Twas the Night Before the Night Before...

Warning...objects in photo are not as they appear.

Twas the night before the night before Christmas, and all through the house, people were scrambling like mad men, especially the spouse...the spouse of the City Boy, that is. Me. Trying, last minute, to get a few more Christmas gifts ready.

Lotion! That's what I was making. Scrumptiously yummy, thick and creamy, almond vanilla. Sitting on the table were brushed aluminum bottles in which to pour it the moment the concoction became cool. And then the spouse (the other spouse) informed of the bad news. Those were not pumps in the box with the bottles. were spritzer tops.

Huh? 3 lbs of lotion, and I had no pumps? Sigh...good thing my lotion sets up relatively thick! Into jars it went. Not as thick as a cream, but thick enough to work the alternative packaging plan.

Hope your night before night before went smoother than mine! Though to be honest, the lotion is pretty darned smooth!
