Wow, after two weeks of being locked out of my blog because of a horrible WordPress (yes, WP I am very upset with you right now. we need to talk.) error, I’m back! My sweet husband seems to have fixed the log-in problem, after much stressing on my part.
We had a wonderful Christmas break, much of it spent trapped inside by the 16 inches of snow clogging the roads outside. I baked and baked–chocolate pistachio biscotti, cranberry cornmeal biscotti, amaretti, peppermint bark, Christmas wreath sugar cookies, shortbread, and a homemade hot chocolate mix. I packaged these up with pretty cellophane and gave them as gifts (of course I forgot about the picture). It was so nice to have the time to leisurely bake and enjoy being cozy inside. That is until six days go by and you start to feel trapped and your husband’s 30th birthday is canceled because of the weather!
I took the full two weeks off from work. I’ve been here for nearly two years now and have never taken that much time off. It was lovely and I feel completely detoxed, although life back at work has been rough–paying the price for my free time!
Hopefully my posting will not be so sporadic in the new year!
