I made dough for these chocolate krinkle cookies on Sunday….how fitting that when I baked them tonight we were getting another dusting of snow. They remind me of barren trees with just a hint of snow on their branches. I think that when I make them again I might shape them in little logs and rename them “snow on branches” cookies.
After work, we walked the dogs in an older neighborhood…..
the sounds of our footsteps on the wet sidewalks,
an occasional jangling of dog tags as the dogs shook the fine snow off of their coats.
An easy evening.
Once we were home we decided to have left-overs from Sunday night’s dinner of taco salad and then kick back for the rest of the evening.
The dogs settled in quickly once the fire was lit….there is really nothing more peaceful to me than to have a dog draped across your lap gently snoring while you watch tv or read a book.
