One Last Hurrah and then some!

This is one of those random hodgepodge posts; I hope no one minds. Actually I'm enjoying several last hurrahs today:

  • Since the east coast has been blasted by some wintery weather today, my hubby was kind enough to drag in some wood and I'm enjoying a blazing fire in the gameroom while the Soundscapes music channel plays in the background. This may be the last burn session until fall so I'm camping out here for the rest of the day.
  • I baked a batch of oatmeal cookies today. Once it starts to get warmer, I don't bake nearly as much. Which may be a good thing. I've been on vacation all week, and unless you count painting, I haven't gotten any real exercise in quite a while.
  • Sniff. Did you get the last paragraph - my vacation ends today! So this is the last hurrah for blogging and reading with abandon! Sigh. Pray my re-entry goes easy on me tomorrow. Anyone want to guess how many new unread emails I'll have in my inbox when I get back tomorrow? Let's just say I hope I've gotten through the bulk of them by noon!
So there you have it - my afternoon in a nutshell. Coming soon: I plan to review Prayer - Does It Make Any Difference? by Philip Yancey. Stay tuned!!

A week's vacation! *Sigh* That sounds like heaven. As does the oatmeal cookies and fire!

Yum, I would love some oatmeal cookies right now.

I pray your day goes well tomorrow! It's tough getting back in the swing of things.

I'm going to guess 121 emails, including any spam that slipped by your filter. You'll have to tell me if I was WAY off. ;-)

I stop baking so much about this time of year, too. My cookie jar is actually full of **gasp** store-bought cookies.

It always takes a while to get back into the craziness when vacation ends. I don't envy you all those emails.

Well, the way today went, I bet you could squeeze in another fire or two... but I'm glad you decided to dig in and enjoy that one. I'm the same way about baking, although to be honest, I didn't do much baking at all this year. And as much as I love the call of baking when fall comes around, I'm more than ready for a few months of sunshine and warmth!

I think I saw where the NE was getting a big storm. Hope your week off was good, we'll hope for pics of your painting projects!

Since I'm one who is immediately blessed by your Saturday baking jaunts, I wish I could have grabbed one of the oatmeal - a favorite. And I hope you enjoyed your last day off - I do enjoy fires, but I have to say I enjoy sunshine more. I'm ready to put a pretty candle thing in that fireplace for the next 6 months!

Hope you enjoyed every last second of your vacation :)

Geesh, a fire, homemade oatmeal cookies, a book, Soundscapes, it just doesn't get any better than that!
