Safe and Warm (as ugly as I seem)

This year’s Christmas card – the usual quick block print method- had some surprises.

Hand-marbling paper is always a little unpredictable. The red and green paint I used in the marbling bath left a select few nutcrackers looking like they were dying in a bloody storm of gunfire. I sent those cards out anyway, but only to friends who would (hopefully) understand.

After a weirdly warm spell in Denver, it feels like our snow will come in tonight.

I’m ready for it. I’m making fruitcake tonight using a variation on Alton Brown’s recipe- no nasty jellied fruits, just good dried fruit, lots of nuts and even more brandy.

Trying very hard to be of good cheer.

Hope you are safe and warm who ever you are, where ever you are.
