One Week Until Christmas

Well, it's one week until Christmas, are you ready?  I am so far behind that I don't know what to do.  I've started wrapping presents but still have not baked one thing. Usually by now I would have upwards of a thousand cookies baked.  Not this year. After 40 years of excessive Christmas baking, I guess I can take one year off.  The workers finished yesterday until Spring which feels like it's happening right now.  We are having two cooler days and then back to the 60's again. My daffodils are about 7 inches high and my hostas are all coming up. My blueberries have buds on them.  This is all so wrong.
I managed to make one basket to give to a friend today and included this compound butter in it.  This is roasted garlic and rosemary butter and it is wonderful.

It's packed in a basket with lots of other treats and I have a loaf of bread baking to go along with it.  Maybe I'm not a total slacker.
