hanging out with alisa

'Twas fun with Alisa yesterday. We just all hung out in various locales and TALKED over endless cups of coffee and hot apple cider and hot chocolate all day and through the evening. The time went by way too fast. And yes, I actually cooked! :-) And made a loaf of braided challah bread from scratch, something I haven't done in years. I actually had intended to use my bread machine but something was wrong with the turn-paddly-thingy so I ended up going the traditional method.

Making bread is wonderfully therapeutic (all that kneading, you know) but it's sure a pain to clean up afterwards! Jeff's fixed the bread machine, though, so I'll try that out this week.

More later...(I'm writing this at 4 a.m., insomnia-stricken, so am probably not too coherent)

p.s. Hey, Inklings has over 45,000 subscribers now, woohoo!
