your swedish cake turned out really delicious-looking, taxy. and i Know you were extra generous with the almonds, too--yum, they're so tasty toasted brown like that....
Well, yeah, it looked like it wanted a few more almonds.

For reasons that I don't understand, that silver is called "Konge" in Danish, which means "King". I have no idea why they call it Acorn in English.

Acorn by Georg Jensen Sterling Silver Flatware Set Service 76 Pieces | eBay

you are right, taxy. i was looking long and hard to find the 'acorn' in this silver pattern. at the very top of the king's crown, there is a little scored bud shape, which is the 'acorn' i presume. boy, did they take some liberties in this case, with the name. most likely politically motivated.(shrug) beautiful, beautiful silver design, though.....:)

Oatmeal-Savory and Comforting Recipe | Yummly

OK,OK, so it's not for everybody.:) But for me, and for some of us, this savory bowl of curried oatmeal is just the thing--just begging to be tried while winter still continues to bluster and chill, as it makes its march, a protest in every step, toward spring....

*rattle rattle*

What the? The door is locked? I didn't even know it COULD lock. Who has the keys? I need some time in my armchair with a cup of coffee. I wonder if I can jimmy the lock? I know I have some of those eyeglass screwdrivers in here somewhere...

Just knock three times just above the door knob and it will unlock for you. I locked it because I saw a total stranger walking down the road. I go there every day to feed the kitties. Although with all the food they eat, they are quickly becoming CATS.

Cool. Thanks Addie. I brought a bunch of my homemade trail mix for folks to munch on if they want. Dried nectarines, apricots, cranberries, raisins, toasted almonds, peanuts and hazelnuts.

Om nom nom. Ah! This chair is divine. OH! I brought in some fuzzy blankies too for folks who like to curl up when they read. *yawn* Just going to rest my eyes for a minute.

Shh! Alix fell asleep in the chair with one of her blankies over her. Looks like her family will be making their own supper tonight.
