So, we're stuck on a snowbound highway on our way to Cincinnati, and the snow is falling, piling up on branches, ploughed to three and four feet deep at the sides of the road. It's beautiful but so dangerous - we've seen so many accidents, and we were stuck, sleeping, on interstate 77 for nine hours last night . .. The whole fergusandme family, fergus himself (he's curled around my feet right now, asleep) and Ginger, caroline's baby guinea pig. Pass the pig is proving to be a popular passtime;) she's very cuddly! We've had some fun snowball wars, a spirited game of I spy, even a little dora's Christmas carol. Now it's quiet, everyone's tired, and Sarah mcclaghlan's Christmas is playing . . . Last night we were sustained by the tin of pretty iced Christmas cookies and gingerbread I brought along. The next post will be a gingerbread recipe; delicious, perfect with tea or coffee, or for breakfast, or even for dinner if you're stuck in an impromptu gathering on a closed down highway -
