I have finally gotten into the mood. Yesterdays snowfall was enough to help me cross over the line. This afternoon I'm headed for my first Christmas concert of the year. The tree is up and the lights are working, which is always a good sign. Now all I have to do is start the baking. This is the only time of the year I bake cookies. My mom had a recipe for these delicate little cookies we called "Snowballs". There was so much butter and sugar in them, they melted the moment you put one in your mouth. Yesterdays gentle snowfall reminded me of Moms' cookies and the fun time we had baking them, all four of us gathered around the old kitchen table, barely enough room to move around in the kitchen. I hope this season holds many warm and cherished memories for you.
Always happy to hear from you.
