december2008-0061Just three days away from the Winter Solstice and I am feeling kind of emotional about it all. Luckily, the emotions are good- I’m pushing aside all worries about being ready or doing the right things at the right time. Here we are watching snowflakes and baking cookies. Here we are remembering our loved ones that left us this year- and sending love to those who are dealing with the pain of lose. Here we are being generous with ourselves. Here we are looking at the winter sky- realizing how long and dark the winter can seem. He were are remembering summer fruits and the feel of warm sand on our toes.

Cookies made yesterday in between snow outings:

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Good old Oatmeal Rasin Cookies
