What a great time of year! Everyone I talk to either has family coming in or are going to visit family. With that being said, my heart goes out to those who are lonely or have lost a loved one. The loneliness and grief becomes even more acute amidst other's joy. On a happier note--I took today off and I am going to do this EVERY year. I have been having a wonderful day---baking and preparing for the festivities. Just me and Magglio. Every now and then, he takes a nap and I have a cup of tea. These Cranberry Muffins are going to be our breakfast for Friday---we are getting up early and heading back to the West Side Market in Cleveland. Food. It's all about the Food.
