I am envious of the cooking time! But not of the snow...too much running around this week to enjoy that! And while I'm coveting, Krystal, very nice on the food processor. I've been angling for a bigger one but I also asked Santa for the pasta maker attachment to my KitchenAid, and he does not have a limitless budget, you know.

Adding insult to injury, after juggling and rescheduling everything, court got continued. I wish I had a free afternoon, but I'm way behind, so am headed to the jail, then to reports. I hope you all have a wonderful day.

Mike, are you going to post our FitDay tree? We have new folks to add!

Glad you got yours up, Jenn.

Pasta attachment for the KitchenAid?? No way!! You have to do it "Old School" and crank it by hand! Then, you've already burned a bunch of calories by the time you eat all of that great pasta! Hubby and I are making homemade cheese ravs for New Year's this weekend... I make him do the work if he wants the product! lol

Thanks Quinn It's not enough I have to put up with everyone posting photos of their squares and or cookies but you talk about them too!
Ok my Mom has squares in the freezer but they will stay there until Christmas. Oh yeah my Aunt is giving her some today AND probably going to my uncle's place for dessert some day this week.

Nothing crazy has happened (like you see in movies, like the house shaking, etc), but there is definitely something not normal going on.
It's interesting (and natural) that you tried to shield them but that the kids picked it up. You also mentioned Mystie picking it up; one of my cats did in one case too. It's not always like the movies - sometimes it's a glimpse of something, something (in one case for me, chairs) moved, even a chill air.

Do you feel a positive or negative presence or is it neutral? Are you still comfortable there?

Ok could we please stop talking about pasta? For some reason, that's getting me (not the cookies surprisingly) and now I have a craving for a huge bowl of whole wheat pasta pesto...

Krystal, thank for your kind words. You're such a wonderful presence here yourself; so glad to have you onboard. Plus you'll be proud: bleary from lack of sleep, I actually cut up veggies, had an egg white omelet for breakfast with some and made a salad to take to class. That attachment would have come in handy...

Love what you said, Cassie: "but Santa doesn't have an unlimited budget" lol... I hear that...neither does Yenta Claus (my Jewish version.)

I'll have to burn calories another way. I have deQuervain's in my wrist, tennis elbow, and shoulder impingement. There is no way I am cranking by hand, unless I want to lose a limb. That is why I have Otto .

I wish I could. I just got some new software to do that type of stuff but it's on the high end (way too advanced for me) and just starting off is consuming my time. If I can figure it out before then, I will put one together. If not, next year you can count on an awesome one that will be 3D animation.

I feel that it's negative. It gives me a creepy feeling. Tori things that I'm dealing with a poltergeist. I have no clue, it's not invited or welcomed! I am confortable, only because it doesn't happen that often and it doesn't seem to get worse.

Hey guys, I'm here, too... bit late. I've got a busy week trying to finalize a research report about my last 7 months of work.

My goals are the usual... once again, just trying to avoid the crap food.
