I've been reading about the rains and mudslides out there....hope you are safely away from a hill or embankment, Gail.

We have rain coming here Sunday, then more seasonal temps later next week, but I consider the unseasonably warm weather we have been having a gift...so that I can keep moving that woodpile.

Not done yet, but it is getting there. I have enough firewood, still, for this year and probably two more.

As warm as this winter is turning out to be, that wood will last a long time. I was dodging snow storms this time last year.

Yep...a single fire a day keeps the cave-like feel from settling on a house that is otherwise unheated.

Plus....the flame flickering behind the glass is so comforting to look at.

Doing brunch here tomorrow, and digging around for my Nana's sour cream coffee cake recipe....I came across this little gem from decades ago.

This makes the yummiest, richest hot buttered rum you have ever had, and will warm you to your toes....stores in your freezer, also makes really lovely gifts in jars.

Hot Buttered Rum Mix

1 lb butter, softened
4 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
1 1/2 cups honey
1/4 cup rum extract
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cloves

Mix together thoroughly, spoon into jars or other containers suitable for the freezer. Freeze.

To serve: 1 heaping tablespoon batter in mug, 1-2 ounces rum, boiling water to fill.

Stir, sip and be warmed.


Maggie

I have had a new toilet paper holder sitting on my bathroom vanity for at least a month.

I started it, realized I would have to drill new holes....and that was the end of that. I am so not interested in those kinds of things.

There it has sat, but company tomorrow requires the toilet paper not be sitting on the vanity while the holes of the old holder glare at all visitors to the bathroom.

Pulled out the rechargeable drill, and just did it.

Some men, unfortunately, are not what I would refer to as 'tool using animals'. But yeah, the ladies certainly can do this stuff if they want to..."it ain't all brute force and testosterone" as my daddy often said. Sometimes finesse and skill is the important part.

There's no finesse and skill going on here, just determination.
