Kristin, Paul & Grandma working on a puzzle.
It sounds like we have another Windy City ! The lights flicker once in awhile. But so far we have power.
I have made Bourban Balls, and the dough for the Cookie Dough Truffles are in the fridge. They need to cool so I can handle them better. And tomorrow I’ll roll them in melted chocolate. A messy job.
I have been busy baking cookies. Tonight it was Oatmeal & Raisin. Next will come Christmas cookies to freeze…. The Oatmeal & Raisin are for our son. He has some traveling to do, so I thought I would bake cookies for him to take along. At least it’s healthier then stopping for junk food.
Has anyone else started on their Christmas baking? It would be great if you shared you ideas / recipes on here !
I make bourbon balls every year. If anyone has a better recipe, please share it! The recipe I use is kind of mediocre.
I’m still crocheting, but my hands need a rest. A storm front must be coming. ( achy) So I have been listening to books on PLAYAWAY… I love those little things! Check out PLAY AWAY ! Just Google it. Our library has them.
Good Night for now…
I just finished listening to my book on C.D. “ Until We Reach Home “ by Lynn Austin “… It’s about 3 sisters from Sweden who journey to America together. They each have their own story but they do intertwine. It is the late 1800’s to early 1900’s. Very sweet.
I got a cute e-mail from my son this morning. It is so cute I just have to share it with you.
“ The First Day Of Deer Hunting “
Check List Complete;
I scouted the area all summer . . . . .
I searched out the best location for my tree-stand . . . . .
I set it all up a month ahead of time . . . . .
I trailed the herd . . . . .
I picked out a trophy buck . . . . .
Two days before opening day I rechecked every aspect of the hunt . . . .
Everything was in place . . . . .
Sunday morning, I woke up at 2 am . . . . .
I put on my camo, loaded my pack, set out for my stand . . . . .
This was destined to be an epic hunt . . . . .
As I approached my deer stand . . . . .
. . . . . I changed my mind; decided to go to church instead.
I have to get to the Grocery Store, Library & then get Laundry done. So I better get going.
I got to sit in the car that Sean Connery drove in his Bond Movies !
Before I forget to mention it, this is at Cincinnati Music Hall. This car is on the stage. 7 million dollar car !
It’s an Astin Martin. Silver in color ! ( Just like my Ford)
When I got in the car, I could tell it was well used and on the vintage side. The leather had some wear on it. I should have gotten a picture of the inside. Look at the license plate. I think it’s sharp.
… As evening wears on I realize something. “ Our phone hasn’t been ringing off of the hook! " … Nice & Quiet. I got to quilt without getting up every 15 minutes to answer the phone.
No big plans for tomorrow. Just cleaning my work area AKA The dining Room.
The news show I watch will be on in a few minutes. So I better go.
