My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Ever have one of those days?

Okay, I woke with a sinus headache, drank 2 cups of coffee, took my daily medications, read my email...Hubby was not at the top of his game either  and that spells  friction in our home, with both us  in not so good moods.... I don't know about yours....But,  Knew I was in for a different kinda day. Have you ever felt this way? I seem to be in his way today.. and sure didn't feel like going out for the day.. to give us each some space. I have so many things I should do.. (with Company coming Friday) You know beds changed,  get guest room ready.  Plan a menu for meals,  Grocery shop...Although I know we will eat out at least once.. ( and I look forward to that!)
Well  as I sat for another hour, I had done nothing long enough.. So  got  it together.... ( I didn't even tell him I was leaving)  I know that was bad.... but...I went to town. ...drove my car through the car wash.. Heck! I treated my car to a real bath, wax and shine.. splurged & got  the $10 special..then filled  up the tank$35 more dollars.... drove to the butcher shop $30 more dollars spent..  realized as I was coming back I just missed the post lady & I had a rebate to send off... oh well that will be there tomorrow....... gathered an arm load of mail (the 3 books Clay ordered came,   now he will be happy...)..I made my way on home, into the garage where I removed the excess paper products from the car.. decided  to vacumned the floor mats & washed the inside windows..*how  do they get so dirty? Sprayed that "vanilla scent thoroughly inside the car.. Gee I love  that smell... Put everything away... and was thinking of that old  saying ..how does it go? "When life gives you Lemons.. make lemonade?"
Walked into the house and saw my pretty sunflowers smiling at me.. Thought of Sunshine and that led me to the freezer for some lemonade, searched near the bottom..."Score" I knew I had some.. Defrosted it and Here ya see I made 8 dozen Lemonade cookies..  I know  over kill... but  now I have plenty...So you see, I got more accomplished today than I thought I would and I feel pretty good right now.. and I have cookies for company..and my husband..  What can be better than that? Would I be pushing my luck to think he might tend the BBQ for dinner?

For those interested: I posted the recipe for the lemonade cookies over on "this hens a cookin".  (just click on the egg carton on the side bar to get  into the kitchen....)

Isn't it great when the day starts out Ho Hum and then ends on such a sweet note. Your cookies look fabulous. I'd love to see the recipe for the Lemonaide cookies. I love lemon anything.
