December 18 is National Bake Cookies Day. I may indulge later this evening. I had thought of making iced up and decorated sugar cookies. With lots of sprinkles and colors. But I will probably make chocolate chip or oatmeal as that is what the Cookie Monster likes best. I LOVE peanut butter and nuts in mine, but I would feel guilty making just those. And my butt doesn't really need them anyways.

I would offer to make available photos of my batch all steamy and crisp as they come out of the oven, but the Monster eats them right off the trays. So pretend you can smell them about 8 PM.

Ice Ice Baby

    I can hear the ice hitting my house. The storm actually started late yesterday with copious amounts of rain. It rained so hard I thought it was snow-except snow doesn't make that much noise. We were upgraded to a winter storm warning about 5 Pm Thursday and it is slow coming but no matter what it does, it will screw up my weekend. I want to go to an Open house Saturday at the stamp store in Fowlerville-but if the roads are bad, will try for Sunday.

    I need to go to the gym tomorrow too-its the last day of the "World Series" competition. We get points for whatever card we draw from a standard deck of cards. The Joker card is a grand slam and I haven't gotten that one yet. So far, I have 24 runs-which get me Hurley bucks to use in the pro shop. I already promised the hubster he could have mine-I just don't like the selection they have anyway. He has a few runs-but since he never really goes, he can't get runs.

    Hopefully, the next storm will find my car in the garage instead of in the driveway-I have taken all the "crap" to Goodwill except one chair and two tables. Next week, everything else goes to the trash or recycler. I can actually see my garage floor now! It still looks like cement-but I can see it.
