AAAAAAAaaaaaarrrrrggghhhhhh!  Today was a bit of a wash.  I can’t believe it, but my favorite baking supply store (Sugar & Spice) was closed today!  On a Sunday?!  It would make more sense that it be closed on a Monday… Thankfully, a new small business opened up about 4 months ago — Busy Bakers — and I was able to get my luster dust.  We ran errands and then came home around 2, ate and then….promptly fell asleep.  As you know, cookie time is a brutal time in our household, and both The Husband & I are toast.  But seriously, I didn’t mean to sleep that long.

I feel like I got nothing done, however, I did ice & flood ALL the sugar cookies.  The peacocks will be a big of a time consuming process for embellishments, but this will be the first year I’ve completed sugar cookies by day 4.  I don’t think I can say that’s happened before, and they will be DRY when we bag them up.

Still, I’m a bit deflated at having very little to show.  I didn’t mix up anything new, and if The Husband hadn’t stepped in, the Red Velvet Crinkles would not be baked.  He’s too good to me sometimes.

Tomorrow will need to be a bigger day.
