Cookies Are Pretty Things Too, Right?!

      I love pretty things! And it doesn't matter what kind of pretty thing it is. :-) I even found this rushing blue stick man to be pretty when I saw him last night! :-) He seems to be telling me"Hurry up, Wug! Let's go get 'em!" ^_^
      I'm kinda sorta in a hurry up mode these days anyway. I'm hurrying up to do everything! Why?....Uhhhhhh....I don't know. LOL I think it's a leftover mode from doing all of the crocheting projects I've been doing lately. :-) But now that my schedule is slowing down, who knows why I'm still in 'blue stick man' hurry up mode!...but I am. And so it goes!! ^_^

      I'm also in 'let's look at pretty stuff' mode. Thus, today's pretty Etsy finds! :-) ...

      If you've followed my blog even for a minute one thing is probably very clear to you....I LOVE COLOR! :-) And those coasters above have color in spades!!! ^_^

      Another thing that would be clear to you is that I love a good nap...any time I can get it!! :-) That's why this little guy caught my eye!...

       A penguin pillow seems like it would be a good nap-buddy! ^_^ {Not as if I really needed a nap-buddy! ^_^ I can nap anywhere, any time, with or without a nap-buddy!...just saying. LOL}
       Pretty music is always a good thing though. I'm listening to some right now, in fact! {Kingdom Melodies, Volume 4} :-) There may even be a french horn or two in there somewhere! :-) ...

      And you know I LOVE flowers!!!!! :-) Especially pretty jewelry shaped into flowers!!!...

      Well, if it's wrong to like a lot of different pretty things...especially pretty flower jewelry....then I don't wanna be right! ^_^

      Okay...enough about Etsy. Let me tell you what I created last night!...I finally finished the other black hooded scarf I was working on. YAY! I'm making a black flower brooch pin for it right now.
      And I also created some more of these! :-) ...

      My famous...because I say they're famous! ^_^...peanut butter chocolate chip coconut  almond cookies!!!...

      I made about 5 dozen of them last night! :-) It almost turned into a 'dough-disaster', because about half-way through the cookie caper I realized I only had half of the butter I needed to make them!! O_O
      Thanks to a couple of good neighbors it didn't turn out to be a disaster. And, in fact, I built some stronger bonds with the neighbors! ^_^ One loaned us butter, but it wasn't in a stick. It was a tub. And it was 'light' butter. O_O Thank you good neighbor, but uhhhhhh...'light' butter in my cookies, and me trying to figure out how much 'light' butter to measure into how many 'light' tablespoons......No!!!! LOL It was too much figuring for this tired cookie-craving brain to do!! LOL
      I had to borrow a 'stick' of 'regular' butter from another exchange for a dozen cookies to all neighbors involved!! ^_^ 

      It worked. And we all have cookies this morning!! ^_^ I was too tired to take pictures of the cookies after I sugar-forked the top of them, and after they were done a baking. But trust was done!! ^_^ I only wish you could smell my house this morning!!!! more pretty things, cookie-talk, or tea! But I do have tons of falling rain...and a poem.....and lots of milk! :-)) Have a good day, Everybody! ♥


You can build a reputation,
build a fire, build a stair;
You can build a neighborhood,
build a table, build-A-Bear!

You can build a layered cake,
build some buildings, build a boat;
You can build a website business,
build relationships remote.

You can build vocabulary,
build up friendships old and new.
Build up globe-ular relations
if you really wanted to.

You can build upon your knowledge,
build a table, bridge, or train;
build a step into the future,
or just shelter from the rain.

You can build an awesome snowman,
and not waste him. Make a cone!
Or can build up folks around you,
so they never feel alone.

All this building talk,
shows the things that you can make
if you build a wordy poem...
and you also stay awake!


  1. Your cookies look and sound wonderful with that combination of flavors! I love adding coconut to chocolate chip cookies. Enjoy the holidays! Merry Christmas.

    1. And they taste even better, Pammy Sue! ^_^ I'm down 2 dozen so far, but I have plenty left!! LOL...By the way, I don't celebrate Christmas. I' one of Jehovah's Witnesses. But I am looking very much forward to having hubby home all day with me. It's gonna be a game-playing, cookie-eating good time!! :-)
