Today is all about our gaming group’s Christmas party. I made experimental cookies. It was much neater when Mr. Food created them on tv, but my effect is more or less the same, although I had to hose down the kitchen. I’ve also got chili, oyster stew, scalloped corn, and sandwiches ready to go.
Bryon and I had our gift exchange this morning, as we’ll be away on the day next week. He bought me a beautiful Mouse Guard statue, as well as the role playing book, which has some new art from creator David Petersen. Also appreciated were Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style, a more authentic Man from U.N.C.L.E. soundtrack, and candies that will be rationed so Weight Watcher girl can actually have them.
Back to prepping. Tomorrow will be the visit to the in-laws and an old friend. Monday is my last full day at work until next year. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday there should be a lot of writing, and Thursday night we take off for Disney, at which point I’ll be quiet for a number of days.
Hope you’re all having great weekends out there.
