“Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow….” You know you’re in trouble when its been around 35 degrees for the last 24 hours, scrawny red-headed weatherboy is forecasting a 40% chance of the white stuff, and you wake up in the morning with this song running thru your head!!!! AACCKKK!!!!!!! I love snow – just not the cold, the ice, the slush and the fools who “Think” they can drive in the stuff ’cause their car is front-wheel drive and they are immortal!!!! Heaven help us all…..
They only good things about this kind of weather are a warm fire, the promise of Hot Chocolate and a warm blanket on the sofa to watch the fire, and the smell of Christmas Yummies baking in the kitchen. So, I guess that means that it is time to break out the cookie recipes and start baking 🙂 I used to make cookies, LOTS of cookies, and give them away to EVERYONE I knew at Christmastime – 72 dozen one year was my record….I think I baked myself out that year. Since then I have only made a couple dozen – if any at all – at Christmas, and no more cookie gifts 😦 . However, me-thinks that I am getting the “cookie itch” back again. No, 72 dozen I will NOT make again, but a couple of dozen just for visitors (and maybe co-workers), and those muckrunning teenagers I know and love, would be okay – I think…..We’ll see…
Certain Dingledorffs I know are praying for snow so that they can go plow peoples parking lots and driveways…..me-thinks they just want to go play in the snow with their big toys! That’s fine, I however want no part of driving around in it unless I have to – and with the “day job” I already “HAVE TO”. I’m not interested in driving around in it any more than that, I’ll just stay home with my cocoa and blankie and be warm 🙂 .
Christmas cookie recipes will be uploaded here in the next day or so, for anyone looking for some new ideas for their cookie swap or personal cookie tray this year. I will, eventually, get more quilty-stuff on here, probably most of it will be after the Holidays when things slow down a bit. Since I only created the site a little over a week ago, it’s actually coming along pretty well – I just don’t have enough time free to get everything done all at once. To make matters worse, this is our busiest time of year at “the day job” so I usually feel like I’ve been “rode hard and put away wet” by the time I get home. Which means all I want to do is take a HOT bath and a nap when I get done for the day – the last thing I usually feel like doing is computer work, or anything else for that matter…..sorry. 🙂 But, I will get it all done and organized eventually – I am determined!!!! LOL. In the mean time, take a look around, if you have any requests or suggestions leave me a comment, and I’ll see what I can do 🙂 .
Until next time, Y’all have a great day, and stay warm out there!!!
