Christmas Cookies, Part Two

Second day of cookie baking, and we now have Mint Chocolate Chip Bar Cookies and Almond Joy Bar Cookies. They are both new recipes, and I think they’ll be pretty good. I had to make the Mint Chocolate Chip’s while thinking of my daughter, Becky. She has always loved mint chocolate chip ice cream. I hope she likes these cookies. I’ll know by this time next week, I think.

I heard from my editor friend. We are going to re-work some things in my book, but I won’t begin until after Christmas probably. I am enthused to have a professional with whom I can work and complete my novel. It will be a lot of work, and I’ll learn a lot.

Tomorrow, Gavin will spend the night with us, and he’ll be happy to spend time with the puppies. He loves dogs and has fun with Lexie and Goldie. It’ll be another fun night with him. It won’t be much longer and he will not want to come hang out with Grandpa and Grandma anymore. It’s kind of tough to keep them entertained when they are old enough to go be with their friends. My mom used to say, “It’s one thing when your kids outgrow you, but it’s really bad when your grandkids outgrow you.” That will be true.

It sounds as if there are a lot of people getting the flu. If you haven’t had a flu shot, please get one. It will take at least a couple weeks for the immunity to build. You don’t want to feel crummy and you don’t want to pass these sicknesses on to other people. Small children and older adults are very vulnerable. Take care of each other, and we’ll all get through the winter.

Sometimes these dogs do things I cannot believe. For some reason, the lower corner cabinet with the lazy susan shelf was opened. Lexie opened it. And as I walked into the kitchen, I see her with her head stuck inside a box of cereal, eating it up. Naughty puppy! It’s funny how they can imitate us by watching how we do things. That’s how Goldie learned to pick up the newspaper and carry it in the house. Who knows what they will learn next??

Thank you for taking time to read today, I appreciate it so much. I’ll be here again tomorrow, and I hope you are, too.
