Originally, I was supposed to drive over the river and through the woods...vehicular problems ensued, so a change of plans was in order. For a few days, my new plans included lots of reading and DVD watching...solitude, of sorts. It's gone from "flat to fluffy" around here though...my parents are coming, along with a fly-in by my brother who lives in Arizona. So exciting. I've been tidying up around the house...something I've neglected of late. This afternoon I'm baking cookies--a favorite cookie my grandmother used to make. I mentioned the cookies to my brother on the phone a few weeks ago, and we both had a craving for them. I'll post the recipe and a picture of them later.
