Happy Christmas

A few Christmas indulgences I'm enjoying this holiday season:
  • Sleeping in, followed by lounging till noon
  • Strong French press coffee with cream and sugar
  • A steaming stack of pancakes swimming in a sea of syrup
  • Mimosas
  • Roughhousing with squealing children
  • Second helpings at dinner
  • Third helpings at dinner
  • Apple pie for desert
  • Second helpings at desert
  • Thirds...
  • Super secret family recipe "Spider Cookies"
  • Copious amounts of red wine
  • Egg Nog with spiced rum and nutmeg
  • Watching "A Christmas Story" over and over and over again - interrupted occasionally by checking in on the Yule Log.
Happy Christmas!



"I have not been afraid of excess: excess on occasion is exhilarating. It prevents moderation from acquiring the deadening effect of a habit."

You know, I've been promised the Spider Cookie recipe several times. Yet still I don't have it!
