Saturday Goodies

No craftiness to post today. It was a busy week and I've spent most of today cleaning and doing yard work. I was out of town for most of the week but when I got home, look what I was greeted with! The kids all have plans tonight (Go Bengals!!) so my dinner is going to be a Caprese Salad and a baguette dipped in oil flavored with basil, oregano, thyme and parsley from my garden.

My family's favorite cookie is the snickerdoodle. My SIL makes the best ones but mine will do in a pinch. I baked a double batch today. Some will go to welcome a new neighbor that moved in this week, some will go to two of my daughter's friends who have provided car-pooling in my absence this week and the rest will be devoured by my kids and me!

And speaking of goodies, I receive two nice surprises from cyber-friends. Allison took a fabulous vacation to Alaska recently and she sent me these goodies that she purchased along her many stops. Then, Gaylen sent me the most thoughtful card. I'm so glad to have you as friends!!

Enjoy your dinner. It looks like it is going to be good. What better than to have it fresh from your own garden.

Yummm snickerdoodles.

What thoughtful friends you have. Nice package and card.

If you have any of those cookies left by Tuesday, I know the perfect place to get rid them. ;)
