Happy Winter Solstice!

Happy Winter Solstice! It is still snowing- and it doesn't show signs of stopping.

I kept busy on this snowy day. I baked 6 different kinds of cookies today! I am exhausted. Chocolate Chip, Sugar Cookies, Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter & Banana, Russian Tea Cakes, and Coconut Macaroons. They all came out great! Unfortunately it took me all day to make them.

Right now the smell of cinnamon is drifting thru the house. I am making ornaments out of pinecones my sister collected for me. All in all I think my day was well spent, even if I didn't write that paper for English class yet. Maybe I'll do that after I eat some dinner.


  1. Oh, it looked like there was an error when I was posting a comment, so sorry if this ends up here twice.

    Happy winter solstice! It sounds like a wonderful day celebrating with warm, yummy goodness and creativity. Enjoy! And I hope you get some rest too :)

  2. Happy Solstice to you as well!!
    SNOWING here, (western Oregon, US) too!! Lots & lots - most in about 50 years - maybe 20" now?? My chihuahua Gracie has to navigate my footprints thru the snow to her (now) favorite tree!! She's quite a trooper - seems to like snow better than rain :)

    Yea on the cookies, my dau & grands made some, too - & I made hot chocolate :)

    Going to go light some candles & play my harp! (I read Twilight - now trying to vorrow the next one :)

  3. I wish I could smell all of your baking ~ the cookies all sound delicious!! Happy Winter Solstice to you :-)

  5. Happy Holidays to you and yours! May your life be filled with the sweetness of cookies, the beauty of decorations and the happiness they bring! :)

  6. now you are on your way towards the light! And my light begins to wane, although I know we still have about 2 months of hot heat and summer..

  7. HI Tori, I found you through Robyn's blog - tales of inglewood.
    Happy Winter Solstice to you. I love cookie making, but it really is labour intensive. I'll bet your kitchen smells good.

  8. Awesome chicka!!
