"Phase-One Christmas Candy Operation Completed."
That translates to sixteen pounds of salted caramels in non-robot speak. I feel like a robot though. Still, I'm glad that's out of the way early, and tomorrow it will be handed around at bird banding, and to the wonderful people that work at Aksarben aquarium. We are fortunate enough to have really great people in our lives, and it is the happiest sort of work crafting sweets for people you appreciate. The library volunteers are getting spritz cookies this year because I have an awesome vintage Swedish cookie press that doesn't get used as much as it ought to. I keep forgetting I have it!

I hope you have a great weekend, and that St. Nicholas leaves you a shoe full of candy Saturday. I'd settle for a shoe full of perfume decants, but the kid expects candy. *Shrug*
