Today is a Holy Day in our Church. The Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary...so we will be in Church at noon.
I was going to start putting the dough together for Christmas cookies. This year I am not baking all the chocolate, peanut butter etc. cookies. Just traditional Christmas cookies. I just read on Britt's blog about cookie making in Norway. I loved the sweet, simple, buttery cookies that her husband made yesterday. Sometimes we get so elaborate and really simple is better. I have all the ingredients in the house, so when I am finished here, that is what I will do.
I have been doing some watercolor painting this past week. It is so relaxing...when things go right. I ran out of watercolor paper and substituted with some inexpensive paper from our store in town. I couldn't get anything to work. I needed the good paper, so after Church we will go to the big city and visit a craft store and get my supplies. We are getting a snowstorm tomorrow, so I will be in my comfy home with paper to paint on and a yummy cookie to eat.
