She of Little Brain over at The One Acre Wood has given me an award (yay!) which means so much to me because she is one of the first blogs I read when I first found the blogosphere.

Thank you so much, SOLB! It’s so nice to see you back and writing again:) I would like to share this with all the blogs that I check in on every day but there are too many too list which may be why I get in trouble with time management at work. So I will leave it as a gift to anyone who would like to have it because you are all “way cool!”

Tomorrow is my father’s birthday. In preparation, we have been baking lots of cookies, partially to use as his “cake” and partially to bring to our respective offices as a general Happy Holidays gift. Actually, we had grand illusions of baking lots of cookies but life got in the way, as it is wont to do, and we only got through two different recipes. We’re getting the recipes from a cookie magazine and this is the first time we’re using them. It’s a cookie tryout, if you will, because a) some of the recipes are NOT living up to their promise; and b) neither of them made nearly as many as the recipe said they would. So we may be giving up on using these for office gifts and let the guinea pigs (family members*) go wild and eat as many as they like. Then, this week, we’ll pick and choose which ones were best, double those recipes, and try for a cookie a night. By Friday, we should have a fair amount to put out for the hordes at work.

*no family members were hurt during this testing period.
