We met up with friends tonight and got H.C. (hot chocolate) at Burdicks. I ordered larges and neither of us could finish it. It's super rich. And delicious. We walked from Porter Square to Harvard Square and then subway-ed it back.

A Holiday Stop for Train Number Seven
Monday, December 20, 2010
It might be magical but the roads are a mess. My commute home was nearly doubled. At one point I was traveling 5mph. I went to visit some friends (to drop off a 5x7 of that black & white photo) and I got stuck on the road next to their house and my car kept sliding back and was inches from a tree. My friend got her neighbor and they directed me and pushed my car and I made it up the hill. Then I was sliding down another hill on my way home. I was glad to get home, in my flat parking lot, where I took this photo.

My coworker Diana made this for me for Christmas! I can't stop looking at it; I love it! I bumped some artwork up to the "art gallery" in my room and now this is prominently displayed in my living room. It's one of the nicest gifts I've ever gotten.

I saw these quilt-like trees on a crafty blog. They really were super easy to make and require very little fabric (it took 1 yard of muslin to make them plus the pieces of green and red). You staple them on a canvas (they are 8x10) and they are done! I've been waiting to hear if they arrived and John and Robyn got theirs in California so I'll assume they've all arrived and I'll post this picture.

Tonight I took some family photos of my friends the Burnetts. I worked on this project for Mat a few years ago. When he saw the big picture of their family above their fireplace he said, "There's a lot of love in that photo." That's how I feel about these. Even though the lighting is kind of wonky, there's a lot of love in these photos.
Note: that's Mat with his freshman year BYU dorm buddy Joe who is visiting this weekend.
I went to visit a new friend today and she showed me this tree she made this week. I love it! She said she glued "stuff" to it (from her junk drawer) and then spray painted it gold (her daughter called it her "I spy tree"). Clever! I'm going to save "stuff" to make one of these.

I saw a comment on a blog today that someone went to their Trader Joe's and there were no peppermint pretzel slims and they weren't getting anymore. Panic set in. Someone picked up 3 bags for me at lunchtime today and I picked up 3 bags after work. We'll call it food storage.

You should. You don't live near a Trader Joe's? Then move. These are amazing. The perfect mix of pretzel-peppermint-salty-sweet. I practically (practically) ate this whole bag myself. I'm going back for more.

After Jenn, Adler and I ate at Chili's in the Detroit Airport (that was Thanksgiving lunch, not Thanksgiving dinner), we rode the red tram and then went to our gate (#78--the last one in that terminal). As we approached the gate we saw a sister missionary waiting for the SLC flight (my brother John returned from his mission on Thanksgiving). She was delightful and it was really nice visiting with her.

Today my friend Alicia (the bride) called me. She needed some photos to use at her Open House in Oklahoma tonight. I got on-line and uploaded some to her Walmart account and it said they would be ready to pick up in 1-hour (amazing). Alicia called back and said they almost didn't give her the pictures. They told her they were professional pictures and she was going to need a signed release from the photographer. Wow. Alicia told them her friend took them and that she has a really nice camera. The pictures were printed using her account so I can't figure out why there was so much fuss. But hey, I'm flattered.
