Cookie Monsters

We had guests yesterday.
Young guests.

They helped us make cookies.
And decorated them.

We had tiny live cookie monsters and food coloring all over the place.

Instead of panicking W and I resorted to this.

Miss sensibly panicked and hid while Mister loved the noisy company.
If it had been up to him he’d have been covered in cookie dough and food coloring too.

When we went to bed W’s hair smelled of cookies.

Baking on a Saturday night!

How domestic can you get?

But, Hey, I like pumpkin pie.

Incredibly restful afternoon at home.
W and M&M have all been napping for hours.

I hardly ever nap in the afternoon.
Strange that.

M&M are cats, of course.
Napping is part of their job description.

Pumpkin pie

What do you call it when you make pumpkin pie without the pie crust?
Pumpkin pudding?

I really dislike pie crust.
But I make a mean pumpkin pudding.

W always look slightly worried when I utter the words
“I’ve been thinking”

Probably because it usually involves domestic work of some sort.
Or organizing something.

She just loves that….

My first hot toddy ever.
Not bad.

After it’s consumed I’ll proceed to hot spiced red wine
(can’t let the leftover red wine from W’s craving on Monday go to waste).

After that I’ll probably crawl to bed.

Does anyone know why all the recipes for hot spiced red wine are big enough to make an entire village get drunk?

Trying to be butch

Yesterday was butch night.

I put together a new bookshelf for the books that’s been piling up on top of the other books in the bookshelves we already have.
W took a feminine nap, for a while….
M&M watched from the safety of the next room over, for a while…

The shelf was almost done.
I took a step back.
A step that got rudely interrupted by the toolbox I’d completely forgotten about.

W woke up.
M&M fled.
I’m saying “ouch” every time I forget that the ligaments around my left knee are not happy with me.

Domestic fail

I washed my winter scarfs in the washing machine today.
I forgot that one of them was made of wool.
Darn it. I liked that scarf.

TheLSBN in fashion mode

I went shopping yesterday in jeans and high heels.
I bought a new skirt, a bunch of cool looking tights and some elegant cardigans for the cold season.

I also almost bought a new dress.
They only had it in black.
I do colors.

I don’t think I’ll tell W how much money I spent.
