The day dawned bright and beautiful again.  As you can see, we have no snow on the ground.  It's brown. 
The only thing is, within half an hour, the sky was gray.  Absolutely gray, just like it's been all week.  Gray and depressing.

So I decided it was a good baking day.  I got out my recipes, and went to work.  This first batch is called  Double Chocolate Cherry Thumbprint.  They have melted chocolate chips, and whole chocolate chips, and dried cherries in them.  But.  I don't like maraschino cherries and the recipe called for a thumbprint with a maraschino cherry in it for the top.  Not happening!  So I didn't do a thumbprint and I stuck a slivered almond on the top for decoration! 
Do you see three plain cookies on the upper left of the cooling rack?  Sister Ruth is allergic to nuts, so I made her some plain ones!  I don't know if she likes dried cherries, but I'm pretty sure she likes chocolate.  Who doesn't?

This next batch is gingersnap cookies.  I sprinkled a little powdered sugar on the top, just for a little decoration.  They tasted pretty good, but I'll need to try one with a cup of coffee to be sure!
 That is the total extent of my baking!  I guess I had better get busy tomorrow and try to get a few more cookies made.  Something the kiddos would like.  But I am tired tonight.  I'm kind of aching and just ready to call it a day.  So, as soon as I fold the last two loads of clothes, I am going to pop in the movie I bought today!  Right alongside the checkout line where I was buying birthday cards, graduation cards, and a couple of birthday gifts, I saw some movies on sale for $4.99.  And I spied Australia!  I loved that movie, so I bought it.  Now I don't buy movies.  We don't really watch movies.  So this is a big deal!  Movie night!  First a shower, jammies, fleece blanket, and the couch.  Then the movie.  Sounds good, doesn't it?

Sounds like my day! Snow is all going away with yet another storm (blech). We stayed home from church (so icy) and baked cookies and such. My mom used to make those cherry cookies. I miss them.
