i left work a bit early today for an appointment and found myself home early enough to do a some household chores and, wait for it....bake cookies!
um, me...baking cookies? sure enough!
that is a job usually left to tony, unless the cookies come from a box mix because i fiddle with things too much for cookies to turn out. but turn out they did! and with, like, real ingredients. eggs, and butter, and whole wheat flour! and oh did i make myself sick on cookie dough...mmmmmmmm.
in the hustle and bustle of life, i don't find myself with time like this.
i loved it!
i loved switching out the cookies and wrapping them up individually.
i loved sweeping the floor...seriously!
i loved running up the stairs time and time again for laundry.
ok, so i didn't love scooping the cat box and scrubbing the toilets and so what that i burned dinner...
but i did love (most of all) the look on aidan and nadia's faces when they saw their special treat.
