Wow. Another year of NaBloPoMo has come to an end. I wish I could write something really profound here, but, you’ve read my blog so you know I don’t do profound.
Now we can go back to ignoring each other until next year.
I know it isn’t December first, but we had Lauren today and she likes helping put the tree up.
It felt so weird to be decorating for Christmas since it was so warm
As you can see, at least one section of the pre-lit tree has lights that are burnt out. Awesome.
And we got some new wreaths.
I have photos of them, but they don’t want to upload. Use your imagination
I was safe at work. But we were slow, so I was mostly bored.
I found a cool website- Black Friday Death Count. It was a pretty slow year compared to years past. No one died.
I sound way too disappointed about that, don’t I?
Anyways, I count myself fortunate that I have people that I can knit for and who appreciate it. Especially when I already have the yarn and pattern.
Believe it or not, despite my struggles and whining, I am thankful for everyone and everything that I have.
I hope you guys all have a great day. I’d say try not to eat too much, but we all know how funny that is.
Whether your day is bird-centric, vegetarian or vegan, I hope the food is good and you don’t have to deal with too many jerks.
So this will post as the 27th because apparently WordPress is six hours ahead of me. But it’s the 26th where I am so I haven’t missed a NaNoBloPo post, for those of you keeping track.
I have passed 100 followers on this blog. I have passed 100 followers on one of my stories. That means more than 100 individual people on each site are reading something I wrote. And are evidently entertained enough that they keep coming back for more.
That puts a lot of god damn pressure on me.
Clocking in at 1059 pages, this was the biggest read of the year. Sorry, Murakami. It was my first time reading Sherlock Holmes. Oh sure, I’d seen a couple episodes and movies, but I never actually read the stories.
I learned that Sherlock Holmes did cocaine. They kind of gloss over that in the earlier films- especially the ones geared towards kids. I learned Dr. Watson got married.
The stories were good. Sometimes there was justice, sometimes there wasn’t. Sometimes everything was tied up in a neat little bow, other times everything was up in the air.
I liked it. Definitely worth the read, but I’m going to wait before tackling volume II.
I used this recipe and whipped up a dozen and a half last night
The recipe doesn’t call for butterscotch chips, but I throw in half a cup anyway. Maybe next time a whole cup. It’s been a while since I’ve made these
Sprinkle cinnamon on top right after pulling them out of the oven
I think I went overboard with the cinnamon.
Can you go overboard with cinnamon?
I guess you can
