Just finished baking my fourth round of cookies .. enough for today. Only have 4 other type to bake tomorrow .. then we pkg them up and take them to our elderly neighbors. We do this every year and they love it. We are a day late this time and one of them stopped me this morning and asked if my oven was broken LOL I assured him it was working just fine and he would get his package tomorrow.

I am sitting here hving a hard time trying to adjust to not wearing glasses except for reading. The computer screen is very bright and hurts my eyes. I can't look at it for too long. No one told me I would be having such a hard time. the glasses I am using are 2.5 strength and I need a 2.0 It just doesn't make sense to go and buy a pair that I will never use again after I get my prescription ones. I find myself having the reading glasses down on the edge of my nose so I can look up and see the TV. Sure makes yo feel like Granny.

Tuesday is The Pirate's birthday. He wants the same present he wants every year. A car for his birthday and have it registered with insurance for Christmas. Good luck with that one son. Although I did give him a small Match Box car one year.

I still have the mess from the cake to clean up. Off I go!

The Sunday paper is at end of the driveway -- I have my woolly bathrobe on this morning, since we have a cold snap and it's only 37F out there. Can I snatch up the paper before the neighbors see me?

If it's not white, brown or black I don't see a problem...otherwise they might think there is a bear in your driveway.

Whoa, Addie -- next you'll be trying to get me to streak up and down the road. Not a pretty sight -they'd arrest me for sure.

PF, actually we've been having bear problems down here - black bears, not those big ol' grizzlies. And the bathrobe is pink, fortunately.

Bear problems everywhere...ours should be hibernating, but they are out and about.

Pink wooly bathrobe, you should be fine. I remember grandma driving me to school in her robe and curlers. I wear sundresses as nighties, so I can go out to the trash bin or mailbox if'n I feel like it.
