Today I shoveled snow. A Sisyphean task, since it snowed all day and the wind gusted up to 35 mph. I’ll be shoveling more tomorrow. At about 2pm, my neighbor measured 16″. I’m afraid to guess how deep it is now. The neighborhood lights certainly look nice reflecting off it, though.
Wrote greetings on a box of holiday cards that will be distributed at a local hospital as part of the adopt-a-charity our office is doing this season.
Attempted to make toffee graham crisps. Realized too late that I had no brown sugar. Following the instructions found online, I used white sugar and molasses as a substitute, but the toffee doesn’t seem to be hardening. Tastes fine, though. What’s not to like about graham crackers, butter, sugar and pecans?
Now I’m sitting on the couch, listening to the Goofy Cat purr (she’s draped over the back of the couch, even though she knows I hate when she sits there), thinking that I ought to make truffles and wrap presents. But my belly is full of failed toffee grahams and I think I’m going to find something to read or reread instead.
My holiday gift ordering has been less than successful. The All-Edge Brownie pan that I ordered from Think Geek hasn’t arrived…but according to their tracking, it was delivered on Monday. Uh, no. And the album I ordered for The Biochemist was supposed to be delivered the 15th, then the 17th, then th 21st, now definitely not before 24th and maybe never. Customer service for the album has been useless. Waiting to hear from ThinkGeek. Grrr.
