Frosty Monday morning

It's been frosty in the mornings lately. It burns off pretty quick, but it sure is pretty while it lasts (cold too!)

This morning I picked up all my work from the shop in Auburn where I took part in a show back in October (the work had to hang for 2 months). I didn't sell a single thing (other than some cards the night of the show) so although the people were very nice I would not be inclined to do that show again. If I don't break even, that pretty well diminishes my desire to do a show again. So now I have a box full of art stuff I need to sell...gah. OMG, I have Christmas ornaments!!! I keep forgetting about those! I need to post them on line and maybe with some luck and a few small miracles I might even sell one or two. Hmm, perhaps I'll try to get to that today....

It's almost time to make the infamous Christmas candy (chocolate dipped peanut butter balls, aka "Buckeye Balls" which cracks me up now because my brother and sis-in-law now have a dog named Buckeye...). It's a recipe I got from my friend K (former roomie) while we were in high school, and I've made them every year since then. I think I will also try a new recipe this year...chocolate peppermint fudge perhaps?

Okay, back to work...

Buckeye Balls are the Best...however I cannot make them anymore since I live with someone who is deathly allergic to the peanut butter...but they are so delicious!

Glad to know I contributed to something being your roomie all those years!

Hey, you made lots of contributions...like, contributing to my delinquency! HA HA. :-) (I'm kidding...) Perhaps you'll just have to come over and get some Buckeye Balls!!

Deliquency...that you learned on your own...coming home past 9:30 PM....what would your mother say!

Just kidding :-)

I was thinking that I definitely need to make a visit down there...see your animals. :-)

Heh heh... Actually I remember getting "home" at 2am a couple times! Of course that just meant I was over at the ceramics studio in charge of the kiln... "Hmm, Katherine must be out with 'Art' or 'Clay' again..."

I'll send you an email when I get the Buckeye Balls done, just in case you want the visit to coincide... Should have time to make them by the end of next week. ;-)
