My mojo came back today. We went to my great aunt and uncle's house for our annual fruitcake dancing. Okay, so it's really just making fruitcake. When Hokieboy was a teeny thing, the Saturday after Thanksgiving we went and made fruitcake. We wanted to put his hands in the batter so we could say he helped, but my aunt *insisted* that we put his feet in the bowl. So, fruitcake dancing was born. Hokiegirl joined in the tradition when she was born. Now they are a little old for the feet to be cute, but we still get them to stir the batter.
Back to the mojo. Fruitcake takes a long time to make and bake. We were at that house from 10am to 7pm. I wisely brought my Hokie socks to work on during the annual Commonwealth Cup game. Yay! Much knitting was accomplished! Yay! University of Virginia: 14, Virginia Tech: 17. The Hokies will make their next appearance in Tampa next week for the ACC title game. Woohoo!
