okay, so it became crystal clear to me this morning what "santa" will bring to my dad and teenage brothers ... FOOD!!! first of all, dad loves chocolate so i may make him his very own batch of fudge, or if i'm feeling particularly "martha stewart-ish" i'll bake him a pumpkin pie (his favorite). my brothers, i think their #1 favorite activity (aside from sleeping) is eating. so i'll whip up a batch of cookies for each of them. easy, peasy! i've always heard that the quickest way to a man's heart is through his stomach. i already know that these 3 blokes love me. but cooking for people who love eating your food, well that's like giving myself a christmas gift, too. so everyone's happy!
the knitting plan for tonight is to finish the scarf for my SIL. but during my lunch hour (which is right now), i will start the matching hat. yeah, that sounds like a plan, stan.
