As Christmas approaches, my to-do list lengthens. As such, this post shortens. ;-P
Today will be taken up by unpacking a fridge after our one maid filled it with plates. The fridge being coffin-like in volume.
Luckily I have a slave (my younger brother) to help me move the ceramic plates somewhere else.
When that's done, I get to bake! Hopefully. I'm thinking lamingtons and more traditional treats named Jan Smutsies and Hertzoggies.
For those of you with zero South African connection (me excluded), Jan Smutsies and Hertzoggies are basically small soft cakes with apricot jam baked in between. Incredibly delicious. Ask nicely and I might even post a recipe.
But to intrigue you, I present:
Hertzoggies (the tops are made of coconut)
Ask really REALLY nicely and I might throw in some other kick-ass traditional South African treats.
But I digress. After that I have to pack a suitcase for a week and move into my mother's room to make space for the family. Which means I have to plan what I have to wear. For almost a week.
I don't even plan what I wear to weddings and funerals. Sigh...
But I will suffer this trial for the sake of Christmas.
Speaking of trials. I'm also very likely going to have to stay off blogger until Tuesday.
I'll try to sneak in some blogger time.
But it is beyond likely that I will drop off the face of the blogosphere until next Tuesday. Starting now.
Have a blessed Christmas! May your time with your family be as wonderful as it can possibly be and my the love of Jesus Christ fill your house on this Holy Day.
With LOTS of love,
Missing you already,
P.S. Commencing drop from blogosphere in. Ten. Nine... AAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaa.........
