She created those candy canes with croissant dough and baked them to perfection. I enjoyed one with my coffee and several people piled into the shop for coffee, along with some Christmas carolers who also showed up and serenaded us with the songs we won't have to listen to for another year. It was lovely.
When I got home, a neighbor brought up a super wonderful sour cherry almond yogurt cake for the two of us. Oh, it was so good that I thanked her this morning telling her I am now wearing my Christmas gift. Actually, I still have a piece or two, but it was simply delightful and hard to stop eating once I started.
We sat down in front of the TV and enjoyed a favorite show together, and then before I knew it, the day was over and it was close to bedtime. Since it's a struggle at this time of year for me to stay up very late, I was in bed long before he was. I got up early this morning (as usual) and headed out to Lake Whatcom to meet the ladies for our Saturday walk. Since we meet at 8:00am and the sun comes up around then, we were the only people there when we started our six-mile walk.
