This said, It should be known that the towels are out. I expect snow within the next 24 hours. Drive carefully and check your wiper fluid.
It’s the perfect night for cookies and hot chocolate. Fittingly enough, I bought two mongo-huge boxes of hot chocolate packets from Sam’s Club today and I’m making cookies tonight. Mostly the cookies are to take to my brother and sister-in-law’s for Thanksgiving, but I’m sure there will be enough for little snacks tonight. I’m making Danish Spritz cookies and Mexican wedding cookies. I am neither Danish nor Mexican, but I love these particular cookies. Yummy.
The wedding cookies were a last minute decision so I had to go to the store and get pecans this afternoon. I figured by going early, I’d miss the Thanksgiving grocery crowd. Big mistake. It was a zoo! Bodies everywhere. They were all still breathing when I left the store…in case you were wondering. I only growled under my breath once. Anyhoo, it seems that everyone and their sixteen brothers was at the store—and in front of my cart. I’m sorry, it’s like the road! Look before crossing aisles! I did my very best to be super pleasant. I can’t spread the Holiday Spirit if I’m a hag. Oh but it was tempting.
Children: It was Boy Scout night. The assistant who’s supposed to be teaching the camping badge didn’t show for the second week in a row. Thank goodness I had a back-up plan. We practiced knots…and I contemplated demonstrating them to (on???) my husband last night but I was too tired. Maybe tonight. Whoops, that probably shouldn’t be under kids. Oh well, I’m sure there won’t be permanent mental scarring. My kids are the ones who said “Mom, when you’re done doing what you’re doing, I need to talk to you.” Little mood breakers!!
