Are you starting to think all we do around our house is bake cookies and chocolate cake?
Unfortunately, it’s not. Brussels sprouts, tomato soup and enchiladas have made their way to our table lately too. However, since it’s Friday, and the end of a good week, filled with good news, I’m going to share one more sweet treat to celebrate it in the form of some heart shaped, shortbread cookies.
Waking to a heavy fog on Sunday morning, set the tone for the day. We moved a bit slower, snuggled a little longer and cozied up under quilts, watched movies, read and played games. In the morning, I ventured out to get a few groceries and snapped a couple pics of the dreary day with my phone. The country roads and barren trees, along with the heavy sky made for moody b&w images. Later in the day, as the fog rolled back in, across the empty cornfields, I got my big camera out to capture the landscapes.
I’m writing this from the warmth of my kitchen. Something I could not say for most of the day. We had a snowstorm blow through overnight bringing 8 inches of snow and 50 mph winds that took out our power for 12 hours. It was a funny lesson for my children in all that electricity does for us, both big and small. Thankfully, there were mounds of snow to be conquered and sugar cookies to be decorated. Still, the day was not without complaints of wanting to watch a favorite movie or why cold, wet snow clothes couldn’t just be thrown in the dryer.
