I hope spring is in full swing where you live, and you are enjoying being at home and together with your family.

This week I’m getting out some of my frozen cranberries that saved from last fall. I am going to make a pink cranberry fluff dessert. Check your freezer to see if you still have some cranberries. If not, see if you can put some on your grocery order this week.

If you sew and you have fabric scraps, round those up too. I am sharing a charitable craft on Saturday, and it’s not face masks! Just in case you are tired of making face masks and would like to sew a different type of gift for a change.

I leave you with this Christmas quote that I recently found:

“Christmas shines in some hearts as soon as they know it’s coming, and they begin at once their plans to make other people happy –

which is the real way of getting a Merry Christmas for one’s self.”
