Happy St. Nicolas Day

Russian icon Instaplanet Saint Nicholas Happy St. Nicolas DayI can’t believe this one snuck up on me with out my being prepared. Every year I bake cookies for Saint Nicolas Day, except this one evidently. I guess I am just a little overwhelmed this year. I am writing a couple articles, potentially working on a new quilt with a fast approaching deadline, getting my daughter to a lot of appointments with dermatologists, following with patch testing, and helping my son study and prepare for assessment tests. He has decided he wants to go to the magnet highschool in our neighborhood. He loves math and science and at this point he is beyond my capabilities. The deadline for application is in two weeks, eek!

Christmas will be here before we know it, I have not even had much time to think about that. Yesterday when the snow was coming down so heavy and I was in a cab with my daughter on our way to yet another dermatologist appointment, all I could think about was how nice it would be to snuggle up on the couch with a good book and a cup of tea. I was grateful that at least I was not driving and looking for parking.
