Today began a little too early. I woke up just before 5:00 AM and couldn't go back to sleep. So I decided I might as well get up and make use of the time. Say hello to my wonderful soaker tub. That thing has been such a blessing and has been a pain reliever like no other.
This morning I turned on some worship tunes, kept the lights dim and sat in the warmth and worshipped. It was a marvelous way to begin a day that wasn't without its difficulties. Everyone is in bed now and I just finished making some fudge cookies which I will indulge in once they're a wee bit cooler.
Oh and we have a new family member, Scotty. This house has been guarded by Scotty for many years and he just came back home yesterday (he belonged to our friends). The kids are loving him like crazy. He's the sweetest dog and easy to love. I think I'll be able to learn some lessons from him.
Fudge Cookies (no-baking required)
Boil together for 5 minutes over medium heat:
1/2 cup butter
2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup milk
3 cups oatmeal
1 cup coconut (or just add a little more oatmeal)
1/2 cup cocoa
Drop by spoonfuls on waxed paper. Work fast, they harden quickly!!!
