To Do Tuesday 12-28-21

Welcome to the last To Do Tuesday of 2021! I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas. Now, what are your plans for New Year's Eve?  It will be Party Town at our house - in our PJ's - haha! Let us know your plans and projects by joining the link party below.

Last week I had big dreams for my goals, but in reality a lot of time was spent in food prep for Christmas Eve brunch with our daughter and little grands. I thoroughly enjoyed myself in the kitchen, taking my time with homemade slider buns for the ham and my Granny Mitchell's sugar cookie recipe. Although my husband and daughter were both a little bit under the weather, we still had a great time together. The car racing tower was put together by Papaw and Everett, and it was the star of the day, along with sugar cookies!

Christmas Eve was a good day! 

Here is the list from last week:
1. Make progress on the Wedding Quilt
✅2. Spend Christmas Eve morning with our daughter and The Littles
✅3. Spend Christmas day at home or maybe we will go out to eat
4. Take down decorations and clean the house
5. Work on Pieces of the Santa Fe Trail - last block and layout
✅6. Make and post last Color Challenge block for 2021 - made the block but no post yet
✅7. Bind and do a post on Christmas wall quilt - done and posted here

We just relaxed after Christmas Eve and did a lot of reading (and eating!) This book was recommended by someone I follow on Instagram. Lots of twists and turns and a great read. Now I'm reading Firefly Season by Melanie Lageschulte, the 10th book in the Melinda Foster series. I love these "gentle reads".

If I can stop reading long enough, these are my goals for the coming week:
1. Wedding Quilt - cutting
2. Take down Christmas decorations
3. Pieces of the Santa Fe Trail - last block, layout, and post
4. Color Challenge layout and post

Now it's your turn! Can't wait to read what all of you have going on these last few days of 2021!

UPDATE: Inlinkz continues to have issues with the link for Marsha's blog, so I will provide it right here. Go give her some encouragement and blog love, since her daughter is in the hospital!

  1. Looks like you had a Merry Christmas with family and kids had a lot of fun.
    Thanks for hosting To Do Tuesday and put all of us on track with our goals to the week.
    Happy New Year!

  2. Looks like a really fun Christmas get together. Hope everyone is feeling much better now. That under the weather stuff before a holiday is really not fun. Good luck on your goals this week.

  3. So glad you had such a good Christmas Eve with your daughter and the grands! Your menu sounds yummy! A quiet day after sounds wonderful, too. I'll have to check out those books you've mentioned. Have a great week, and good luck with your to-do list, Linda!

  4. your menu sounds good still in the planning stage here for New Years Eve

  5. Looks like a sweet time was had by all! Hope all are feeling better. And Happy New Year!

  6. It does look like lots of fun. We had to re-think our get together. Instead of gift exchange games we all made handmade cards for my oldest daughter. Hopefully they brightened her spirits while in the hospital.

  7. It looks like you put together a good spread. That Rock, Paper, Scissors book looks good. I just sent a sample of it to my Kindle. Happy New Year!

    1. I really enjoyed it Mary! Happy New Year to you too. :)

  8. It looks like the grands had a wonderful time playing with you. I forgot to take any pictures at all. What was I thinking? It's hard to believe the year is almost gone. On the other hand, I'm trying hard to get 2 more quilts finished this month. One will definitely be done but I'm not sure the second one will. Fingers are crossed! Have a great New Year's Eve celebration. (I'll be reading most likely!)

  9. Linda Christmas at your place looked like fun in spite of a couple of people feeling under the weather. Your menu sounds yummy. Heading over to see if I can get those books from my library now. Good luck with your list this week. Happy New Year.🎉

  10. Hi Linda, thanks for sharing those lovely photos of those precious grandchildren enjoying time with the grandparents. Family and Christmas are meant to be together. Loved seeing your menu..lots of great eating! I hope you have a healthy, happy New Year, and for all of us, a stress free one.

  11. Yes, I was just thinking how we have so many goals during this time, but family fun calls us away – including the kitchen! Looking forward to seeing your Pieces of the Past Quilt! Melva’s patterns are fabulous! Happy New Year to you and yours!

  12. I left a great comment, but it went into space on blogger. Have a wonderful New Year's Eve - have one for me! Enjoy the cold front - hope it stays around for 3 months. Dreamer that I am. Hugs

  13. Love the collage of the kids enjoying the day! Hot Wheels were always a hit at our house. Enjoy the New Year with happiness and health!
