Shopping as a sport

Fun day. First I boxed up the treats.

Then my friends and I set out on a shopping jag. A new Keurig store in Guelph!

Got me some coconut coffee!

Then I sweated down Penningtons. Trying on clothes is an aerobic event for me! Especially while shopping by leaning on a cart instead of a rollator. It wasn't pretty but I got some excellent deals!

I came home and did some really amateur wrapping for the kids at tomorrow's family Christmas here.

Harry was a big help.

I tried again with the soft caramel. Zehrs was out of the PC brand so I used these instead.

One minute at 350 worked pretty good. I like them better than the kraft caramels though if I tried again I'd use half a caramel and that might be perfect.

Didn't occur to me till near the end to put two in like antlers.

Up a bit higher, a few dabs of icing and you'd have reindeer.

Big day tomorrow I should get to bed!


Instead of funnies I'd like to express my condolences to my friend and her family on the loss of her mom and another friend on the loss of her dad. No good time of year for it but this is a tough season to lose someone. Wishing you peace Pari and Wendy.
