Today I went to my local grocery store to get everything I need to start
baking Christmas cookies. The log jam in the baking isle was enough to
make me think I might just sit down on the floor and start crying, or
head over to the wine section where two sweet ladies were handing out
samples ;-) It was crazy!!!
I managed to keep myself together without any tears or wine and I
believe I purchased everything I need. At least I hope I have everything
because I am not looking forward to facing any more crowds for at least
a day or two.
Tomorrow afternoon I will start baking the cookies. I give almost all of them
away to neighbors and friends. I really look forward to putting the trays
together each year. I have come to know who likes what, and so I set up
each tray depending on preference. For example, Dr Fred loves my
chocolate chip walnut cookies, so I always make sure he gets extra.
It has been really, really warm here today, but the temps are
supposed to take a nose dive. If it does get as cold as predicted,
tomorrow will be a perfect day for lighting a fire in the fire place,
baking cookies and watching old Christmas movie favorites.
I am looking forward to a happy and cozy baking day.
