Cookie Baking

It was another warm, sunny day in Montana but the weather is changing—we are under a winter storm watch starting tomorrow.  I hauled firewood from our stack up in the pasture down to the house this morning.

Michael felt much better today and even did some work on the Jeep.  He just isn’t ready to do 5 hour sports car rides! 

I baked cookies all morning, ended up with eight dozen—froze the cookies to send to Laci in Italy.  Nat came for lunch and I made meatloaf and twice baked potatoes—he spent a long time after lunch talking with Michael about World War II. 

Tonight Lonn, LoraLee and Katie came for dinner and we had ribs, potato wedges and coleslaw.  And imagine that—we had cookies for dessert! 

I managed to sew some of the quilt squares together for my little Christmas wall hanging from the book my sister and niece sent me for my birthday.  I would have gotten all the squares even put together totally but my dear Pfaff sewing machine died AGAIN!  This is the third time in less than six months—I start to sew a seam, the machine grabs the thread and JAMS, bending the little arm that holds the bobbin mechanism in place!  Michael has recently purchased an online sewing machine repair course and thinks he can fix it—obviously I don’t want to take it back to the people who supposedly fixed it the last two times!  GRRRR

Emmi is sacked out on Michael’s chair—lots of playing tonight with new people!


  1. We have a daughter deployed to the Middle East and while we cannot send food, we are always finding small items to send to her to hopefully brighten her day.

  2. Sounds like you are keeping busy as usual. Laci will certainly enjoy those cookies. We are having a great time with Rod and Deb and have been able to enjoy their grandkids as well.

    See you this winter

    Take Care

  3. I'll just bet that Laci will be a pretty popular girl when those 8 dozen cookies land in Italy!!

  4. Thank goodness Michael is feeling better! Knowing him, he just doesn't understand the concept of "taking it easy"!

    Now, about those cookies, yes, Laci is going to enjoy them so much, and what a wonderful thing to do, but are you absolutely sure you didn't stash a dozen or so away to take to the desert with you???
