I guess Masterchief could tell I was feeling a little mopey on Sunday morning because he told me to get my rear-end on that elliptical and "work it girl 'cause I'm taking you to Jungle Jim's today". Woooo-hooo. He sure knows the way to my heart. They have all kinds of food there. I especially like to browse through the international section where the food from India is. I love me some curry...oh yes I do!
I might even have a little bit of it around here somewhere.....
Picked up a few kitchen goodies while there. I needed a meat tenderizer and didn't want a metal one (they hurt more when you accidently hit your finger). I also wanted a whisk I could use in my non-stick pans that was molded into the handle. I had a cheap one but I had to be so careful when I washed it because the handle would fill up with dishwater...yuck!
The weather man says we might get more snow as we get closer to the weekend so I thought I'd go out today to browse through the antique store and thrift stores. Some of you brought up my Charles Chips tin that is up above my kitchen cupboards when I posted about the light we put up there. Well today I found a another tin that I had never seen before. I didn't know "Charles" also made cookies!
I received a very nice surprise on Monday. I knew the post offices were closed on Monday but I was pleasantly reminded that the men in brown (UPS) still deliver.
I am making slow but sure progress on Liam's sampler.....
I'm having problems with my left wrist lately and that's the one I hold my work with. I have to take frequent breaks to allow it to rest.
Another joy of being past 40 is when your eyes begin to fail you, right? I picked out my frames on Monday and should have my new glasses in about a week. Gee I hope they don't slide down my nose during a hot flash... *rolls eyes in disgust*
Masterchief is pacing the floor and I can hear his belly growling so I better go feed him. He has requested a corned beef panini tonight.
Beth - The dough for those soft sugar cookies is almost like thick cake batter so there is NO way I could roll them out. I have to refrigerate the dough overnight and then carefully pat the dough out to cut it. They are one of my favorite cookies because I remember my grandmother making them when I was little but they are also the most difficult to make.
Bekca - Your comment almost made me cry! The words "I have never had a home made cookie" should never be uttered by anyone. If you didn't live so very far away I would make you any kind you would want. I even thought of sending some to you but I'm not sure what shape they would be in by the time they reached you.
Well that's it for today friends. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. Each one offers more encouragement than you know!
I need to go get busy on that panini. I'll be
