Too cold, too snowy, too slippery, but a nice day all the same. I finished the sock monkeys and gave them to the grandkids for Valentine's Day, with a little bag of chocolate covered this and that.
And I made another King Cake, a galatte des rois, that I hope I will remember to make more appropriately on the Feast of the Three Kings next year. It was really delicious, a puff pastry filled with an almond cream, sort of like an almond croissant. I could definitely eat too much of this, too often.
Most fun of all, my daughter (in law) and I went to a Lampwork class. It was a pretty amazing experience, but I'll wait to post about it until we see - and I get photos of - the finished beads. I'll tell you this much: two of us took the class, but only one of us was really good at it. But I hope we'll do it again, and that Other (blush) might improve with time.
