A new favorite perch, just for the holidays…

New perch

…my newest Christmas ornament, a felt tree embroidered to keep my gingerbread lady company (and yes, I embroider. rarely, but it’s been known to happen. It’s easy to forget how quickly a project can go when you’re not knitting an entire sweater)…

Ornaments

…getting some Grade-A help in the wrapping department (she’s pretty sure this one is for her)…

Help

…baking gingerbread scones that taste much better than they look (thank you, King Arthur Flour)…

Gingerbread

…baking another platter of gingerbread cookies, just for me (and Andrew, if he’s nice to me)…

Cookies

…baking another one of Nigella’s flourless cakes, this time a spiced chocolate cake…

Cake

…baking some cranberry muffins for breakfast (and yes, I’m starting to realize just how many baked goods are appearing in a house of only 2 people)…

Muffins

…best college friends, circa the year 2000 (dressed circa 1970’s for a party)…

friends in 2000

…and best college friends, 10+ years later, circa last Saturday night…

friends

which just might be my favorite thing of all.
