Rain Rain Go Away

As of yesterday at 6:26am the record of 61.33 inches of rain, set in 1889, was broken, 2018 will now go down to the rainiest year in history...let me tell you, folks, this is one record I am not happy to see broken.

You see...I have an issue with gray cloudy skies...gray skies make me moody and a little crabby, and it's hard for me to stay upbeat and happy. People talk about liquid sunshine, but the reality is it's mud mud mud around my house, with two large dogs and almost zero grass left in the yard we have large mud puddles for Bodhi Boy to run and jump in.

I have one week to get my baking done, and my sour cream pound cakes do not like to be baked in the rain...so today I'll start making cookies, mostly for Andrew to take to work and a few for the house.

Here is what is on the baking menu for today

Laura Bush's Cowboy Cookies

Grandma's Molasses Cookies 

Vanilla Sugar Cookies with Royal Icing

Off to gather the ingredients, I'll check back later with updates on how far along I get on my cookie list.

Until Next Time
Be Kind

A Dream

Warning...this blog post may cause some tears, but believe me, that are happy ones. I had a dream last night, and my father was in it. Now for those of you that don't know, I lost my father in 2013, and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of him. I'm sure I've had dreams about him, but they never seemed real...this one was real. Let me set the dream up for you... I was back in my hometown, Havelock North Carolina, and shopping for some type of necklace, and I hear a voice behind me "not that one, pick the blue one"... I turn around, and there was my father, I started screaming and crying, screams, and tears of joy because there was my father in the flesh. We had a nice long hug, and I asked where he had been because I knew he hadn't been around for almost a full 7 years. It seems that he had been pulled for a special mission with the government and couldn't tell any of us, including my mom. Now, speaking of my mother, she doesn

2021 = Self-Care

 2020 wasn't the best of years, it wasn't the worst, but that is behind us and I'm looking forward to 2021 that is full of blank pages. Walk with me, cook with me, read with me, craft with me...just come out and hang with me. Until Next Time Be Kind

Weather

Isn't it funny how there are certain things that can cause a major discussion...religion, politics and the weather.  Spending a good chunk of my life in Eastern North Carolina... See that little town, Havelock, yep that's where I grew up...anyway back to the weather. Ya see, growing up there I know a thing or two about humidity, to say it's thick is an understatement. The threat of hurricanes coming up the coast was an annual event and we took it in stride because that's what you do.  Snow...don't go there, when it snows everything stops, seriously, no road salt trucks, plows, what's that?  In 1989 there was a snowstorm to beat all snowstorms, poor Skip (the local weather legend) is still talking about it. Sitting on my front porch in Virginia this Sunday morning the air is so thick I can actually see it and you can almost taste it..yep it's THICK...and ya know what it feels pretty good.  But ya know what feels better, the a/c when you do walk back
