Brrrrr. Woke up to 23.7 degrees. Anything that's not perennial is definitely dead now. The boys bundled themselves up complete with stocking hats and their heavy ski gloves before facing the elements at the bus stop.
Thing 2 is all excited. We're spending a good part of tomorrow baking. Chocolate chip cookies and one or two kinds of bread are on the list of things he wants to make. We're on our last loaf of white sandwich bread, and we could use some light wheat or whole wheat bread as well. I'd like to try out these Holiday Rolls too, as I think they would go very well with the turkey for Thanksgiving. I want to try them first rather than make them for the first time on T-day.
Forgive me for such a lame post. All I can say is I was attacked by a dementor today. Mr. E brought me a Pumpkin Pie Blizzard, which, although it wasn't chocolate, helped a little. Frankly, it was damn good. But all I can think of doing is crawling in bed with Sense and Sensibility, which I'm reading for only the fourth time.
Better and brighter tomorrow.
