Still Going StrongPosted: December 19, 2009 | |
Well hello from the north pole! We are passing 17in around these parts.
I spent most of the day baking cookies and listening to Christmas hymns. For some reason Christmas hymns remind me more of the holidays then the cheesy carols on the radio. I think it is because I was part of the church choir as a child and we always did so much around the holiday. I miss it in a way.
I also broke into my Winter Warmer aka gingerbread cookie beer.
I then set out to make gingerbread cutout cookies, but my dough turned out kind of dry so I made gingerbread bites. I had to have one right out of the oven!
In total I made about 10dz cookies today and I still need to make mini loafs and candied almonds tomorrow. Thank God those are much less time intensive. In total I probably had about 6 cookies today, not bad if I do say so. I also made sugar cookie stars that are unpictured but the same ones that I made last week for the Raven’s game with the almond royal icing.
I needed to untwist after all that cookie baking so I did 30min of yoga sculpt and felt 10x better! I love all of the yoga pushups in that one!
I was lacking some servings of veggies today so that is what I made up for another triple veggie plate.
I am hoping to play SceneIt! on the XBox with Nick, but he seems to be napping. I will leave you will some outside shots of the winter wonderland.
About 4in of snow on top of our railing.
See you on the other side of the drift!
