Wow – was that a long week, or what? I’m starting to get busy at work, and getting a lot of new projects. I’m really happy, and finally feel like I belong there (I got a nameplate this week!). People are more friendly, and I look forward to going in every day. But damn – I’m ready for the weekend! I slept the whole way home on the train last night – and still went to bed early.
I’ve been working on my Christmas knitting and I’ve been ordering from the ‘net – but can’t show you pictures of either… Sigh…isn’t this time of year hard on bloggers? Oh! I have something I can show you – I ordered it for me. I ordered a book about software license agreements….heehee…no? Come on – how exciting! It got great reviews – anyone want to borrow it?
This is dessert for tonight – baked apples. I haven’t had these in years, but it just seemed like a good dessert for a cold winter day.
I love cooking – I hardly get to do it anymore since I get home pretty late so Larry cooks most nights (and he’s a great cook!). But sometimes on the weekends, I still like to cook and bake. And I think something about this time of year makes me want to bake more too. Cieara and I watched Food Network today for a little and I got a couple of receipes….Candy Cane cookies, Rugelach and Chocolate Peppermint Pinwheel cookies that I think I will try soon. But tomorrow, I think I’m going to make Almond Crescent and Chocolate Peppermint drop-cookies (see a trend with chocolate peppermint?). It is going to be a miserable day here with snow and rain, so it will be good to stay inside, finish decorating the house and make cookies (and knit of course!). But unlike someone else, I really hope it isn’t bad because I don’t get snow days and my commute will suck if its snowing/sleeting here….but I do agree that sometimes there is nothing like being inside all toasty warm while you knit and watch it snow.
Dan is coming over tonight and we are putting up the tree and decorating it. We switched to a fake tree last year – I miss the scent of a real tree but I love the ease of a fake. I wish Andrew could be home to help, but I’ll keep his special ornaments off the tree for him to put up when he comes home in a few weeks…
OK, now back to the Christmas knitting grind…enjoy the weekend!
