Snickerdoodles and such

Shaughnessy and Adam brought Eliot over and we spent the day baking cookies.  Oh my gosh.  The cookies.  Shaughnessy is brilliant and just grabs 8 million little cookie mixes.  Works like a charm.  We made:

Snickerdoodles

Sugar cookies

Molasses cookies

Chocolate Chip cookies

Brownies

Cherry Chip Cupcakes

And Puppy Chow.

Whew.  It was pretty awesome.  The house smells amazing.

We had a fish tank and decided we could downsize as our last two remaining fish were destined to hang around. We’ve had them for years. Crazy, huh?

So I bought a fish bowl, some pretty rocks and plants and we introduced them to their new home.

The next day they both committed suicide.

Who would have thought losing fish could make you sad?

And…now I have a fish bowl.

Recycle Baby…

At night with the lights, it looks so nice!  Shaughnessy spent the day calling me Martha Stewart.

Hm. I don’t think so.  But what else would you do with a big empty bowl??

I didn’t have any time to run yesterday and have been super busy all weekend so today is all about me day.  I’m getting off work and running running.  Even if it’s on the treadmill.  Not messing around.

I think at this time of the year, with the holidays we have to make sure and take extra care of ourselves.  It can be so stressful with family and the pressure of making sure you remembered everyone, did you get everything done??  It’s just insane.  Take the time, even if it’s just 20 minutes.

Here’s a little Eliot for you…

Have a great day!
