I am so enjoying this Advent season. As I focus on anticipation and preparation, I find joy in the process. Last night I baked. Cranberry Orange Shortbread and Ginger Sparklers. There are two definite camps in our family regarding Ginger cookies. Some, like me, like them snappy and crisp and they are called Ginger Snaps. Others, like everyone else (except maybe our youngest, I'm not sure which camp she's in), like them soft. Since I'm the cookie baker, I alternate between soft and snappy.
Larch cones, holly and fir cones in a tea cup - a little bit of seasonal decor in the china hutch. I'm not really a fan of red, but I'm liking it this year, with lots of white and a very little bit of fresh greenery.
Most of my sewing can't be shown in public yet. But yesterday I began a project for myself. It won't take too long to finish. But last night, I ran out of both butter and white thread. Two basics. So I quit baking and quit sewing and read.
Tell me, do you prefer Ginger cookies snappy or soft? What are you preparing?
