Thanks, Dee.

We are a talkative bunch.

SoberLeigh 12-19-2015 07:18 PM

Goodnight, Octsobers; see you tomorrow.

Hi guys, breakfast for dinner: banana walnut cinnamon pancakes, maple chicken apple sausage, and tangerines from my mom's tree.

Mom gave me another bag of walnuts, so I spent a couple hours shelling and came out with another 6 cups or so. Into the freezer they go!

Also made some heavy hand cream because my skin has been very dry. I melted down some of that chocolate body butter I made a couple months ago (I have a bunch in the fridge), added some beeswax and honey and lavender oil, stirred like a maniac to keep the honey in suspension as it cooled, and came out with some great stuff. My hands are so much happier now. I made some lip balm from that body butter the other day, which is good, and I'm thinking of making a lotion bar tomorrow too because why not? That butter mix is the perfect base for all kinds of good stuff.

So it was a productive day in the kitchen. I hope all is well for you guys.

Man, you were busy, Briar.

I love breakfast for dinner.

Arbor 12-19-2015 08:26 PM

Sounds goooooood Briar. :)

Thought you were going to bed Leigh? I'm contemplating it myself.

Briar 12-19-2015 10:21 PM

And a funny thing...my husband had a rough week at work and is contemplating some major career changes. It's a tough time for him, and I want to be supportive, but our communication can be a little awkward. Solution? Write it on a cake:

Message delivered. Marriage reinforced. Husband happy. This is how Briar gets it done.

That's beyond lovely. And very creative. :)

The heat broke. My cat and I are beyond grateful.

Love it Briar! Happy the heat broke Venus. Started Fargo last night. I did NOT need another TV show. Slept in today. That was awesome. Time to jump in the shower. Good morning all.

Briar 12-20-2015 08:13 AM

I'm grateful the heat has broken and the two of you are more comfortable V!

Fantastic, Briar, simply fantastic.

SoberLeigh 12-20-2015 08:38 AM

Good morning/night, Octsobers.

Have a great day, all.

Arbor 12-20-2015 09:19 AM

That would win my heart Briar. And a sweet treat to boot! Your hubby is in the wine industry, right? Maybe a career change would be good for you and your family. Funny how things work out sometimes.

Hello gang. Getting busy with holiday baking and errands, but wanted to say hello!

SoberLeigh 12-20-2015 01:06 PM

Hi, phoebe!!!!

Is it good? Don't tell me. ;)

It is 59 degrees. I am in heaven. Still really tired though. Pretty sure I had heat exhaustion by the end of that. I was very dizzy and in a lot of muscle pain. All good now. Until next time. :)

Hi phoebe love, and good morning all. :grouphug:

SoberLeigh 12-20-2015 01:33 PM

Wow; that is what I call a break in the heat, v. So glad for you.

Briar 12-20-2015 05:19 PM

Arbor I agree, a change would be good. I really would like him to get out of the alcohol business. It would help me close the door on that part of my life.

SoberLeigh 12-20-2015 06:54 PM

An early goodnight from me, dear Octsobers.

See you tomorrow.
