“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness; it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity; it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness; it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair; we had everything before us, we had nothing before us; we were all going directly to Heaven, we were all going the other way.”

~~Charles Dickens

This quote totally sums up my year.

What sums up  yours?


December 30

So I don’t have much to say today.

All the partying and eating and lack of sleeping has caught up with me in a big way.

I can say that my furnace is fixed~~hallelujah!

That I still don’t have my house all straightened up.

That I have a ton of laundry to fold.

That I really need to take down the tree so that I can watch TV from my computer chair and play Bejeweled Blitz at the same time.

And that I don’t want to do any of the above.

As I type, it is a whole 54º in the house.

I am surmising that either the pilot needs some lighting, or the furnace needs some fixing.

Either way, it is cold!

And difficult to think.

And difficult to type.

Maybe I should bake another Pecan Pie, but not just any old pecan pie.

This is Dories favorite pecan pie.

It has cinnamon, and espresso and chocolate in it, and let me tell you, it is out of this world good.

I took it to our families Christmas party, and everyone loved it.

If you’d like to make it, go check out Beth’s blog Someone’s in the Kitchen with Brina. The recipe is there.

Me? I’m gonna go huddle with the cats until it gets warm in here.
