My posts will be a bit haphazard over the next week as I try to get the house ready for the baby to come home.
Mr. Coffee was pretty focused on *finally* finishing my book-shelves and getting himself ready for the trip, so I have a dirty house, a laundry mountain, a wreck of a play room, and a bored 4 year old on my hands. I have to attend to all of these, best as I can, before Tuesday.
I also really want to get everything I can onto my groovy new book-shelves! I am adding some Craigslist finds to furnish my “library/music room” (used as a lonely and pristene living room by the house’s previous owner). The whole process has been mighty fun because my co-director (M) had a requirement that everything be BLUE; this made it a bit of a treasure hunt. I will attempt to post a picture once it’s, more or less, done.
I had fantasies of weeding the yard and painting a room, but that’s obviously what they were – fantasies. I have fantasies of a long nap as well.
So, in the spirit of the upcoming randomness, I would like to humbly request a good Snickerdoodle recipe. This is a Midwestern cookie, I am sure, as I had never heard of it before I crossed the Mississippi and no one in my good Southern cake, candy, and cookie-making family makes these.
M and I tried to make some last week, and we ended up with some yummy sugar-cinnamon biscuits. Cookies – well, that is something they were not.
