my best gift was getting better from recent cold related sickies.
That sounds wonderful. There is nothing quite like seeing their eyes light up with the perfect gift. I just can't get over it. But I guess I'm fairly new at this too

We had a really nice Christmas too. We're exchanging gifts with my mom tomorrow so maybe I will have to update again . I couldn't afford to get my mom anything this year so I bought her dinner tonight and tomorrow I'm fixing a nice brunch for us.

Cooking wise I got the Star Trek pizza cutter and Klingon corkscrew and a TARDIS cookie jar from ThinkGeek.com.
I am so stealing that idea I know someone both trekkie and chef who'd love all that next year!

Better order them now. No guarantee they will still be available next year.

That is geeky-perfection! So tell me, James T. or Jean Luc?

I just got my 2011 Farmer's Almanac. There is a group for lovers of Dutch Ovens with contests and clubs in many states. How fun is that?? Welcome to DC!

PF, how is the kindle?

Santa was very good to me. I received some silver charms for my bracelet, a silver cross necklace, a Black and Decker cultivator, a book on wine-making, and some hand-made chocolates by a local chocolatier. My nieces and nephew bought me a pretty stone and metal necklace. Oh, and I got a toilet ring with a promise of installation.

Frank got a new chef's knife, sausage-making attachment for his KA and a how-to book, a King Arthur Cookbook with a baguette pan and bread-rising bowl, some silly (but very cute) knife rests shaped like kitties, and a few small BBQ gadgets.

The best part for us was being together for the holiday, and seeing my family, sister, and her awesome kids.

It just got here tonight! We had a heck of a time getting the wireless to work at first, until I turned off the wireless router and turned it back on and then the Kindle sprang to life in my hand.

I downloaded the new Dean Kootnz and am on the third chapter...then I had to play with downloading my wishlist, creating collections, etc.

I finally turned it off after spending a little over $50. But, I got my Taber's Medical 'Cyclopedia and a Nurses Drug Book downloaded along with some of my favorite Science-Fiction titles.

My dilemma tonight was play with the Kindle or check on DC...now it's time to go to bed...

Yes, the Kindle has a name...
