I'm still celebrating -- it's only the second day of Christmas and I'm waiting 2 turtle doves.

And a partridge in a pear tree!

I cooked two ducks last night, but they aren't on the Twelve Days of Christmas list. They sure were tasty, since I conveniently found Julia Child's THE ART OF FRENCH COOKING under my tree and she conveniently included a recipe for duck cooked in a casserole with turnips and I conveniently have turnips in my garden.

Maybe I should try partridges and turtledoves and French hens and geese soon, although it does seem rather horrible to cook and eat the proceeds of the Twelve Days of Christmas. :)


I'm with you, Mary Anna! Devouring my new copy of Red Harvest by Hammett, sneaking a peek at the hubbie every chapter or so, who's fully engrossed by his pulp fiction critique/history/monograph.

That was this morning, anyway. Now I'm at work, finishing grading & comments on my students' final projects. Well, the idyll was nice while it lasted :)

I'm working on my book on how to write novels, DAY BY DAY. It's a pretty happy and peaceful way to spend the afternoon.
