Hey there! How was your week? Yes, I really want to know.
I’m doing the fall change over of clothing, putting summer stuff up & getting out the long sleeves. These weeks completely suckith. There are clothes all over the house because of course 3 or more of the children are in different sizes than last year, so I have summer piles, winter piles, too small piles, piles that 1 kid has out grown but another kid can wear, and piles that everyone has out grown and needs to go to the resale shop. And I guess it doesn’t help that I detest this task so much that I put it off and it takes me a week or 2 to finish. I’m really thinking we should just move somewhere warm and they can be in shorts year round. That is totally logical and would be completely worth it!
It was baking week for our proactive acts of kindness! We made peanut butter cookies, oh yum! Ok, I just had to get up and go get a couple just typing that. I have a weakness for cookies baked goods food.
PAOK # 27 Bella took some of the cookies to her teacher as a thank you for teaching her. I hope she liked them. Some people have issues eating the baked goods of people they don’t know that well. (unfortunately, that would include me.) Because really, How do you know their kitchen is sanitary, or they washed their hands before making your food? Is that weird? Don’t answer that.
PAOK # 28 We also took a plate of cookies to the police station as a thank you for their dedication to protect and serve. I don’t think that happens very often because they seemed to be really confused as to exactly why we were bringing them cookies. Of course that made me doubt myself and I was slightly embarrassed that we brought cookies to strangers. I’m trying to get over that because once I explained, they seemed to genuinely appreciate it. Sometimes it’s hard to step out of our comfort zone and do things people don’t expect.
These are great cookies and only use 3 ingredients. I’ll put the recipe in the Eat This & Like It recipe section of VivoBello.
Apparently there was sun in Bella’s eyes and she couldn’t look directly at me.
But, how cool is it that the 2 officers we talked to were women!
