After the holiday
Here are two more finished red scarves. One more to go, and then I start with some quickie Christmas knits. I have a request for a willy warmer(for a friend of a friend), but that will have to wait till Valentine's day.
Yesterday, I finished the Christmas cards, addressed, stamped and sealed them, and dragged them out to my patient postal person. She's a DEAR!
Then I took the thouroughly pulverized vanilla wafers and commenced with the rum balls.
This is what I use for rum balls. Note the microwave. Saves all that messy double-boilering for the melted chocolate chips. Note the quart of rum. Yum. Note the normous bowls. I make rum balls in quantity!
And here we see the result of my labors. These tins are FULL of rum balls. About twenty POUNDS of rum balls. Now they ripen for two weeks, then they get portioned out and shipped away (except for a few that go to work with me, a few for the locusts that DH works with, and a few for the elegant ladies of the Ladies' Knitting and Philosophy group.)
Oh, crap! It's snowing again. Punishment for rum ball hubris no doubt. Apologies to everyone who loves this downy white precipitation, but all I see is freezy skid stuff. I gotta drive up the hill tomorrow to take GED tests to the jail. The road crews had better sand the heck out of every hill in Oregon City is all I can say. Else you will hear the wails of anguish and the terrified cursing all the way to Boston and points north.
Does anyone else scream in their car? Alone? While driving? Can you keep your eyes open while doing so?
