    I like reading through the Christmas Countdown list for reminders on things that may have fallen off my radar. I saw one today after already making a list.

    To Do This Week:

    • Clean out the refrigerator.
    • Double check recipes for ingredients necessary for Thanksgiving. Done
    • Plan meals for the December concert evenings. Done
    • Assemble Thanksgiving gift bags. Done
    • Wrap presents. Done
    • Make dd's gift. Done

    I too have to clean out the fridge.
    Rearrange freezers and stockpile cupboard.
    Check location and wash containers to store baking.

    My frig freezer is pretty full, so I think I'm set there.. But I do need to clean out my frig and take an inventory of the freezer and the pantry. And I've got a freezer downstairs that needs cleaned out and shut off. I just don't put enough in it anymore to keep it running.
    I got my first tree up in the family room. I need to decorate it, but I'm not in a hurry. I usually do my decorating the weekend after Thanksgiving, but I'm not hosting this year, so I can sneak in a little Christmas early. ;)
    I need to decide on my Christmas cards...I didn't get that done last week.

    Next weekend will either be decorating or baking, not both

    I will start my baking by the end of the month. It will be a bit different this year as I cannot eat a lot that I will be baking (with mum). I will possibly freeze a lot of it so it won't go to waste.

    I'm getting through a lot this week. Next week is a big cooking week. I may try to get in some baking or at least get the dry ingredients together for more cookie mixes. After next week, I'll be in baking mode.

    Well done Lucie.

    I have gotten most baking done. I still need to make some bark and a peppermint pie. I will also have DH make his fruitcake if he feels up to it.
