Nothing like the weather to change your plans. I will be going to pick up our new little bundle of joy on Thursday but.............we're in storm mode as of Thursday morning. Said bundle of joy is over an hour away. I called today and begged to pick her up on Wednesday. Tomorrow. I can't stand all the excitement. Puppy, Snow, Puppy, Snow..... Pure happiness for me. I'll get back to you after night one. If you know me, you know I love my sleep. Here's hoping I love my new puppy girl more. :)
So the "S" word.........we are expecting an icy wintry mix. Snow, freezing rain, slush, and mush!!! I love when they say that. I may be the only one around here but I do. The bad thing is they have no idea how much we are going to get. I'm not sure why that is with all of the technology they have. I'm hoping my yard looks like this on Thursday morning.
This one was our backyard last year. So pretty!!
and this. Not our real backyard. But then you knew that right?
I'm having a cookie swap here and I wanted to try out this cookie recipe I found before I feed them to MY friends. So, what's a girl to do? Of course make them, and send them to work with hubby for HIS friends. And that's exactly what I did. The house smelled incredible. Strawberry throughout. And the text message this morning said they were a hit. Yahooo.
Just in case you want to make some cookies, here goes the recipe.
1 egg, 1 container 8 ounce Cool Whip thawed, 1 cake mix any flavor. Mix all together. The dough will be very sticky. Roll into balls about 1 TBSP each then roll in powdered sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 min. I did mine a couple extra minutes but all ovens vary. They do have to set though for awhile. Very moist cookie. I'm going to make lemon next.
Do you have a favorite gift you like to give? I'd love to hear what it is. Mine is from Philosophy. I swear they have the cutest stuff and I always order a ton of it each year. WHo doesn't like to receive something that smells good and is so dang cute?
Can't beat a good online sale right?
We had 50 plus degree weather this past weekend. So hunka and I went out and decked the halls. Well the outside. I already decked the halls. I love that he doesn't mind decorating outside. That's something we didn't have growing up. Of course no one decorated outside like they do now. But I remember telling him, over 24 years ago, I'd love to have decorations outside someday. We were living in a duplex in Redwood City, CA and I came home from work to find our little deck overlooking the street with a big Christmas tree all lit up and lights all over. I can not tell you how happy that made me. I will never forget that day.
I'm working on a little Christmas table topper. Love the Log Cabin block. This is a kit on the website too. It's very scrappy, very red, and very green. It's going to be 4x4 - Christmasy!
Finaly got my desk are moved to the basement. Now I have everything on one level. Next move is out the front door. I'm taking over the basement with fabric. That's a good thing huh? I was going mad running upstairs, then downstairs, then up, then down. Now if I were dropping a few inches off my rear, well then let the stepping begin! But that wasn't happening. Now I can just sit in my chair and roll around. THAT my friends is what I'm talking about.
I know I messed up the comment thingy on here last time. It's fixed now. If not I'm hoping that Miss Thimbleanna lets me know. :) That girl is on top of it!
Be back soon with furry little photos.
