Today the weather feels a bit fall-ish! Our highs are to be in the 70's. Of course that will only last a few days then the heat is back for a while.
We will lose about an hour and 15 minutes of daylight this month. The average temperatures will be getting cooler, and it will be time to start preparing the yards and gardens for the winter.
It is also the time that many of us start to REALLY think abut the upcoming holidays! I have picked up odds and ends over the past year, for Christmas baskets and I also give lots of home canned goodies. I love making cookies, candies and sweet breads as well.
Baking goods will really start going on sale in October and November. It will be time to stock up.
This year I will be cutting back a lot on gift giving. There are so many that I do not ever see during the year (or hear from), and I just see no reason to worry and fret about gifts for those folks. Gifts are going to be meaningful this year! My peace of mind will thank me!!!!!!
Do you start thinking about Christmas gifts and holiday dinners this early? Are you making any cute home made gifts?
Pass on your ideas to us. I think we might all like to shake it up a little with new ideas!!
These are cute little stocking stuffers for the kids. Packs of gum all decorated up. Sorry video does not work
