I scraped real vanilla bean into warm cream and grated fresh nutmeg into pumpkin. In a few minutes I will have pumpkin creme brulee. I think this is a pretty good summary of how I feel about the holiday season.

Mu receptors

This weekend, both B and I have BOTH days off. As my mother said, it is time to remember who we are married to.

Tonight involved orecchiette with butternut squash and zucchini, roasted brussel sprouts, and prosecco. And thank you notes. It is embarrassing how delinquent we are on these.

Also, Stanford beat USC. Our household rejoices (I don't really care)!

B said, "If religion is the opiate of the masses, yarn is the opiate of the Karen...says Stalin and I." He's not wrong. Me and my ArtYarns Silk Rhapsody Glitter are getting along just fine.
