where's the cinnamon?

   Hi everyone, I'm still here!  

    Yes this is another non-cinnamon post but I'm still trying to shrug off the last little bit of cold I seem to have... this thing will not budge!!  So what have I been doing then you ask?  Drinking lots of hot healthy tea and reading... a lot.  I've already gone threw two books this week and am surely almost finished the third.  I've decided that since no new episodes of TrueBlood were airing any time soon I figured I'd read my way threw it.  I fear I am now spiraling down into yet another vampire obsession. 

  I did have quite the busy weekend though, baking up some delicious little treats for a couple of cute twins for their first birthday.  Here's just one of the little cakes I did for the sesame street theme involving a certain furry red favorite and this little blue monster who sure likes snacks which involve cookies, and lots of em!

I love your photos. Are those books yours? They are lovely! I have a few very old books like that and it's just wonderful to smell the paper and see the pages that were cut with a paper knife. It always connects me with the past and visions of libraries and wood crackling in the fireplace.

As miserable as it can be to be sick, sometimes it has it's perks. Reading is one of them. :>
