Some things last week:
I did all the baking of the Christmas cookies and gave them out to friends and neighbours. You can read more about the different cookies I made here (including one that’s spicy, as in spicy hot).
We had breakfast for dinner last night, at a local diner that’s been around for ages.
I’m making a small amigurumi character each for the boys’ stocking stuffers. Here’s a Minecraft axolotl for the younger one. The older one gets a Minecraft creeper but I haven’t finished sewing all the parts yet! That’s the worst part of amigurumi for me, all that sewing :p
Dead-end memories – Banana Yoshimoto (pictured here with a Nespresso and a homemade lemon biscotti)
The West Wing
I still haven’t downloaded a new audiobook yet! Anything to recommend?
Eating and Drinking:
Well, that biscotti and coffee right there in that photo!
I’d like to make some Singapore-style chicken rice this week. Also, later today, probably a cauliflower and sausage mac and cheese.
Joan Is Okay – Weike Wang
One Italian Summer – Rebecca Serle

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.
