Merry Christmas!

yesterday Gwen and I baked...we didn't write ...we did some Christmas baking. Not holiday baking, we agreed, Christmas baking. I made more twice-baked shortbreads (thank you Smitten Kitchen) and philly nuggets (thank you Mum) and whipped up a chili cuz my boys were coming by later. Gwen made oatcakes and cheesecake and a lemon meringue pie...
then we took Hoagy into the winter wonderland.
sometimes it is important to say yes to things that seem like they
should be a no.

Things like taking time in the frenzy to carefully fold in egg whites or let the dog try mouse hunting in the snow.
just because.
it was that sort of day.
thanks Gwen....

Jan - Oh, it all just sounds wonderful! And I love that picture of the snow on the trees. Have a wonderful day, and my best wishes to you and your family for all the best in 2012.
