Look what I made this morning when I was making my breakfast!
No, your eyes do not deceive you...that is, in fact, a snowman made out of oranges!
I figured with winter in full swing and the holidays right around the corner that you probably totally got that...but I thought I'd state the obvious, as I couldn't for the life of me think of anything edible to put on him for eyes, nose, buttons and a hat...I was hungry and obviously creating on the fly, but I didn't want anyone to feel bad if they couldn't figure out that those three oranges were no ordinary stack of oranges. And then I ate him (what? He was my breakfast...and he is a very healthy holiday snack sent to me from my family up North in California.) before I thought to get out my little flags on toothpicks and make him more patriotic. I'm kind of regretting that now, truth be told.
Hold your applause please.
Other than assembling my Christmas cards, this may be the only thing I actually make this holiday season.
It's been grim lately.
But really, after making this I think things are definitely looking up.
Either that or I'm going to need to go somewhere very quiet soon.
