Wow.....Winter just blew in here in the Northeast!!!! We have white out conditions, and boy, is it beautiful!!!! Red and gold leaves are still clinging to my pear tree in the front yard, and now they are all frosted!!! I love this time of time....fond memories and making new memories....

Of course, I work at home, so don't have to mess with the traffic out there, and I get to choose my own hours.....I still work long hours and mostly on the weekends too. The computer takes up a lot of my time, since I am sooooooo challanged here!!!

Its time to start sifting through all my cookie recipes to see which ones I will bake this year....when I had a family to cook for I would make about 15 different recipes, store them all in colorful tins stacked in the laundry room where it was nice and cold!!!! However, now I will only do 3 or 4 kinds......and besides, baking got very expensive......the cost of butter and all the other ingredients....and nuts are outrageous......and the heating of the oven.......some parts of life are only for the very wealthy!!!! None the less, this is still my favorite time of year....and my birthday is coming up!!!!
