Cookie Baking

A favorite part of the holiday season for me is cookie baking.

Over the years I have sampled a variety of drop, shaped , decorated, bar and no bake types.

Some have been so complicated that they may be a couple of days in the making.  Others so simple that one can stir them up and have them ready in a short few minutes.





For every taste bud there is a special cookie that will satisfy.

As I and my family have aged some of the fancy favorites have been exchanged for old fashioned goodness.







 These gingered molasses cookies are a good example.   They are simple to bake and with just plain ingredients most everyone enjoys them.











They are fragrantly spicy and perfectly chewy.   Just what I enjoy in a cookie.

If anyone wants the recipe -let me know.   Will be glad to share.









Hope everyone is having a great start to the Christmas season.   For all of those who love cookie baking - may your endeavors bring you hours of blissful joy!


Have a blessed week!

Sixty Years

Today marks sixty years of living.

Here are a few bits of wisdom I have learned over six decades.

Life may bring changes but some things remain the same.


There is nothing like a lovely walk in the woods to clear one's thoughts.




The joy of gathering generally starts at a young age.















A loyal dog makes the best friend!
















One never grows too old to enjoy dressing up and going to a party!













Last but not least spending time "looking up" yields a great way to start a day.

So there you are sweet friends...a few pearls of wisdom.   Bet you have some too.


Have a great day.

P.S.   Christmas is only four weeks away.   My how this year has flown by.

"For the Beauty of the Earth"

"For the beauty of the earth,


















For the glory of the skies,
















For the love which from our birth
















Over and around us lies:

















Christ our God, to Thee we raise

This our hymn of grateful praise."
(words by Folliott S Pierpoint)

Hope you all have a blessed week.

Park Your Cares

Amish Farm near our home
Hope you will park your cares and take a  short country ride with hubby and I.



This vista seems like a good place to start.  Very simple and serene.









A country barn 



Here is a lovely spot to make a stop.















A  pasture field


Don't you love that butternut color?  It really seems to pop!













Horses Grazing

Those two seem to be enjoying this gorgeous day.
















October Sky



How about the blue sky?
Don't those clouds look peaceful?











A fence row 


Nothing like fall colors to brighten a fence row.



Woodland 

Love this wooded glade.  We will be sure to return here.



So glad you joined us on our country ride.   Hope you left all your cares behind.

Have a blessed week.


Hugs Debbie
