My life is exciting. I spent nearly the entire time yesterday making chocolate-chip and Heavenly cookies. Then I packaged, paid for them online and arranged a pickup with the post office. “How could I top that?” I hear you say.
Well let me tell you. I couldn’t get to sleep until 3:30 am. At 5 am, a scant 90 minutes later I was awakened with the news that someone was scratching around the front door. I opened the door to see two raccoons* holding a package each. I retrieved the packages. Nature’s little blighters had chewed through the box and had gotten to the cookies inside. Fortunately, I had extra cookies. But I had to work fast as I had two appointments coming up soon. I repackaged and relabeled the boxes. I also secured the boxes of cookies with more tape.
Enough of that! Off to an eye doctor. Then onward and upward to see a dentist. Then home. I’d tell you more but I suspect you’re already seething with envy.
