It is a wet day in the Lilylovekin home. Wet soggy dogs are afoot. The walk was called short and there is much restlessness and pacing going on. I am hunting down grandmas Christmas cookie recipes. Baking was suggested as a way to invoke the Christmas spirit and today seems like a good day to try it. I have few family traditions but my grandmas baking always stands out in my mind. I have an aunt who every year sends us a container full of the traditional goodies. It is always eagerly anticipated and quickly devoured. Between periods of rain I found colors in the yard that reminded me of Christmas. I have so much to be thankful for this holiday season and as these rainy days are upon us it seems like I have another to add to my list. The patches my husband applied to our leaky roof seem to be holding!!! There are no water spots coming through on the living room ceiling.
