|Traditional Shortbread, from my Scottish shortbread mold.|
|Sugar cut-out cookies with gold sugar|
|Pecan tassies. Not really a cookie, but a tartlet. Either way, I can't quit them.|
|Red raspberry thumbprints. I know they are just called Jam Thumbprints, but we only like them with red raspberry jam.|
|Homemade cookie tray for Rob's office. In addition to the above cookies, I tucked in some chocolate chip, chocolate peanut butter chip cookies, and assorted chocolate pretzel treats.|
Thanks for asking after our health, my friends. I am feeling much better, with only a few days of fevers with chills and muscle aches. Rob thinks I picked up some kind of flu-like virus rather than the real flu, since I got the flu shot this year and my illness was rather short for the flu.
After the past few days, I will thank the real flu to keep its distance. Its cousin is ornery enough.
The kids all have varying degrees of the same upper respiratory infection, with poor Baby being the worst off. Her tiny little airways and newbie immune system are no match for it and she is suffering with lots of coughing, chapped cheeks, and a very red nose. And still, her little happy soul struggles to come through.
What a sad little dear.
Come on 2012, we need a little change around here, I think.
