I want to apologize to everyone for not keeping up with all of your blogs the past few days. The baking frenzy completely wiped me out. I was up til 1:30 in the morning Sunday and Monday night. Last night I went to bed at 7pm and I am still exhausted. The last week of school before our break as well as the regular Christmas stress has not helped.
Anyways, I have been peeking in on everyone's blogs and will try to comment more thoroughly by the end of the week as well as comment on your comments on my blog, that is if this next storm that is approaching does not do major damage and wipe out my power again.
For now, here are some mini-comments (is that a word?) to some of your new posts:
Annie, the aqua alta photos are amazing.
Kim, I love the hats.
Sandra, congrats on signing up for an Italian language class. I wish we had more options here for classes. I would love to sign up for another class. Have fun!!
Palma, Rome for Christmas next year? How exciting!!
Marta, I hope it is warming up there for you and I am glad you answered my "Where's Borneo?" question. I was going to eventually google it.
Chiocciola, you crack me up that you actually put a link to my ziploc bag!
Jerry, I wish I had the energy you have for baking all those delicious cookies.
Leslie, cool Sorrento photo :)
Jill & Anne, love the lists.
Oh and Anne, I will email you that photo this weekend and I did leave you a quick comment tonight for #1000, hoping everyone else was already asleep and did not see your post yet :)
Maria, I must tell you my story about the French pay toilet someday.
Jane, loved the "you need more drops between them" line.
menehune, Lily is beautiful.
Diana, is that a new layout of am I just dreaming things? Brava on getting your threatening letters to work.
Brenda, Cesar Millan sure is an amazing person.
And to all you slow soupers, the Italian Wedding Soup looks deelish!!
Off to bed to rest my weary head...
OH...and about the photos for the cheesecake bars. I completely spaced out on taking a photo of the finished bars after they were cut up. I packaged them up late Monday night and brought them all to school on Tuesday. I did however take some photos of the process and will post them later in the week when I get my energy back.
ps...Michael & Lisa, if you are reading this, I hope you have power and are toasty warm! (well I guess you would need power to read this...duh!)
