More Buckets

Yesterday Plantboy had to take a day off because he went out of town for several days last week. I told Plantboy that I thought I'd take a day off too. I spent most of the day Christmas shopping. I also treated myself to a guacamole bacon burger at Red Robin. I ordered double fries and drank enough rootbeer to rival the ward campout intake. While I ate my luscious lunch I read and I did NOT wipe any faces or break up any fights.

If you haven't done this for a while, please, take a day off. It was pretty much awesome.

I also bought supplies to make up a few more of my gift buckets--these ones for the ladies I visit teach. Though there are 80 things on the to-do list before Christmas should really be addressed, my project has put me a bit in the mood today. They are rather festive. I'm going to fill them with hazelnut clusters. Don't you wish I visit-taught you?

I nominate you my visiting teacher.

Yes! I DO wish you were one of my visiting teachers. I'm guessing hazelnut dusters are a food item. But my first mental image was of a brown duster -- as in get the dust out of the nooks and crannies.

The buckets are WAY cute!

Those are really cute! I took a few hours "off" this morning and went shopping. It was so nice to try on clothes by myself for once. Now I wish I'd gone out to eat too :)

I finally have visiting teachers that I love (I had a dud for about 2 years) but I do wish you lived here so we could hang out and talk about all sorts of cool stuff.

mmmm Red Robin (turkey burgers).

Candy by the bucketful is a recipe for Visiting Teaching success, for sure!

The thought of taking a day off is wonderful. To be alone- HA! It is making me giddy! I am glad you enjoyed yourself. Your buckets are fantastic, nothing like a little craftiness to get into the spirit of the holidays.

Please visit teach me! I can't believe you do all that and you have how many boys? I can't imagine ?

Ummmmm, YES, I DO wish you were my VT!! Also, I'll have you know that I now own a little bottle of Cardamom because I can't make Zucchini Bread (or banana bread) without it!

Will you visit teach me? (Or at least teach me how to make these.)
