BACK ON THE BENCH - ACK!

I'm on the bench and out of the game for the rest of the week.  Which means, no major cooking or baking until at least the weekend.  Eyeballs, crossed.

I didn't realize that sitting at the kitchen table (see yesterday's post), was not proper rest for my leg.  Then last night that deep pain returned, and I knew I'd better get my butt back to the bench (couch).

Meanwhile, I'm itchin' to write/test bakes.  I've got an idea for little chocolate honey fudge cakes,  little maple vanilla cakes and wooffle sticks for the pups, and, and, and ...

    1. Writing recipes from the couch is okay for a little while, but then it's time to get into the lab and see what really works.

    1. Nope, they don't. Takes time.

      Been resting for awhile and thought the kitchen table was okay to sit at.

      Now I know it's not.

  10. When ever I sit at my drawing table I always have to keep one of my legs elevated. Either by a stool or even a pillow so it is not on the floor.
    I am not sure what you did to your leg/back but take care.

    cheers, parsnip

  13. Love the netflix fireplace and even the xmas tree up already looking so glam. :) We just went and picked ours out this weekend. Fun! no weird coloured walls to contend with though.

    1. That's our lemon tart wall, that I did over the summer. The room gets lots and lots of sunshine and it's great. Just not so great with xmas motif. But that's okay, when the lights are off, it's all so very peaceful.

      Thanks for stopping by and checking so many posts out.

      Cheers and boogie boogie.

    1. What? No way. I saws yours and it's great. At least you decorated yours. Me, I just do lights. Because I like to look at them as I sip warm tea.

  18. I have fallen behind on everything and haven't had a chance to respond to your emails and catch up with you! I will try today. But for sure, I am stopping here to say 'hey' and 'sorry about the relapse of pain' and 'I hope today is MUCH better'. Eyeballs, crossed? Hahahahaha! Love that :) Your sense of humour is still alive and well, despite it all. Hang in there, Wonder Woman!

    1. If I writing to you from the couch, with the Spen you may find lots of hand-drawn little doodles and xmas trees. That darn pen, it just won't stop drawing silly little things.

      Hope your day is killer. Snow there yet? I can't recall if you said yes or no.

  19. It is the worst when we have the will to do stuff but our bodies just can't and in the end, they are the boss. Good for you for writing down ideas for when you are feeling better. :)

    1. Very fun video you did. Love that you ate all the humus or is it hummus? I don't know which, but very funny stuff.

      You are brilliant.

  21. Love the tree! Blue lights happen to be my favorite. That is the perfect Christmas picture - tree beside the fireplace or picture of a fireplace. Hey it works for me! Now I know why I don't come here as often as I should - OMG! all that food!!!! I've been on a diet forever - you are a bad, bad influence. So luscious and tempting!
    Merry Christmas!

    1. The blue does stand out though that tree has five different colours.

      Sorry to hear that you're on a diet forever. How come? You mentioned allergies in my other post. Are those new or have you had them for awhile?

      Happy Christmas and boogie boogie.
