Good weekend! Taking time off is a strange feeling. I’m never “completely” off, but it’s odd not thinking about my work in progress every second. Saturday, I mostly sat around a read a book. While I’m feeling better, the end of the cold was bugging me, so I kicked back. Sunday we did more shopping etc.
I’m not baking until later this week. I’m going to give some cookie-gifts at a Saturday party, and I want them to be fresh as possible. I realize now that I’m going to be pushing a bit do make that many different types of cookies in a couple days–poor planning on my part. But I’ll figure it out, and enjoy doing it.
After the horrible tragedy in Connecticut last week, all this other stuff just isn’t very important. My thoughts are with all the families and friends devastated by the violence that I simply can’t, and won’t ever be able to, comprehend. If I truly had any magic, I would focus it all on giving each and every heart suffering from that tragedy comfort and peace. I’ll leave my comments at that.
Back to baking, every day Wizard asks me, “Are you starting yet?” He cracks me up. I had six recipes I found online, and I only needed a couple. He was going through them with me, saying, “Ohhh, do that one! No that one! Can you make them all?” I think we settled on orange dipped cookie and a mocha cookies to add to what I already had. He always inspires me
How was your weekend?
