Here are the recipes I used.
