My Holiday Calendar
by Cheryl Demas

You've probably seen the calendars Martha Stewart publishes (or used to publish?). She graciously shares her schedule with us so we can all use it to help us plan our holidays.

So in the same spirit, I thought I'd go back to last year's calendar and share my schedule with you all.

November 30
Have cleared spot on deck for new outdoor deep fryer. Deep fry turkey.

Horrible rum ball hangover. Consider adjusting recipe-too much sugar perhaps?

Prepare magical Christmas morning scene for children - maybe catch a little sleep first ...

Add "sorry these are late" notes to all cards-mail.
