Tea and cookies
Well, I invited some neighbors for tea and cookies on Sunday afternoon. Then, I decided I'd better make some cookies. Yesterday, I made coconut butterballs, Russian teacakes and I made a refrigerator cookie called Ginger Almond Cookies. I almost didn't make it because it called for 4 teaspoons of ground ginger, 1 tablespoon of cinnamon and l tablespoon of ground cloves. Sounded kind of spicy to me. But, they aren't too bad. I was going to bake them when I got home last night but I was tired. I baked them before supper tonight. Today was my day off. We were going Christmas shopping and I guess we did. We went to yard sales and an estate sale. We did buy Dan something and I bought some books for DR and Dan at a yard sale. I did buy something else for Dan but I guess I'd better not put that here as he reads blogs sometimes. We had addresses for all of these sales but we don't know our way around Prescott Valley so the addresses didn't help much. I just drove down a main street until I saw a yard sale sign and I turned. Then, when I was trying to find my way back to the main street we blundered into one of the ones we had an address for. That's where I bought the books. Then, we stopped at another one and I headed back to the main street and went that way for awhile and found another one. Then, having not found the estate sale we headed for Big Five to look at jackets for DR. When we turned onto the street for Big Five there was the sign for the estate sale so we went there. DR bought a lot of train magazines there. I just bought a lot of small things and a stocking cap for myself for when it starts to snow. The weather forecast for tomorrow is clouds moving in and windy conditions. Then, on Sunday, rain and only in the 40's. Snow in the high country. More snow on Monday and Tuesday. I hope they mean the rim country and not us, but it said it could get down to 3,000 ft and we are at 4,200 to 4,500. I guess that might mean us. I think I may have to drive to work or home in the snow this week. Then, it will start to warm up again and be in the upper 50's next week. Yuck!!
Anyway, we went to WalMart to pick up prescriptions and looked at jackets there and he found one he liked that was on sale. It's not a heavy jacket but he wasn't looking for something heavy. He likes to wear layers. We went to Costco and bought a pizza for supper. We had a polish sausage and a coke. Then, we came home because we wanted to go to the post office before it closed the windows at 4 PM. I came home and baked those ginger almond cookies and made the pizza for supper and went and took a shower. Then, I made some more zucchini coconut bars. I still have to put powdered sugar on them. Maybe in the morning before I go to work. Tomorrow after work, I want to make some shortbread cookies and some lemon bars. I was going to make rolled and cutout sugar cookies but they take longer and I'm not sure I want to do it tomorrow night. I need to stop and get some fruitcake mix so I can make stollen for Christmas morning. I want to get some almond filling so I can try the kringle. I might be able to do that on Monday morning. The package of dates that I thought I had turned out to be figs so I need to find a recipe for fig bars now. And I still don't have my Christmas shopping done. We did get the package mailed to grandma this week and the woman in the post office said it would take two or three days, like I believe that at this time of the year. I may still send her a package that she can enjoy for New Year's. I think that maybe I should go to bed now. I have to get up early. Dooley

You have really been busy baking for Sunday tea and cookies .I hope everything
Dooley, you do more in one day than I do in a month. How were the ginger cookies? They sound like they will put hair on your chest.
You know, they weren't bad. They leave a spicy taste but I like gingersnaps so they weren't all that much more spicy. I liked them. Dooley
