My son-in-law, daughter and granddaughter came over today. They took me to get a Christmas tree and then stayed to help decorate it. I was happy when I saw it all together. I wasn’t sure how I would really feel, since Christmas just isn’t the same this year, but I am happy. It is beautiful in my eyes, decorated with love. Of course I have to show it off to you!
I haven’t baked since last Christmas. I thought, what’s the use. No one here to eat any of it and with me being a diabetic, I knew better to tempt temptation.
Today, it is nearing the big ho-ho-ho day so I thought, what the ____. I will bake some chocolate chip cookies. When they were done I of course sampled one. I was thinking they were too flat.
I thought they tasted sweeter in years gone by. I double-checked my recipe as I went since I am having some issues with forgetting things. Yep, I followed it to a T. Well I did it. They are complete and kitchen cleaned up.
Soon I will be getting a real tree to decorate and then I can stand back and smell the good things in my home, see the pretty tree, and maybe sneak one more chocolate chip cookie.
