making the switch

really not so painful.
i switched today to blogger beta. a few little things changed, perhaps for the better. love the new label feature. not that this matters all that much, as i haven't been blogging much lately. but there you have it anyway.

i'm having a fairly lazy sunday. writing holiday cards. catching up on blogs that i've been too busy to read for the last few weeks. there are some really great blogs out there. why anybody reads this one, i can't imagine.

i've pulled out last year's MS Holiday Cookies magazine (they didn't publish one this year that i can find) and have been in a baking frenzy. the new favorite recipe is snickerdoodles. for those who care, if you add a teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon allspice to the batter (in addition to rolling the dough in cinnamon sugar before baking), they are extra good. today we will be trying a new recipe for molasses ginger cookies.

i just love this time of year. makes me want to drink hot chocolate with extra marshmallows.
