the day after...

so, here we are...all that build-up, angst, and anticipation over in one fell swoop!

like I said previously I haven't had the best attitude lately, but after a series of self-portraits yesterday (yes, what a dork! hee!) I tried hard to embrace the holiday...

I appear to be happy, yesh? (must be the better living thru chemistry. all natural, of course!!! LOL!) afterwards, I made myself a cup of tea, some pie crust (superb!), and baked some cookies (yummm, buttery & shortbread-like) and then I had no idea what to do with myself!

I called Als, since I had threatened to visit and after a quick discussion, told her I'd be arriving with ingredients for dinner. she was tres happy! I spent a cozy afternoon listening to grandkid stories, talking with her, Joe, and Alma June, and prepping dinner. The feast included Cornish Game Hens with Garlic and Rosemary, sauteed garlicky winter greens (fabulous, btw!), mashed yellow potatoes & apple pie for desert.

evidence of my cooking prowess! and my belly button! LOL!

I appreciated that Als, Joe and Alma June were more than willing to be my guinea pigs. seriously, a successful meal!!!

again, I find myself with too much time on my hands! eeee!!! contemplating some photobooth strips of me and the Cupcake to scrapbook, finishing that December 25th page, eating some more junk fuds, soaking up some vitamin D, maybe some laundry, LOL!!!

merry merry day after to you!!!
