Figgy Cookies!

The finished cookies! All pretty and cooling

Rolling up the figgy goo in the sweet dough.

Popping them in the oven!

My Huge mixer that my Dad fixed up for me. It was my Grandmothers - and he christened it "The White Bat."

Figs, honey and spices ready to be blended in the Cuisinart.

Mornings, Evening and Miles apart

A Year of Mornings
A Year of Evenings

And their new project: 3191 Miles Apart.

Snow Angels on the Parkway

So we had snow here... lots of snow. All of the parkway overpasses were barricaded and closed. The whole town was closed. So Paul Darien and I went for a walk down and out of the neighborhood, up and over the southern-most overpass of the parkway. We were the first to lay tracks on all that fresh snow... and also... um... the first to do a snow angel in the middle of the parkway!!

This would be me - on the parkway... doing the snow angle thing...

And Darien... she's got the natural camouflage thing going on.

Some of the snazzy snowmen in our neighborhood.

And the funniest one we saw today - over in the 5 Points area - a Dalek Snowman!! AWESOME!!
