What a Day….

I have been going, going, going all day and just realized that it is 11:20 and I haven’t blogged yet today, so here we go.
I was up at 7 a.m. this morning. Daniel had gotten up before me and he announced his check had arrived into the business account. We had a long list of things that needed to be taken care of. This was the first full month’s check since he started working in December and we had lots to do with it.
I worked on some of my shipping lists and ordered Daniel’s prescriptions from Drugstore.com (I love Drugstore.com…if you have never checked it out, go by).

Then after a yummy egg and tomato sandwich, I set to work on the cookies that I have been putting off doing…my grandma’s molasses cookies! I love these cookies. They are one of my favorite Christmas cookies, but they take hours to make. The mixing alone can take an hour (for an old slow person like me) because you mix up the liquid ingredients and then you add up to five pounds of flour until the dough is the right consistency (not too sticky to work with, not too stiff so the cookies will e dry). Then there is the rolling and cutting out of the cookies…and with 5 pounds of flour, you know there are a lot of cookies to make! I started on the cookies about 9:30 and finished at 2. But they are soooo yummy!
