"Thy leaves are so unchanging..."

Ask and you just might receive. Ben and I were given this beautiful, lively-looking (yet artificial) Christmas tree by a generous
and nice young woman from Craigslist! Here it is in our living room, all dressed up.

And speaking of generosity--sometime during an afternoon spent smothering the tree in ornaments and strings of lights, we found an enormous basket of vegan chocolate on our doorstep. A gift from Aunt Nancy and Uncle Ken! Now, Ben and I love fancy dark chocolate just about as much as we love good coffee, so we are in heaven. Our favorite bit so far is this chocolate bar with a cocoa percentage higher than the Minnesota Bar Exam passage rate.

Oh, and before I forget, check out the cutest ornament ever. My husband made it about twenty-five years ago:

  1. It's been awhile since I've been blogging. A lot going on with Christmas stuff, but I caught up on your posts and I'm going to try that cake!
    I am sooooo sorry that your ornament is late. I've never received it from the Etsy seller, and have left her messages but... who knows if I'll ever get it. But I've sent you a substitute, it is a little snowman that I have really enjoyed for years. He's now yours to laugh at each Christmas. I've stuck in another ornament that was supposed to accompany the one that didn't come in. It has more to do with an interest in your life.
    Again , sorry, but hope you'll enjoy them when they arrive.
