under the weather and over the moon

So ya, I've been sick. But I am willing myself to be better because tomorrow I'm leaving for NYC to have another x-mas in New York. I wasn't going to go, but then my sister decided to come for a visit in January instead of now and the ticket was cheap!!

So off I go to visit my favourite kids. Tomio has been saying he doesn't want gifts this year, only Jessica. And it will be a surprise! I'm sure to come back exhausted but happy to have made some more wonderful memories with my little goofballs. It's going to be a very Xena xmas!!

Oh yeah, and this will be on tonight at 9:00 pm. This show is not something I would watch - ever - and I'm not encouraging you to watch either. But if you're interested in seeing me on it my bit comes on in the first 5 minutes and is pretty ridiculous and awesome (if I do say so myself). But beware, after that it gets pretty offensive, and no, I had no idea what the rest of the content would be at the time.

Hopefully it will turn up on youtube and I can post it on its own for all my fans out there (and by that I mean family and friends of course)! Love you all!

UPDATE: here's the link I'm on just before the 2 minute mark

I miss my swans

I wonder how my swan family is doing. They had their fair share of drama this year.

Bella sent some photos from the marina. She & Doug are the only ones still out there.

I won't have time to visit them until the new year. I can't believe it's only been a month since the boat came out of the water. Winter is here!!

impetigo again?

I love a good brunch. I particularly love the green eggs and ham at Mildred's!! Anne and I like to try new places but this delicious meal was calling to both of us this weekend.

And I was really enjoying the fact that my face had finally cleared of all of the weirdness that has been affecting it for the last 6 weeks.

But this morning it appears that impetigo is back - nooooooooooooooo!! I really don't want to do any more antibiotics, cause, well, you know. Any ideas out there?

ooops, I did it again

Remember back in May when I was pretending to be in France and I tried to make a clafouti? Well, just as a reminder it was supposed to look like this:

but came out like this:

I love this stuff and it seems like it should be so easy to make. So I tried a new recipe from the Nourishing Gourmet (lots of yummines overe there) - and this is what is should look like this time:

and, um well, here's my attempt:

The first one was so burnt to get the middle to set it was inedible, and this one is both overcooked and unbelievably greasy - gross! Is it the the pie plate, is it me?

change is afoot

And no, I am not getting a kitten.

I just couldn't resist a photo of a kitten in a Frye boot!

winter's first slush

Here we are again right on track with last year.

I biked on Saturday and then Sunday brought us this loveliness. I'm really not "sporty" enough to ride in the winter so it's time for the bike to go into hibernation.

Thank you sweet little bike for all the ease you brought to grocery shopping, the rides to work, the mad dashes to the ferry docks, and the tooling around on the island. We shall reunite in the spring!

Happy Hanukkah!!

To all my Jewish friends and family!!

I'm gonna try my hand at making some potato-leek latkes for brunch on the weekend!

I'm gonna skip the caviar, although I think Marcel would love them served this way.

ebay still loves me

It's the simple things in life that make me happy. Yesterday I treated myself to a massage. Perry made me a yummy dinner. And this arrived in the mail!

I'm having a crappy week

I don't normally complain to you all on here but I'm having a ridiculous week. My door knob came off in my hands when I was late for work, I'm having some weird health stuff and some people have been mean to me.

Grinning and bearing it is getting harder to do. How soon are the holidays?
