Warm and fuzzy

A hectic end-of-semester, 4 exams in 5 days, a week of pre-clerkship classes that did more to discourage than reassure, a 24-hour train ride, and one week of vacation later, this blog post is finally happening. Being home has been a wonderful, relaxing, reprieve; and I'm once again reminded of how much I love my family and miss them when we're not together.

The past few days have been spent curled up by the fire with my favorite furry friend, good books, warm beverages, and knitting (photos to come!).

Finding a cozy place to nap...

Which turns into perusing the tree...

"What, me? Steal ornaments?" Don't believe the cute face - she's a yarn thief too!

I decided to forgo the usual Christmas cookie baking, trying out chocolate-dipped pretzels instead. The effort was rewarding - less time and energy required, but still lots of fun.

Those pretzels look especially delicious, though chocolate covered pretzels aren't usually my favorite. But seriously, yum.

Haha. I like that second picture. And those pretzels are making me salivate.

:) I first read the beginning of this entry as "A heroic end of semester..." Although I smiled when I realized my mistake, I suspect it was just as heroic as it was hectic!
Can't wait to see you in a few weeks!
