It was a dark and stormy day.
And then the sun started shining in small patches over the trees.
But the sky remained dark and the snow started coming down heavy and wet, the wind blowing it into silhouettes over the landscape.
And I went to play with a couple of five year olds.
We read stories and told stories and listened to each other’s convoluted stories.
And we braided hair and made cookies and did homework and made Christmas presents and ate pretzels and peanutbutter with sprinkles.
We made shortbread cookies with chocolate kisses.
Today I’m on a cookie baking marathon.
I’m going to make Best Ever Oatmeal cookies- so good- (really not like an oatmeal cookie with raisins) more like a crunchy, nutty, melt in your mouth with white chocolate stripes down the front.
And cut outs, Sugar and gingerbread. But I’m not decorating today, just baking.
And Finnish Ribbon Cookies.
And Lemon Coconut Dainties.
I’ll post recipes later with pictures.
I better get started now- or I will have no cookies to show!
