Well, yesterday it rained all day and I woke up around 5am to some roaring wind. Once I was awake, I got up, opened my blinds a little and laid back down to watch the swaying treetops while checking Twitter. I mean, what else do you do at 5am? Once I woke up again around 8am I went out to survey the street (from my balcony with my coffee). First, it felt amazing outside! Nice strong breeze and cool weather. Second, it seems like all we got in my neighborhood was a bunch of leaves, rain, and some small limbs down. Now the sun is out and it still feels fantastic out there! However, when we went out to explore…we found a lot of places are closed or on limited generator power. So I’m home and it’s Sunday:
I baked cookies. Kitchen Cabinet Cookies. Ok, so they’re just a slight variation on the Nestle chocolate chip cookies, but kitchen cabinet cookies sound better. I named them as such because I just opened up my baking cabinet and grabbed the open bags of morsels I had. Everything went in and then I added sprinkles for good measure.
