There'll Be Marshmallows For Toasting

marshmallows for toasting

Homemade marshmallows. Melted chocolate chips. Graham cracker crumbs. A very patient husband with a little propane torch. Smores without campfire. Yum.

I'm tired. Bone tired. Almost cry in the grocery store tired. Go to three different post offices to send a tiny package out of the country tired. Can't wait for propane torch yielding husband to have a few days off of work tired. Staying in my pajamas as long as I can tired. Good tired.

But enough belly aching. I'm tired of complaining. My kids are on a nice long walk with their big cousin (who's probably thrilled to be done with her first semester of college!) and I've got eyes to embroider on a sock monkey and flannel pajama shorts to stitch up. I'm going to need another pot of coffee to go with my egg nog. It's the most wonderful time of the year, or so my Jingle Bell Rock Pandora station tells me.


  1. that crying in the grocery store tired? i've been there.
    i wish you rest, and joy. xo.

  2. Those look so yummy Molly! Hope you find some time to put up those weary feet and take it all in...
    Thank goodness for big cousins... wish ours were closer!

  3. Falling asleep while reading to the kids before nap tired...I'm there, too. Wishing you rest for Christmas!

  4. Home-made marshmallows!?! Wow!
    That's quite a list, you have a right to be tired!
    Merry Christmas, and God bless!

  5. and isn't that just it, in a nutshell. right there with you, Molly! the merriest of Christmases to you and yours-

  6. Wow, those look so good! Here's hoping you get to relax very soon! Merry Christmas!

  7. you know what's funny... this year I didn't want to start christmas-ing too early, for fear of getting carried away with everything. yeah, not a good idea. next year, xmas starts the day after thanksgiving, because making presents is exhausting and I need all the time I can get! lesson learned.

    happy holidays to you and yours; those marshmallows look delicious :)

  8. Beautiful photo. Hang in there. You really are fabulous. I've ripped out the zipper three times in the knitted (felted) backpack I'm making for Adam - oh yeah and I started this project in Aug of 2008. Maybe for his birthday in a couple of weeks? So close but not in time for this Christmas.

    Good luck and everything that you've shared with us looks so amazing. I made limoncello this year and really, that has been a HUGE help with getting me through the crafting holidays. Maybe I can bring some of my next batch your way.

    Happy Holidays!

  9. look at you with post after fabulous post!!!

  11. Yeah, I'm tired enough not to want to make them right now, but if someone brought these over, I'd definitely eat them...lots of them.
