I feel like I've just woken up from a weeks worth of butter-and-sugar-induced hibernation. I hope everyone had a lovely holiday and is recovering from their own sugar-crashed states. Here is what I have been up to lately:
Christmas shopping at the Gateway...
I love walking into the Union Pacific building
and marveling at the height of the ceiling,
and the echos of the black-and-white tiled floor.
Roasting chestnuts on Christmas night.
Katenzunger edelbitter-schokolade...literally "cat's tongue chocolates!"
Christmas recovery in the form of questionable fiction for cold winter nights,
and treating myself to lunch at the Copper Onion.
House-cured pickles to start. Brilliant.
Scandinavian Christmas crafts...clove-scented oranges.
