Hello all! Hope you had a Merry Christmas. Tom and I are back in Vermont for the week and we spent Christmas day with both of our families. Have to say, Santa was very nice once again this year.
Three gifts in particular will benefit this blog....
Tom's bro got me Americolor food colors! Some of my favorite blog-bakers use these colors in their frostings and I have wanted to try them for years.
The second, from my bro, is the Hansons Marathon Method book! I have got to find out more about their plan after having success with it this fall.
Finally, Tom got me a super nice lens for my camera. I was NOT expecting that one at all! It's a Nikon AF-S Nikkor 35mm 1:1.8G. SAY WHAT? I am not good with camera-lingo at all. But apparently it is going to be awesome for closeups of food and can still be used for everyday photos. Sadly, I damaged my only other lens two weeks ago. It works, but not well. It will be nice to play around with this new lens until I save up enough for a replacement lens.
In running news, I apparently have good luck with race lotteries (*knockonwood*). I get to run in the Cherry Blossom 10 miler in early April in DC!
It's back to the fudge making. I am on my fifth batch this year and there may be another one following this. I'll go for a run in a bit (yikes - it is 30 degrees colder here than what I've been running in in DC), then I get to meet up with Kat for lunch! We're expecting a snow storm starting this evening. I can't complain about not experiencing winter this year. Vermont is making sure I see it!
Hope you have a wonderful day!
