it was one of those slow weeks. i have a cold. everything was typical of life in these parts. i'd brought home a treasure from my sister-in-law but didn't want to post that yet so i'd been wondering what in the world i had that was blog-worthy for this week when i woke up to this sight on saturday morning. we were expecting 1-3 inches so it wasn't the fact of snow (early october? yes, i guess it is the fact of the snow) it was the amount. easily 5" at 7:00 and still snowing!!
tim cleaned off the driveway, took me to work (which i really appreciated), helped me shovel the walks at the library (which i hope the city appreciated),and made the most delicious beef stew for lunch!!
later that afternoon i tried a recipe for flourless peanut butter cookies that had caught my attention some time ago.
2 cups chunky pb; 2 cups brown sugar; 2 eggs; 2 tsp baking soda. mix it. bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes on an ungreased cookie sheet. let rest a couple minutes before removing to wire racks. they were very good.
my flower beds are so sad. i hadn't cleaned anything out, there were still daisies blooming, my lavendar was waiting to be cut. i'm assuming the weather will warm up again and i will have quite a mess to deal with.....
and i can still look forward to posting on leslie's treasure.
