Yesterday’s blog post was supposed to be about making time to write. You’ll notice that it didn’t appear, as it hasn’t yet been written.

Instead, my husband asked yesterday if I’d make cookies so he could participate in his friends’ cookie swap at work. So I’ve been nerdishly finding recipes, making trips to _3_ different stores (though all were part of 2 combined trips for other things.) And not writing. (This doesn’t count. This is thinking “aloud.”)

Anyone care to wager how many of five recipes I’ll end up making? Here’s the pie-in-the-sky (or rather, cookies-in-the-sky) list: Metropolitan millet muffins (which I wrote about before but am not going back to find the link for; sorry! See–not writing; thinking aloud.) 2 types of cake-mix cookie (to compare, of course), red velvet whoopie pies, buckeyes and mint thumbprints. Also prepping to take a meal to a sick friend for tomorrow.

So, writing? Not so much. Also, please feel free to leave comments, as many of you do. I’m getting SLAMMED with spam lately, so approving (or not) comments has gotten discouraging.

    Buckeyes! Boo-ya! I think I’m going to have to put those one my list.

    I said ONE! I only asked for ONE kind of cookie! I said chocolate chip would be fine.

    It’s not my fault!

    The recipe I found for buckeyes has ground up graham crackers in it! A far cry from the melted paraffin one my mom used when we were growing up.

    G, It’s not your fault that you mentioned Christmas cookies and I went a little nuts? What did you _think_ I was going to do? You know me pretty well, after all. Also, after a morning spent cooking I have only made the millet muffins, so all “cookies” are at this point theoretical.
