These days, chez nous

Thursday, November 15, 2012


There's been a lot of cozy-ish stuff going on around here these days.  We've hung a few little Christmas lights in the living room, and I'm hoping that all the baking, knitting and cinnamon candle burning I've been doing lately will somehow will Christmas  to get here faster.  

After shelling half of the pecans we picked on Saturday, I had the urge to bake some chocolate chip and pecan cookies late last night, which we all know is never a good idea.  Somehow they managed to turn out ok, but I've decided that pecans just don't belong in a chocolate chip cookie.  I guess I'll have to find another use for the rest of our pickings (pecan brittle, anyone?).  

Oh, and I've already busted out the Christmas music.  I know I'm not the only one...

No, nuts to not belong in Chocolate chip cookies. Neither does oatmeal, in my opinion!

And you caught me listening to christmas music, eh?

Oh, you are SO not the only one ;) As I said to my father, "No I haven't 'taken out' the christmas music; it never gets put away." ;p And your place looks absolutely lovely. So cosy!
