If baking cookies and gingerbreads as well as shopping for gifts are the only things you have to worry about, consider yourself lucky.
Due to my garden weed situation, I have been diligent in weeding out my front yard for the past couple of days (my backyard is yet to finish, sigh!). So far, Orange does not have much of a summer, as the intermitent rain and the mugginess felt before downpours made gardening even less pleasurable than it was. Anyway, I’m glad that my front yard is looking a lot better now and before moving on to my backyard, I decided to take a break and bake a cake. A much needed gesture to inject some pleasure in between gardening.
