It was another weekend full of working so it was a real treat when Justin and I decided to go to a lighting ceremony at our local park. Too bad I got the day wrong, LOL! Still, there was plenty to see, including the most impressively Christmas-decorated house I have ever seen, which indluded this large nativity scene surrounded by lights! So impressive! At our house, we did manage to get a wreath up :)
Spent some time baking over the weekend for upcoming birthday-ness (I assume he doesn't read this site) and it's been a while since I've baked and a long while since I've tried a new recipe but the beginnings above turned into Oatmeal Raisin cookies and I think they turned out quite well (phew). Although I squished the balls down into a more cookies shape and cooked them for 12 instead of 10 minutes, which made them more cooked and just a little crisp on the edges but still nice and chewy. Now...the key will be to resist eating them all!
We had a very busy weekend going to Reg's kung fu school demonstration (poor Reg missed his performance by five minutes because he had to go to morning class for school) and last night I played a real night of D&D. Created my demon-blood barbarian character (Tiefling, like Hell-Boy but a woman) and totally kicked ass. I took two poundings to the chest without armour, got thrown out a window and stopped a magic user thanks to my fire resistance. It was epic and awesome!
