Well. I have been meaning to get here, to pop in to say holy snow!, and happy holidays, and Merry Christmas, and just generally hello, but as you can see, that didn't happen very fast. Nothing has been happening around here very quickly since Saturday night actually, when the snow and my parents' and my sister arrived in a cloud of snowdrifts and confectioners' sugar and cheer, with the exception of time, which seems to be going by at lightning speed.
And the thing is, it isn't slowing down. So since they're only here for six days, and we still have to make two kinds of cookies (these and these), one batch of this coffee cake, and many, many jars of lemon curd, not to mention a long list of neighborhood goodie runs, I think if it's okay with you, I might just do a quick hi! bye! and pop back in a few days. I think we'll all be a lot more rested then, and full, and maybe ready to talk about something un-cookie-ish, like squash or even Brussels sprouts. So until Monday, enjoy yourselves, and your families, and the snow and the cookies, and I'll see you very, very soon. Merry Christmas, everyone.
