Christmas Baking

Well, I just finished my Christmas baking.I made two kinds of cookies - my grandma's date pinwheel cookies and chocolate chip. I can't for the life of me figure out how grandma got those pinwheels to roll up so neatly - mine sucked. But they taste pretty good so I guess their a success. I'm taking some of them for a cookie exchange at work later today. Most of the rest and the chocolate chip are going on a treats tray I'm making up for the security staff at the hospital - they excort me to my car every night (and keep the occasional crazy people under control) so I like to bring them treats once in a while. I also got the makings for some candy that I think I'll add to the tray.

It's a beautiful day in the country. The sun isn't shining but the snow sure brightens things up. In a first for me I've gotten most of my Christmas shopping done. I don't usually start until about now but I actually got a lot of it done in August and September. Wa-hoo!

Well, It looks like I'm actually joining the 21st century. I've got an MP3 player, I'm on Facebook and now I'm blogging. Yikes!
