I am very happy that winter has finally arrived and now there is fresh glistening snow on the ground. I smell the joy of sledding ahead of me yet.
***I have been listening to a lot of Celtic music lately, and right now I am listening to "Fallen Tears" It accurately sums up my yesterday when I heard that one of my favorite actors, Alan Rickman, died.
***Yesterday I made Chocolate Lava Cakes and they were the most delicious disaster I have ever tasted. Every bit of the baking turned out to look just like the pictures, until, I turned the cakes over to pat them onto a plate and and all of the "Lava" oozed out onto the plate, with the cake part still firmly stuck to the pan. They were still delicious with whipped cream and strawberries!
***I am extremely excited that I have finally found the perfect crochet poncho pattern, I have been looking for a pretty one for ages.
***I am absolutely up for the challenge of making English muffins tomorrow. I have wanted to make them for the longest time and now that I've found an easy recipe I'm ready to start creating. I calculated that making English Muffins the traditional way (which is what I'll be doing) should take four and a half hours, since I'll be frying them on a griddle like the people from the olden days used to.
***I'm feeling perfectly old fashioned today, like I should be wearing bustles and bows. Recently one of my friends taught me how to dance the Virginia Reel, and the classic Waltz, and the Soldier's Joy. All of which my sister and I have been dancing to.
***For my literature in school I am reading Pride and Prejudice. I love the quaint dialogue even though it's hard to understand what I'm reading at times. I have realized that though it's taking me a while to read the book I think Jane Austen was a wonderful author. It's sad that writing books wasn't considered proper for women back then.
***My brain feels considerably emptier now so I'll end this post with a favorite new quote.
Every day might not be good, but there's something good in everyday. Anonymous
