Above, my little one with her own blooms after her very first Nutcracker. She was an adorable "flower petal" in a very clever casting of the 6,7 year olds. At the end, when Clara is back at home, the little ones are sitting by her feet and as Clara drifts back to sleep, the little ones stretch out and yawn and lay down to sleep, then the curtain falls. It was so precious and the ballet ended with smiles from everyone. Below, just a random picture of a chocolate terrine (white, milk, and dark) my sister whipped together for Thanksgiving. The fresh and quite amazing raspberry coulis is not in the photo.
And while I'm posting random photos, this was the eggnog I enjoyed after my beer-making endeavor. Though beer is not my thing, a warm eggnog with a generous splash of rum is very much my thing. Update on the beer: success! The kolsch was tasty and holds a history/origin my husband found interesting.
Also other odds and ends I did not got a chance to post earlier - above: a fall scene, below, euphorbia rudolph. I love this beautiful guy. Anyone else grow it?
