That was some rain storm we had yesterday. Today, the sun was shining, it was dry outside. It was almost as that all day, half the night rain never happened.
I for one was happy it happened on a non-training day, so I didn’t have to swim to the Pain Cave.
Heading out for this morning’s workout, I saw gone was the paper the resident I've dubbed Red Light District (RLD) had wrapped around the two patio doors to resemble Christmas packages.
Inasmuch as paper and water doesn't mix, it was probably necessary to remove the watered-down mess after the storm, but she’s soooo obsessive. Always fiddling around with the decorations on the patio.
With so many interesting patios for the Tyrant to choose winners from, RLD hasn’t a prayer of winning, so all this obsessing is a waste of energy.
Driving out of the complex, taking the long way around to see if the patio with the Christmas Tree has been unveiled, I saw it’s still covered with tarp. Which begs the question … why bother?
You go to the trouble of hauling all that stuff out, but then don’t get to look at and enjoy your handiwork, nor do you allow others to enjoy.
The contest ends in two days on the 17th, so my guess is the display will be unveiled just for the purpose of the Tyrant seeing and judging on that day.
Warm and cozy inside yesterday, I got started on the pre-built ready-to-decorate gingerbread house.
I worked on it a little before I headed out to the Pain Cave this morning, and completed when I returned.

I’m happy with the results.
It’s an improvement over my past attempts at decorating gingerbread.
That done, it being chilly inside, I thought it would be nice to warm the place up this afternoon by baking some gluten-free cookies — and you can thank Mistress Maddie for how that turned out.
Mistress Maddie was the one that got me hooked on Reface, where I spend time swapping my face — like the time I made myself, to name a few ……….

This time, Mistress Maddie got me hooked by the hilarious photo of a snow person called a “frostitute”.
So, I challenged myself to recreate that in cookie form.
So far so good, except that one cookie on the left looks like her implant surgery went a little off center.
Cooled and decorated (Decorated poorly. Would have been easier to decorate had I flattened them a bit).
It’s a good thing we’re not back to having Cookie Swaps yet, because I’d have gotten myself banned from the Community Room.
