Its Friday the 13th and everything is just fine here at the Ranch! Its day number 10 and so far I have completed one major piece, Hot Yellowstone #12, one painting for the LEAP366 project, (yes, I know its 2017 but I'm still catching up), one painting exploring Devil's rope and 3 batches of cookies!
OK, about the baking. We have a chef here, ( aren't we lucky!) named Carrie. She puts on delicious, healthy meals but when it comes to desserts, its a desert! Even though a few of us are supposed to be using this time to diet, I still like to do a bit of baking for a change of pace. The other residents are so appreciative too. So far its been Thumbprint cookies, brownies, (I lowered my standards and used a mix I found in the cupboard ) and just last night, oatmeal raisin. My recipe box is coming up with my husband Dave today. That means next week, I'll be using the Ranch's industrial mixer to whip up chocolate chip and Mexican chocolate cookies!
PS, I promise I'm getting a lot of work done too!
