In case you were confused…

wpid-img_20141213_1353002.jpg.jpegI apparently should not blog when I’m up past my bedtime. 😀

I love Natalie’s blog, Threads and Bobbins, and I really enjoy doing the Sunday Sevens linkup. Helps me remember I have a blog some weeks. <grin> But apparently I discovered how to repost without knowing I was doing it. Not that I mind reposting Natalie’s blog–I just hadn’t intended it last night. I was reading after posting mine, and getting dozy, and voila! I discovered how to repost! By apparently clicking somewhere on the screen while nodding off.

Lesson learned–no blogging when you should be in bed. 😀

Perhaps some sugar would improve my alertness. So in response to a request for my espresso cookies, I went digging around to find the original source.  Ta-Dah!! to the rescue!  So here’s the link:

Chocolate-Dipped Espresso Cookies

And a bonus–the chocolate spicy stars which are rather different and very tasty:

Spicy Chocolate Shortbread



Sunday Sevens #1


Natalie at Threads and Bobbins had a cool idea for a weekly linkup. So here’s my contribution–a week of photos for the Sunday Sevens linkup.

Sunday’s are almost always guinea pig pen cleaning day.

It’s gotten cool enough to wear my favorite sweatshirt in the evenings. I’m ready, so bring on the cold weather!!!

Books—reading is forever.

One scrummy Peppermint Mocha Latte!! Bible study started this week, and I was feeling the need for a pick-me-up between work and our study.

Actually from Wednesday, but has applied to the entire month. My local grocery store has decided to redo their entire layout. Leaving aisles of empty shelves and oddities like putting the peanut butter with the coffee. (???)

Purple glitter nail polish. Not for me.
