Cookie Day

It's 65 degrees in my living room right now. Some windows are open in the sun room and the bedroom, but everything else is closed up because it's down-right chilly outside.  I think it's a day for cookie baking...among other things.

The oven will warm out the house, so I think I'll do them fairly early.  As the day progresses, the temperatures will rise, and then I won't want to bake. Besides, there are outside things I want to get done today.

So, shall I make chocolate chip cookies or should it be brownies or oatmeal or lemon bars?  I must make one choice...I don't want to be in the kitchen all day!  If I eat breakfast first, which I must because I'm currently famished, I probably won't want to make the cookies anymore.

But I'll do it anyway...because I haven't baked anything in ages.  Mike will be pleased to wake up to the fragrance of something yummy, and he'll be happy to do some real damage to a batch of homemade treats!  I surely do not need them to add to my 'hippie' status, but if they're there, I can tell you truthfully that I'll be eating some (translataion, "too many")  of them.

Well, enough I go!  Breakfast first, then cookies. Come on over if you can smell them baking!  I'd gladly share the joy of adding to your  hips!


  1. I have coffee in my traveling mug and we will arrive sometime tomorrow..Will the cookies still be around? LOL
    It's been rather chilly here also...I haven't baked but Potato Soup and Venison Chili have been eaten:)
    ~~Peace & Love & Blessings~~

  2. Nothing like the smell of homemade cookies or bread baking! As soon as the air gets chilly I start thinking of soups and breads and cranking up the oven. I hope the hubby was pleased. :)

  3. Are we talking scratch made cookies ? Worth the trip I'm sure.

  4. Mmmm, yummy!
    Fresh baked goodies, I enjoy baking immensely and dont need any more padding on my hips, however if it meant I got to sit and visit with you, I would love to come over;)
    Have a great day, friend!
