Visions of sugar cookies dance in my head....
All of the shopping is done...we just have some wrapping to do. We shopped local, small businesses yesterday. I am very happy with the surprises I found for the kids and I was happy to keep my purchases right here in the "neighborhood"! Today is about the baking. Like many of you...I have to make Christmas cookies, today. I just have to do it in much larger quantities!!! This is going to be short and SWEET (get it??) but I did promise to try to keep up with my blog responsibilities!! I have a list of the cookies that need to get done today and the ones that need to get done tomorrow so that I can stay on schedule for all that I need to do on Thursday...wow, I am tired just thinking about it!! I have visions of...well not sugar plums...but sugar cookies dancing in my head. Santa, stockings, bells and trees....eggnog crescents, candy canes, snowballs...but, can I make a confession?? I, also, have visions of red hearts and raspberry filled cookies and heart shaped spritz...yes, OK...I'll admit it...even while I am baking beloved Christmas cookie recipes (most of which were my grandmother's...) I am thinking about Valentine's Day!!!! It really is no wonder I don't know what month we are in most of the time!!! Happy 4 more days until Christmas....maybe if I say it enough, I will remember which month this is!!! I am off to bake...Christmas, Christmas, Christmas....oh, wouldn't those checkerboard cookies be pretty in red and white?? Maybe a little pink....focus, focus, FOCUS!!!!
