Don't be an egg-faker

Lately, it seems 'doing' has been much higher on my priority list than reflecting and writing. Typically, I find time for both, and I've been beating myself up a little for not doing it. I decided today, that I was saving it up for one big end-of-the-year post. No, I don't actually have that planned, I think it's just another way to procrastinate.

I haven't really been any busier than usual but I have been more tired and I'm blaming that on the stupid lack of daylight. Can I just say that I STILL hate this time of year? I do NOT understand the need for dark at 5pm. How exactly does this help ANYthing/ANYone. It doesn't. Anyone who says different is a liar AND they just plain suck.

I still have not gotten around to baking (or even deciding what I am going to bake for her - leave your suggestions in the comments please!) for the delightful Ms. Kaply and that makes me very sad. I have not finished my Christmas present for my mom, and if I did Christmas cards I'd be really far behind. I do have a christmas light adorned palm tree that sings and dances to rocking around the christmas tree when you press her hand/frond. It is the most awesome christmas tree ever.

I'm training for my marathon, competing my dog and horseback riding. I am busy. And inordinately happy. At christmastime and every other time, that is decidely, enough.

One cannot ask for more, unless it is to win the lottery.....LOL

I don't bake, don't do cards and if I had my way, I'd not decorate either. Bah humbug.(but Merry Christmas to you!)

I'm sure you meant to say "competing and winning". Or qualifying. Or whatever you call it when you get one of those awesome medals.

It looks good on ya too.

And, uh, yeah... WTF is an egg-faker?? Is that an anagram for somethin'? Lessee... keg... no... umm... farkegge ... sounds like some-a that German cheese or something. 'Cept if it was German it seems like there oughta be an "I" in there somewhere. Or a "U". Or something with an umlaut.

Ah, screw the anagram. I'm diggin' that you're happy. So much.

I highly recommend butterscotch/chocolate/peanut butter chip cookies.

Toffee bars. Just enough flour to hold together some butter, add sugar, bake, and top with melted chocolate chips.

Slice a hunk off, eat, and go have a heart attack. ;)
