It's that time of the year....

and I am up bright and early today, 5:45 AM. I always feel better when I am up by 6AM. I looked out the kitchen window and lo and behold, my car is covered with snow again, after I just cleaned it off yesterday. The temperature is 16 F and the snow is still falling. We are in for the big chill again tonight with below zero real temps. I don’t even want to think what the wind chill will be. This means leave the cabinet doors in front of the faucets open and a trickle of water.
Yesterday I got really energetic and cleaned the kitchen floor thoroughly. A job I hate to do that I rank right up there with cleaning the bathroom.
Then wondering what to do next I made up some Old Fashioned Raisin Cookie dough. These are my son’s favorite cookie. As I was talking to my sis I said I guess I will end up eating all of these cookies. And then she told me to put them in a priority mail box and mail them to my son. Light bulb goes off, great idea, but wait a minute, $10.95 is pretty steep to send one tin of cookies. So I marched my little self back to the kitchen and made up chocolate chip/pecan cookie dough and put in the fridge to keep the oatmeal raisin dough company. When I get off the computer in a few minutes I am going to bake enough cookies to fill that priority mail box.
The weeks are going by so fast. Can you believe that it is only 59 days till spring, give or take a day or two. I am longing for warmer temps so I can walk around the cemetery again. I never did get that explored thoroughly.
Now, marching off to the kitchen to bake the cookies. Which one is your favorite? I have to say oatmeal raisin is my favorite homemade cookie. I don’t like the kinds you buy in the store though.
