something to dance to

 On the twentieth of December...

....I will attempt a sedulous catch-up, of sorts.

The forming of gobs of chocolate into balls and rolling them in cocoa, hazelnuts, or pearl gold dust. These truffles are simply a cinch to make.


A total of four Nutcracker performances culminating in success...and relief for all concerned.




Champagne toasts for husband's birthday...


...And a pecan pie that was delicious. 
In days of yore I would have been hesitant to admit it, but now I feel as plump and proud as a fat hen to have thought of it at all, ordered and picked up at the bakery. 
Smart move, indeed! Cluck! Cluck!

Good for you ordering a pie! That was a stroke of brilliance with all you have had going on. Happy birthday to your husband and congratulations to your little ballerina and a Merry Christmas to you!

the 13th of October

Friday, the 13th, and at last the weather has turned cooler. I breathe deeply as I turn off the air-conditioner and slide open a few windows...
