For the third time, we have started a home renovation project in December. We don’t really intend to do this – discussion starts in March or so, planning starts in June. But for one reason or another, work doesn’t actually start until December. As a result, we’ve been unable to access our office and studio upstairs. I should be able to reboot my workhorse computer in a few days, but until then, photos will have to wait.
The upside is that I’ve been spending more time in the kitchen. The cartoon of the week’s loss has been the cookie project’s gain. In addition to what I’ve already mentioned, I’ve made gingerbreads, flat bars, toffee cookies and cornflake wreaths. Scheduled recipes for the next few days include Rangers, thumbprints and butter cookies.
Also – here is a schedule of special Chicago public radio broadcasts for the holidays that I’m excited about. If you can’t hear these at 91.5 FM, you can listen online.
