Christmas Eve and Weekending

zzzzzzz....I'm late today.

As I should be because it is Christmas Eve! and there is sleeping to be done, and elving, and baking and, and, and lots of randomness for you today.


The boy's favorite.

So succulent.

What is not succulent?  Broken printer.

We made this cake (via Project Little Smith via Martha).

I had to hand write the $&%*#$ thing.

Holy hell, y'all, handwriting an entire recipe!  Shades of the 50's.

My cake was not nearly as yummy as hers looked.

Clearly no one minded.

(Note cute little bundt pan I thrifted recently!)

We did some rouge decorating in my hood ...

(Notice the shorts and T-shirt in late December.)

Lots of Solsticing happened ...

Lots of fooding happened ...

Texas snowflakes.

You take some flour tortillas and warm them slightly.

Then you cut them up like snowflakes.

Then you brush them with warm butter and cinnamon and pop 'em in the oven.



I treated myself to a little Anthropologie-ness while out shopping.

You know, just in case I didn't get any Anthro for Cmas or something horrible like that.  


Big, new tea cup and a little jam holder that I shall use for honey.

FinnigantheCurious and I are going to Grandmary's on the 26th so I supposed I will be away for the rest of the week.

I wish you all the very loveliest of lovely, no matter what you celebrate, or even if you do not.

I'm so excited about the new year.

This will be a BIG, really BIG one for me in many, many ways.

Yes, yes, I will tell you.  Never fear.  You know me and my big mouth.

Kiss your babies and your not-so-babies-anymore.

Kiss your loved ones.

Kiss your stinky Uncle Festus.

Kiss the strangers on the street.

Just get out there and spread some joy, y'all!

Merry Everything!!



  1. Merry Everything to you and yours!! Hope you guys have a wonderful Christmas! (did the boys use the cabin?) See you next year!!!

  2. Merry Christmas and I'm looking forward to getting with you for tea and such... either homelike or at THE STEEPING ROOM!

    You have a wonderful time. I'm off to bake apricot and pistachio cookies in a minute.

    Your neighbor and part time stalker!

  3. Give your momma a big hug for me. You will bring her lots of fun and good eats. Be Safe and Be Happy.
