Good times

Last night we cranked up the love tunes, got ourselves good and liquered up, and...







... BAKED COOKIES!!!








A bit of Percy Sledge, a bit of white wine, a few tubes of icing and a load of chocolate chips. Aww yee-eah, baby!





(The four bakers represented 4 different countries, so we each decorated a cookie in honor of our home turf. Aren't we cute?)












This morning we had nice weather in Bristol for the first time this spring. (It's gone now, of coure, but for a couple hours it was rather enjoyable. Windy as all hell, but warm and sunny.) I took a copy of Piers Plowman up to Brandon Hill Park, found myself a sunny spot on the hillside sheltered from the wind, and laid down with my book, enjoying the smell of the purple hyacinths that surrounded me. That, my friends, is what higer education should be!

How come you guys only do cookies when I'm out of the country? I'm bummed I missed it! But it sounds like fantastic fun :) Schedule me in for the next cookie bake :) **ZEN HUGS**

Cookies. Love it. Very pretty. I do cakes myself. Chocolate generally. So... Is Hairy Welsh?

We missed you, Ez! We really did stand around saying "pink butterfly shortbread cookies? Ezri would love this! It's too bad she can't be here. We'll be sure to do it again when she gets back!"

we really did say that; i'm not making it up! and we WILL do it again when you come home.

As an Irishwoman, I am hugely proud that even something as non-alcholic as a cookie (or biscuit, as you're going to have to start saying) has a bloody great pint of guinness on it.

I think that you shouldnt be posting telling us about the cookes - you should be posting us the cookies...(although they look way too pretty to eat)
