It’s List Week for the Holiday Grand Plan.

Make the following lists:

  • Gifts to be given, with a budget — I’ll keep that offline and therefore secret. However, I do have some thoughts about handmade gifts. I’ll be starting those when I get home, having I trust completed the Basque Sweater.
  • Christmas card list — ditto
  • Visits to make — I plan to be visited rather than to visit
  • Parties/Entertaining — just family, I think
  • Menus for Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, other parties
    • Thanksgiving: turkey, mashed potatoes, corn, dressing, gravy, cranberry sauce, hot bread, salad, pie

  • Christmas:cold meats and cheeses, bread and crackers, fruits and vegetables, chips, sweets

We should also clean the front porch which I will have to do when I get back to town.
