Melting:: Chocolate for peppermint bark.There's a bake sale at the girl's school, plus the teachers are getting jars of this, so I've been busy making a few batches. There are so many good peppermint bark recipes floating around out there and I always plan to try them, but when it comes down to it I stick with this recipe by that Queen of Evil Paula Deen. It's just so easy. (As a side note, if you ever find yourself saddled with a few dozen extra Krispy Kreme donuts, then you can make Paula's Bread Pudding. Lordy.)
Anxiously Awaiting:: The Santaland Diaries. Jay and I are having a date night next week and we're seeing the show based on the David Sedaris book. I bought a new dress and am excited to go out.
Drinking:: Homemade chai. I also made a separate batch, replacing all the spices with a few heaping shakes of pumpkin pie spice. Yum.
After watching this video about how to make perfect snowflakes, I'm obsessed with the process. I only wish I had a kid to do it with me. The boy is too old ("cool") and the girl is too young to wield scissors big enough to cut through the many folds of paper. I gave her a shot at it but I kept having visions of trips to the ER with a baggie full of ice and a finger. So yeah, it's just me sitting around like a dork making snowflakes.
Reading:: Nothing at the moment! Can you believe it? Although I do have some library books needing to be picked up. I just finished Confessions of a Teenage Jesus Jerk, which was good. (Review to come soon.)
Wanting:: Dani's pompom garland. Must.Go.Buy.Pompoms.
What are you up to?
