the holidays--they have officially started

last night i made my first pie of the season--an apple pie for the thanksgiving pot luck thingy at work today. my whole house smells like apple pie, which is EXCELLENT. this is one of my favorite times of year--i love all the cooking and the mad rushes getting ready for the holiday season. i LIKE shopping for christmas presents and nearly killing myself to make more presents than any sane person would try to make. i love the smells of the holidays--the cinnamon and the nutmeg and all the roasting meats. i like my crazy family, and the hippie's crazy family and the nesting feeling i get about my house. i like it all. yay for the holidays! even though they snuck up on me AND HOW this year, i am glad they are here! :)

off to eat the pot luck lunch with my coworkers...

update, 1:19pm: i am calling this pie a success--it was completely gone before i even finished eating my lunch and before any of the other pies were cut. go me! :)

If I "loan" you my empty pie plate will you send it back filled with an apple pie? A piece of pie sounds REALLY good right about now!
