Starting off the New Year Right

Hello everyone in Bloggerland! At my friend Jaynie's urging, I am here to write a new post. (But it will have to be quick because I need to leave for work in a few minutes!)

Here is a picture of my favorite cookie I made over the holidays:
It is a huge sugar cookie with left-over pecan rocha strussle on top. Yum! Bryan convinced me to make the cookie so large because I was despairing of ever being done rolling and baking all that dough. Note to self: next year, do a half-batch of sugar cookies!

And here is my puppy dog, celebrating the new year:

I hope you are all having a good start to your new year. I have been keeping my sink shiny, and reading a lot more (both in the Bible and other books). Ooh... and I have been playing my piano. So I have been keeping myself busy and doing things that I enjoy.

This past weekend I baked my first loaf of bread for the cold season (I can't believe I've waited this long!) and I have some more dough in the fridge, so I will be baking more soon. I will try to snap a few pictures and post them here.

Until then... happy baking!

Mmm... looks tasty! :)

By the way, my mom emailed me a link to this site and I thought of you.


I especially like the garden one! Hope you find a little inspiration. :)

Looks like my last comment didn't have the whole link visible -- so just in case, here it is again - broken up so you can get it all.
