ARF/5-A-Day #50

by Cate on December 20, 2006

A very full day today indeed. It seems like ever since I started working from home, I’m busier than I ever was before; funny how things work out. Nicholas’ school had their holiday party today and the kids were adorable with their little red Rudolph noses. They sang a bunch of songs for the parents, which he has dutifully been practicing for the past few weeks NON-STOP, and it was adorable. Hard to believe that the next time all the parents are going to be gathered together there, it will be for the kids’ graduation! And I know I’m going to be bawling my eyes out. I got choked up at the last graduation, and this time, HE’LL be the one wearing the cap and gown.

Managed to squeeze in an appointment at the dentist, a few errands, two catering orders and even a full load of writing assignments. For the catering orders, I kept it simple and relied on tried-and-trues. I made Barbara’s Watch Hill Sour Cream Coffee Cake, and a few cookies trays filled with Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, Chocolate Dipped Oatmeal Raisin Cookies and Chocolate Dipped Pretzels. Simple sweet items that take the edge off, but aren’t overly heavy. Perfect.

I had planned to put ARF/5-A-Day on hiatus until January 2, but a few entries arrived in my inbox today and I hardly want to discourage any ARF/5-A-Day eating, so I’ll leave you with that.

Until tomorrow…
