Finished up some last minute Christmas shopping at the King of Prussia Mall on Saturday. Man, that place was an absolute zoo...and I'm just talking about the parking lot! Dodging SUVs piloted by cell-phone talking, adrenaline rushed, sale-crazed soccer moms should become an Olympic sport.
Did spend some time unwinding on Saturday night by tying up some flies while listening to the 76ers play the Orlando Magic. Here's a pic of some of the flies, but honestly nothing really worth posting recipes for or anything. Just killing time.

Sunday afternoon meant Eagles football. What a f'n game. The Eagles came back from down 21 in the 4th quarter, and to be honest simply embarrassed the Giants on their home turf. Nice collapse G-Men. Yet another swift kick to New York's collective crotch by Philadelphia. Not that I'm gloating or anything. No, I'm actually slapping Cliff Lee a high five while gloating.
Sunday evening brought family. Made some pizzelles (Italian waffle cookies) with K.C. & Lilly. It was the first time Lilly ever made (or I believe even ate) these. Mangia!

We'll see what the weather holds for this week. As of right now there's some snow being forecasted for Christmas (oooh, a white X-mas!), if that holds off maybe I'll be able to sneak out and get a line wet. If not, some more fly tying and perhaps some furled leader twisting might be in the cards.
