And a batch of cookies too

Today turned out so much better than yesterday. It was wild and it was noisy, but it was better, the best thing being that my headache is finally gone. Maybe it was that pot of green tea I drank, followed by the pot of Sweet Coconut Chai. Maybe it was that extra determination to try and relax. Maybe it just ran its course. Whatever the reason, I'm feeling better.

My dryer konked out this morning. It tumbles but it doesn't heat up. Instead of coming out of the dryer warm and fluffy, the clothes dried draped about the wood stove. By tomorrow morning they'll all be dry, even if they aren't fluffy. :0)

I did something unusual this afternoon. I mixed up a batch of cookies and baked them after supper. The house smells sweet now and the kids will have a yummy after school snack tomorrow after school.

    1. Got a little kink in the other side of my neck tonight. Think I'll give it some ibuprofen and put it to bed.

  3. Nothing is quite as bad as either the washer or the dryer going on the fritz! In my opinion these are the two most important things in the house. I could do without the stove, microwave or dishwasher - maybe not the fridge - but I absolutely loath going to a laundry-mat:-( I love the smell of fresh baking.....mmmmmm...

    1. If I have to go without one, I'd rather be without the dryer. At least there are viable alternatives. I don't have a dishwasher and the microwave is just a convenience. The fridge has to be way up there next to the washing machine on my list of must haves.
      Cookies, yummy. Yes.
