Thanks for all the ideas for house plants. When I get some you can be sure they will show up on the blog!! :-)
Did a few house chores, and then baked some cookies. They are called Grandma's Shortbread Cookies. I found the recipe on Meals Matters and added it to my recipes. The recipe is HERE. They are very simple to make. You could roll them in balls and then press down with a fork or roll them out and use cookie cutters. I went with the little balls and made them much too thick. Added a little sprinkle of colored sugar. I had to bake them a lot longer than was called for. I don't even remember how many times I set the timer for two more minutes. Next time I will roll the dough out and use cookie cutters. I had to eat one to test and they are pretty good. A nice not sweet cookie to go with tea.
I did finish the Cleopatra book yesterday. It was pretty good. Lots of untruths and myths around about Cleopatra and this book tried to give a true picture of her. A surprise for me was to learn that it was NOT an asp that killed her, but probably poison that she had made.
I read a little this afternoon and also knitted. I really like the pattern of baby blanket I'm knitting now. The pattern came from a book I'm reading. You can see it HERE on my other blog. I've knitted more since that picture was taken and will have another picture on my progress up there in the next day or two.
Ken as invited me to go with him and his coworkers to a happy hour at the Cancun Cantina and will picking me up about 4:30 or so. I've never been there, in fact I've never even heard of it before. You get two free drinks and free food. Can't beat that.
I'm just waiting around now for Ken to get here. I'll go back to reading until then.
Hope Friday was a happy day for you.
A smile from me to you.
