Aren't these lovely chocolate chip cookies? Which I have made for 45 years, at least?
I am still laughing.
It's not just the fact that I forgot to leave the butter out all night to soften....
I FORGOT HALF THE FLOUR!
I forgot I was using the small measuring cup... and had a good laugh
when I realized what I had done.
However,.... I had to throw them all away and start over.
Part of Batch Two, delivered to son Jeff this afternoon as part of his Christmas.
Whew. I haven't lost my mojo after all.
Two more batches being made tomorrow, as we have the mail girl to
gift, and the Fed Ex man who delivers Keith's weekly protein packs.
Both great people.
Saturday evening, after we walked the dogs, Nathan
and I decided to go find a present for his girlfriend, Rachel.
Rachel loves pandas.
We went to Walmart (crazy inside) and there were NO pandas.
We decided to walk next door to Kohls.
Look at some of the things we saw on the way.
Mums still blooming on December 19.
This is a blurry picture of veronica, also blooming.
There were at least 3 veronica plants blooming.
Every single bush we passed had buds swelling on them.
A crazy December!
As it happened... we found pandas JUST INSIDE Kohls,
for 5.00 each. (part of their books/stuffed toys promotion).
All the books for the pandas were gone, so
Nathan bought two pandas for Rachel, and I found
him a nice bag and some tissue.
I told him to get a nice card for her and put it in the bag, and
we also put different kinds of candy in it for her.
His first gift for a girlfriend!
He is saving right now for prom in April, and willingly helped me
while he was here to earn a little money.
Here was the little pond tonight as we went for our walk.
The skies appear to be clearing, but wind and rain are in the forecast for the next 3 days.
Here were the three mallard drakes and one mallard duck you can just barely see in the above picture.
We walked at Basehor City Park, where the squirrels are still active.
The same night we shopped, Nathan and I saw a white squirrel in Basehor, and I am
keeping my eye out for it.
That is not it.
The dogs and I rounded a corner to see this hawk on a pole.
Not a redtail, it is a Coopers. I had to lighten the picture considerably to
even be able to make it visible, because the lighting was so bad.
It didn't stick around long when I stopped the car.
Tomorrow night, Jax and Paiton stay with us, as their
parents both have to work Christmas Eve, and
their interim day care is closed on Thursday.
We are trying to think of something fun to do... maybe the Chipmunks movie!
