GUISE, ONLY ONE MONTH UNTIL CHRISTMAS!
Meanwhile, I’m finishing some discounted Halloween cookies while listening to Christmas music. A Pillsbury Dough Boy meets Michael Buble type evening, if you will.
Snow is beginning it’s decent on the North Shore mountains, Christmas events are making their way onto my news feed, and stores have pulled out their holiday stock. I’ve put away my sweet cinnamon pumpkin candle and have started burning ‘Tis the Season again. The sights, scents, and sounds are making us incredibly excited for Christmas. My brain, while it should be concentrating on organic molecules and microbiology (yuck) has been occupied with an endless list of holiday baking I want to accomplish. So many cookies, so little time. Why is winter break less than 2 weeks this year? Is that even legal? Unacceptable. Despicable. Cruel.
