Feeling like a proper adult again. I had been putting off a haircut because I didn’t want to start the search for a hairdresser again. But I struck gold the first time — I love how she did my hair, and we talked the whole time about fandoms and crocheting/knitting.

We #adulted so hard today: doctor’s appointment for me, eye appt for Shane, then getting the battery in my iPhone replaced for free. Then we did the completely adult thing and used a gift I got in a white elephant exchange to get fancy tarts from Whole Foods to eat while watching #GBBO.

We are crawling at 25mph behind the de-icing trucks on 85, who are taking up all the lanes so no one can pass. I don't know what's going on today, but we were supposed to be home in about ten minutes, and we are only halfway there.

Not sure it's a proper custard by Mary Berry's standards, but when your father-in-law receives some lovely pears for Christmas and you've been binging #GBBO, you have to make a pear custard.

Got a loom I'd been wanting for awhile for Christmas. While I have giant tubs of yarn at my house, I just had the tiny ball of rainbow yarn the loom came with here. I haven't been feeling well today, so my amazing husband went out to the store and face-timed with me so I could pick out some yarn to play with. Here's the beginning of the infinity scarf I'm making.
