skirtin' the issue

yup. just a week ago, i was thinking that i was in need of a wife...but apparently all i really needed was to clean my kitchen counters & some chocolate amber. oh, and this new skirt for $4.98 on clearance at target.

1) i finally got a chance to watch miss potter. it was as wonderful as the reviews said it was.

2) this morning, i got up at 4:30 and made cranberry bliss bars for the kids' teachers. after work, i will make the creamcheesefrosting & package them up for delivery tomorrow.

3) i am really looking forward to this weekend and not having to be anywhere all weekend. we have had something everyday after school this week and mama needs to chill 'til the next episode and dream up the Christmas menu.

What if a new skirt could fix the problems of the world? Can you imagine? No more war; new skirt instead. I can't even remember the last time I wore a skirt. You definitely have me thinking!

Now onto your recipes. I love cranberries.
