Today is a quiet contemplative day so there's just me and some pictures and thinking about this week's cooking that I am excited for. It's Steve's birthday on Wednesday, and I have lots of goodies planned, among them deep fried oysters and champagne. And then there's the all day eating and drinking that is planned for Thursday. Don't forget the firewood! The wood stove will be cranking and some sparkly lights will certainly be involved. We will be listening to records, sipping brandy, and playing games. Delight!

Christmas is coming and I'm not that worried about it, which is amazing for me. I might even be a wee bit excited for it. Excited is a strong word, however.
