Cookies and Hair Colour...

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

Yesterday was a busy day... I haven't even sat down in front of my sewing machine in about a week. Today I will try to finish up all of my orders (they come in bunches!).

However, I got alot of "at home" stuff done. I made 2 loaves of bread, 2 dozen of my Grandmas cookies (check out her chicken scratch writing - makes cooking from her recipe cards like
cryptography), cleaned out my closet and donated a ton of stuff to Goodwill, took Oliver for a nice walk along the ice-covered lake, then took him to the vet in the afternoon.

The cookie recipe is a recipe that has been passed down through 3 generations! My grandma made them, my Mom made them, and now I am making them (however, with much less sugar!). Does anyone else have any recipes that have been passed down like that? They are so yummy, and the perfect cookie to make when you can't decide what kind of cookie you want. They have peanut butter, coconut, chocolate chips, oats, and they should have rice crispies, but I was all out.
As for Oliver, I must say, I am so happy with the vet I found here, she is the first vet that I have had that seems to really care about the animals and our attachments to them. Oliver got his nails trimmed, his yearly vaccinations, a quick check up and some medicine for an on-going ear problem he has been having.

While we were there I noticed 2 very solemn faced guys in the waiting room who left without a dog... they either were having to put an animal down or had a dog that was pretty sick. I've been so lucky to have a very healthy Oliver, and I can't even think about the day that I might have to make a decision like that. Oliver is such a huge part of my life, he sleeps all snuggled up to me at night, sits by me on the couch, on my lap in the car, by my feet as I cook, and right now is sleeping with his head on my laptop as I type. I'm not sure what I'd do without my monster, 32lbs pug.

In other news, exciting news. I changed my hair colour. I've been blonde for years, for far too many years. My hair was getting pretty brittle and dry and flat and paired with my pale skin, it just wasn't doing anything for me. So, I dyed it back to my natural colour and I love it! I might actually go a tad more red....


  1. I absolutely love your new hair colour, I think it looks great, but you can never have enough red, so go for it ;o)

    Your cookies sounds devine (peanut butter and coconut are two of my favourite things to eat). With my family it's mostly savoury food recipes that have been passed down through the generations...we're not avid bakers, although I do dabble!

    Oliver is gorgeous by the way...hope his ear gets better soon!

  2. I don't bake nearly as much as I wish I could. My grandma was a great baker. My fiances' mom as well can bake up a storm!

    Thanks for the well wishes for Oliver! I hope this ear thing goes away come summer :)
