It is nice to be back home in Cleveland. I spent a week back in my old Indiana stomping grounds; mainly eating and visiting with my family. Christmas itself was excellent, even though I only managed to scrape together 2 hours of sleep after midnight mass. The grandparents and anyone who was on our Christmas card list received this photo:
which was taken by my friend and coworker Greg Wilson a few months back. He’s a great photographer.
My fudge turned out to be the best ever this year. I think I’ve finally figured out the proper proportions of ingredients to use, and the best way to let it set. I used a 5# bag of sugar doing my holiday baking. In the realm of presents I received an animatronic chipmunk, $20 of assorted instant oatmeal packets, a toaster oven, a go set, and some slippers. I gave Debbie a 3# jar of buttons, a red cardigan, and a wallet which was part of a running gag we have.
Abraham received a mobile command station. I’m off until the 5th, time which will be spent fixing the kitchen sink [bad supply lines], doing some additional weatherproofing [using my new home repair book] and devoting some much needed time to catching up with friends and Design State.
