cookie day


source unknown

It's cookie day at our house today.  On the check list: sugar cookies, cherry pinwheels, orange glaze and opera candy bar.

We have Pandora set to all Christmas music.  The amaryllis are in full bloom and they make my kitchen seem extra festive.  I studded oranges with whole cloves and the smell is intoxicating. The rain is coming down and the fire is crackling away. The children are suspiciously on good behavior. I've got good friends on their way to have lunch and do some baking.

It's going to be a good day.  It's going to be a good week.

I may have had a little too much caffeine this morning.



I've been having fun at this site making my own snowflakes.  Check it out.

I love your ruminations from your lesson on the sacrament. I am sure I will need to remind myself of that a few times this week.

And what, praytell, is opera bar candy? Are you at liberty to share the recipe?

Perhaps I don't look around enough but I can never find whole cloves to stud oranges with!! Any tips?
