My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

Domestic Attempts

Cricket helped with babysitting this cute little guy while
his mom, my colleague & friend Lisa, and I baked and decorated our Valentine's sugar cookies. Such fun. I love making sugar cookies and have a recipe thanks to my friend, Erin, that is a success each time. Apparently, what I need as my efforts to make Glutein Free Brownies for Mel for her birthday tomorrow failed.
What a relief that she called and said she won't be coming in to work for her birthday ... I've got time to try again.
Here's Erin's Sugar Cookie Recipe:
3 c. flour; 1 cup butter; 3/4 cup sugar; 1 egg; 2 Tbs. milk; 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla. Bake at 350 degrees for 5-8 minutes. As mentioned, one of my favorites for Halloween, Christmas and Valentine's Day and other special days like when Natalie was an office and we made cookies shaped like V to show our school spirit.

I love to eat sugar cookies, but I don't like to make them myself. Looks like you have fun today.

I can tell you have a fun apron collection for your domestic attempts! Sorry about the brownies, but you sure look cute with that baby!! When's Natalie going to make you into the "g" word?
