Somehow it is Friday again, and snowing like a bandstand (as we say in our family -- long story!) so I'm taking a few minutes to share five blessings from the week.
And no, those Valentine cookies aren't real. I did use a cookie cutter to make them, though. Need to get back to making some felt food, as I still have grandkids young enough to be interested. My Nevada daughter told me the other week that they had gotten out some of the felt food for the youngest one, but all of the kids ended up getting involved -- playing grocery store, restaurant, and more.
1. Breakfast out with my hubby last Friday. We went to a new-to-us place with a pretty limited breakfast menu, but thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the atmosphere. Wish I had thought to take some pictures.
2. Finding time to blog about the Christmas cookie book I made with Shutterfly. It's on my Christmas blog -- Mrs. T's Christmas Kitchen -- so do check it out if you've never visited. I'm so tickled with this book, as it's a project I've been thinking about for awhile. (Yep, those are felt Christmas cookies on the cover. Recipe for those not included, though.) I have lots more photos of pages from the book in the post on my Christmas blog.
3. Being able to get out and walk both Monday and Tuesday. The weather hasn't been conducive since, but those days we had mostly bare roads to walk on and got in probably close to 8 miles.
4. A fun day in the kitchen on Valentine's Day. I have a friend with a Valentine birthday and really wanted to bake a few goodies for her. Of course, Mr. T was delighted, as well!
