Today I thought I would share something a little different from I usually share.
I want to take a moment to thank each and everyone of you. When I began blogging, I was unsure where this adventure would go. I did not tell anyone I blogged, for I was uncertain and afraid – what would I write about; would anyone want to read what I wrote; how long would this interest last (a few months?).
Yet here I am almost two years later, and I now have 100 followers. Compared to some big name blogs this is pretty crummy, but it makes my heart swell. I have intentionally not told any of my friends that I blog, and most of my extended family is still in the dark. So each of you is a complete stranger to me. Yet, you encourage me to keep writing.
Lately, I have been sharing a lot of my knitting projects; if you stopped by to see them there are more coming. But I feel I have neglected my other interests. I have several posts planned, but am struggling to find the time to sit and write. I dream of days when I will be able to do that.
If this is your first time stopping by or you follow me, thank you for encouraging me to continue to share the projects that I am working on. If you have just stumbled upon this page, you may want to check out some of my top posts.
Today is National Eggnog Day! Whether you drink it straight or with a little rum, it is a Christmas staple. My parents even mixed it with Coca-Cola. Eggnog can also be used to flavor this delightful quick bread.
Christmas would not be complete without gingerbread men. They are the iconic Christmas cookie.
Not only can I not spell pfeffernuese, some days I have a hard time pronouncing it.
I first learned of pferffernuesse when my dad was stationed in Germany with the Air Force. I absolutely love these little spice cookies. Unlike the traditional cookies, I dip mine in a glaze. This adds a little extra sweetness.
