fellow parents. Get that brewing - it's darned cold out this morning. My thermometer is reading 7 degrees in the backyard. Another round of snow is predicted for today. I believe we'll have a white Christmas this year. After a very busy & emotional day yesterday I have nothing going on today except to (hopefully) mix up a batch of sugar cookies. I'm going to freeze them until this weekend so kt & I can bake & decorate. wm asked that I make a batch of cookies for his group home yesterday. In a very pathetic voice, he let me know that I was the only one who made homemade baked goods on a regular basis. I reminded wm that there were 6 boys in that house; each one of them could get out a recipe book & bake (with supervision). wm just grinned & nodded. I miss doing that for wm & his foster brothers. He wants Oatmeal Scotchies. husband & I are looking for a standing stool I can use in the kitchen next to my island for when I don't have the strength to stand. husband checked into it & insurance may just cover it. Enjoy your Thursday - hope it calm & you accomplish all you set out to do. Hug your loved ones.
