well, this must be the beginning of many changes for me-- i totally broke the christmas cookie tradition of green spritz cookies. after mixing up a double batch , i realized i had no green food color, so i bit the bullet and poured in the red. do you girls think i've gone completely over the edge? i now have dozens of red tree cookies and in the grand scheme of things- i guess that's not so bad.
i so enjoyed my evening baking cookies and listening to a christmas cd (that i'm totally ga-ga over), and thinking how very wonderful things are (not including the economy, war , poverty, and hunger throughout the world) .it was just at that moment i felt very blessed. christmas does bring out the best in most of us --- except the old lady at the post office today. she had sealed one of those priority boxes and was desperately trying to open it back up- to stuff something more in it. i helped her, and she started going on about how sick she was of christmas and how she wasn't doing this again. yow! maybe she won't have to do that again--- she was pretty old. i should have given her the pep talk that shannon gave me on how to say "no".... another time...
