Let's talk about the pleasures and puzzles of the smaller mystery--mystery novels and other fiction--and the bigger one--life.
I liked the berries on that bush, and the kind of abstract quality. Otherwise, nothin' special. Just clickin'.Saw a movie tonight that I didn't care for, though the acting was terrific. "Rachael Got Married." Or Gets Married, or something like that. Good popcorn!
The picture kind of cool when it's enlarged. Kind of dizzying, maybe.
Sleepy. I want to write, but can't get my head into the mode. Maybe I should just let it ride; I don't have a deadline looming & I can focus on holiday baking.
Holiday baking? Oh yeah, I guess that time IS nearing. I keep forgetting what month it is...Back from a day in SF. Tired, full of too much food, but saw Alcatraz and Fisherman's Whaft. Into Chinatown tomorrow. Going to bed early - I'm worn out in every way. Had a nice time. Sleepy Saturday (tomorrow) to everyone. Have a great weekend. Thanks for the berries, NP!
Holiday baking? That's Christmas, among other festivals, isn't it? ('Holiday' to us is the same as 'vacation' to you, so I get confused.)The only kind of baking I do these days is Christmas cake so the daughters came round a couple of weeks ago and we had a huge stir-up and the house smelled wonderful. Now I need to remember to feed my cake with brandy so that when it's cut, it staggers off the plate singing Silent Night!Have a good day, all. I'm on duty at an Art sale in the local library - at least I'll have plenty to read if customers are sparse.
Really nice pic, Nancy but where's waldo. ;)Morning all.
Morning, all! Lazy, sleepy morning here. Off to visit best buddy and fellow writer Carla C today and talk writing and fannish things.Y'all behave now... ;-)
Nicola, Christmas Cake...that would be fruitcake on this side of the pond, yes?FarF, I know that feeling, the mode problem anyway. I pretty much never have the impulse to bake.Everybody else, hi (waves) hope you all have a lovely weekend.Got the new book kick started yesterday. My brain wasn't braining properly, but it turns I can write Ravirn and Cerice sniping at each other without engaging the frontal lobes. I think that means it's definitely time for a new series. I'm gonna see if I can't get this one knocked off in about three months so I can go play in other worlds.
Good morning Nancy and everyone.This is a slow day starting for me. I'm just getting the first cup of coffee and it doesn't seem to be helping. Maybe by the time I get through with a pot of coffee, I'll feel more like doing something.We have a nice sunny day and the temps will be in the high 60's today.Hope everyone has a good w/e in front of them.
Yup, Kelly, Christmas cake is fruit cake, but this isn't just any old fruitcake. It's actually a Canadian recipe and this is the one I use for wedding cakes (for family and friends only). Think 'alcoholic bakery' - it has port in it; it's fed with brandy over several months after baking; a cup of maple syrup, orange marmalade, and a ton of nuts and dried fruit among the other artery-popping ingredients; topped off with marzipan and icing (almond paste and frosting) And scraping out the mixing bowl is the best ever!
What is the bush with the red berries? I like the wispy grass too.
Sleep, me too, far, only it's night, so at least I don't have to stay up all day.Maria, how nice to spend a day with a pal! I went to a "bead show" today with Porch Sally. It was hard to see the single beads for the forest of beads.Glad you enjoy SF, Beth.Kelly, three months? I know you've done that before (I think), but still. . . ::staggers off to collapse in admiration::Nicola, I love the Brit phrase, "stir-up." Cake, please.Andi, lol! Waldo ate all those berries and died. What? That was mean? ha. NOW where's Waldo?Jim, I dunno!Waving at family man! I hope you got some chair time.
