Then afterwards Eileen gave me my belated Christmas present. And it's so perfect: a bejeweled coffee measuring spoon to go along with my handy dandy Aero Press coffee making system that Mauri and Sherry gave me for my birthday (see May's posts). How fun is this?!

Darkness all morning, premature gloaming, and all that rain in-between.
Sun has descended, moods are amended, incentive has sunk to the deep.
Nights pass too slowly, light seems almost holy, and the brain is perpetually asleep….
But wait--day is dawning, there’ll be a new morning, on the horizon I see a new year
On December 21st, we’re released from the curse…this pattern repeats, never fear!
So cease all your whining, the sun will start climbing, hope is a season called spring,
Days will grow longer; the sun will seem stronger and you’ll dream of having a fling.
Clouds will disperse, summer will rehearse, the aches in your joints will disappear,
Birds will start calling, buds will stop stalling, your senses will suddenly feel clear.
So rail not at the dark, the sun’s hit its mark and its inevitable climb is at hand
The skies will be blue, flowers will open on cue and it all happens just as He planned!

We made it to Waynee's just fine, and Kris and Paul showed up with a surprise Mile High Raspberry Pie! Oh yeah....
But wait, there's more! We headed over to Kris and Paul's place (a mile or so away) and Krissie made scrumptuous pasta and homemade meatballs and salad and garlic bread....and....Waynee (pie maker extraordinaire) had made a beautiful custard pie for his kingship's birthday....such a deal....urp.Thanks, Waynee, Kris and Paul for all the treats...t'was a good day for himself, don'tchaknow!

Part of the fun is "guessing" the shapes of the ollie bolen when they are done. They do not form into perfect balls, each one has little "appendages" that make them look like animals and such. It's a lot like making shapes out of clouds, except you can eat them.
Then the next step is to roll the hot, crusty dough balls in cinnamon sugar....mmmmm.....
Then you sit around with about 50 other people and eat them and lick your fingers!
Then you hug the cooks and waddle home to take your cholesterol meds.
