No Boxing Day Sales For Me

Two yarn stores were having Boxing Day sales and one store was having a day after Boxing Day Sale but I decided to pass on all three. I just didn't feel like swarming with the masses to purchase yarn that I didn't know when I would use or on what just because it would be cheaper than when I would eventually buy it. And I am trying hard not to add to my stash just for the sake of it.

But I did buy a bag at The Gap that was on sale that I had decided not to buy before Christmas as I didn't want to pay the asking price!

It's Beginning to Smell A Lot like Christmas

Because in the oven right now is the Christmas Cake. The spousal unit had enough of the cheapo American whiskey left for me to soak the fruit last week and today I made the cake.

The theory is that next week the cake will be marzipanned and the week after it will be iced. But it has not been unknown for the cake to be iced after Christmas so I am not bound to that timetable.

And we have appropriate Christmas weather for the making of the cake as it has been so cold the snow has been lingering, add the Christmas songs from the radio and it feels a lot like Christmas.
