Can't seem to sit still around here this week. Lots of action to record and report.

Great looking young people brave snow in Missoula, MT while posing for a family Christmas card. I recognize nieces and nephews in this foto, and marvel at how beautiful and handsome they've grown up to be ๐Ÿ‘ซ Happy holidays to their parents Cash and Molly ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’‹

You saw this one up-top.  Briefcase is making its inaugural appearance at Harvest Moon Co-op this week.  The journal? From the Poppy Memorial Library, and contains all manner of wisdom, reflection, speculation and other gibberish.  How 'bout the fountain pens?  My eclectic faves:  a yellow Pelikan with a red ink cartridge installed;  green Lamy with turquoise ink;  and a red Schaeffer calligraphy-nibbed pen with black ink.  Coffee cup likely contains a remaining sip or two of Peace brand small batch.

No one ever accused me of being a good cook.  But I have ventured lately into "egg in a basket" creations, something my Mom used to fry up when we kids were screaming for breakfast.  I added half a ripe avocado to the dish, plus a couple of dollops of homemade pesto (a neighborly gift from our friend Liz).  I literally inhaled the goodness of this dish. 

Bone Broth is all the rage they tell me.  Can't imagine what it must taste like -- chicken, turkey and beef.  Bone broth. Ugh. The Epic brand on sale in my co-op is joined in the refrigerated case by sister products like Beef Tallow, Pork Lard and Duck Fat.  These things surely can't be good for you ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™‰๐Ÿ™Š But they are for sale in the co-op and we all know that health food store food is, well, healthy.  What do YOU think? 

My dear family-ites  surprised me this afternoon with a new cold weather ski cap.  Temps in the Twin Cities are headed south to single digits next week, so this baby should come in handy.

The Patagonia ¼ zip pullover? I'm in my 4th straight day of staying warm with my Patagucci, so I'm grateful for this thoughtful, practical Christmas present.  
Last but far from least:  senior management at Common Roots Cafe on Lyndale and 26th in Minnie, work up my iced latte.  You might think that I'm awaiting change for my twenty, but my loyalty card was punched full, and the drink was on the house.  And it tasted even better 'cause it was free ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ‘
