Life's little irritants have a way of getting under my skin. Such as...is it just me...or does the fact that Christmas trees are now in the stores before Halloween bother anyone else? It seems like this year in particular has been filled with friends and family talking about decorating early for Christmas. I'm really not a Scrooge. But I would like to digest my turkey from Thanksgiving before stringing lights on the tree.
What about gas prices? I heard on T.V. last night that the price of gas has risen over 30 cents a gallon in a month! That is just insane. Sometimes I think that I should trade in my mini-van and get a car with better gas mileage. But we really need a van so we can haul all the grandkids and BK around. It seems that it just keeps taking more and more to live these days.
I have discovered something that can take the edge off the aggravations of life...cookies. It's hard to be depressed with a warm, fresh-baked cookie in your hand. I recommend them highly...for medicinal reasons, of course. One of my sisters sent me an email this week with links to many, many cookie recipes. I have never seen such a list of cookie recipes. Look below to find your favorite and whip up a batch...or two...and then pick up the phone and invite me over. Life is better lived with homemade cookies...and the friends who bake them.
