You know how it gets around this time of the year, though....crazy busy doesn't even begin to describe it!
I took a much needed day off today. No, I didn't go anywhere. Well, nowhere except my kitchen. I think I baked about a bazillion and one Christmas cookies today. I still have about a gazillion and one more to go. So far today I have baked eight dozen chocolate chip cookies, six dozen oatmeal/cranberry cookies, and two dozen brownies. I have made enough Snickerdoodle dough for eight dozen snickerdoodles and enough butter cookie dough for roughly one hundred gobzillion butter cookies. I still have another pan of brownies to bake and two pans of pumpkin bars. I think the pumpkin bars will wait for tomorrow. I have a new recipie that I want to try and I don't have the gumption to do it tonight. If I find said gumption, I may also try a recipie I found for a version of Starbucks Cranberry Bliss bars. It looks semi-easy and I do love those bars a great deal. So...we'll see.
Right now, as you can see, I am taking a break. It is beyond freaking cold here and my feet feel like ice cubes. Sadly, I am afraid they will feel this way until, I don't know, April or May I guess. Sigh.
I go out to get the mail today. In the mail I find one of those little sample box things. I think to myself "Hmmm....I don't remember signing up for a free sample of anything. I wonder what it could be." I come inside, putter around the kitchen and decide to check out the mail. Much to my surprise and delight, it was a wee little box of tissues from Kleenex. Apparently, my brother decided to send me a wee little box of tissues to help make up for the three ginormous ones that I went through during my recent cold (that I am still not completely over much to my dismay). I got a good laugh out of that.
Ok. I guess it was only a funny story to me. Sorry.
Off to bake more cookies!
