My Favorite Farm

"That house was a perfect house, whether you like food or sleep or story telling or singing, or just sitting and thinking, or a pleasant mixture of them all. Merely to be there was a cure for weariness, fear and sadness." –J.R.R. Tolkien

Penquins Hockey Fans

I can't figure out how to save this video in an easy format to view, but if you're interested, you can copy and paste the link below to view some Pittsburgh Hockey fans in Raleigh sweeping the Canes! Ha, Chris is my nephew, so better yet!

Penn State Pennharmonics

I learned to love Penn State when our daughter Lori attended school there from 2002-2006, so I may be partial, but this is so good.

Goodbye Atlanta, Hello Dallas

Never got around to posting this photo taken in January 2009 when we drove to Dallas to help Lori move in to her new apartment. Wow, it's been 4 months already. Sigh, we miss her!

Gerbera Daisy Cookies and Shortbread for Spring

Our bright new colors of spring in fucshia, lavendar and orange are getting me in the mood for warmer weather! Still in the 40's here in Pittsburgh but the temperature is on the rise, we may make it into the 60's this week. I'm thinking that we may begin to offer decorated cut-out sugar cookies at Country Cupboard Cookies, we're going to talk about it this week. Hmmmm, I'm picturing baby shower cookies, wedding monograms, birthday cakes with personalized messages, oh, and daisys!

Coming soon: Cookie Gifts for Spring!

I do love winter, the cold is actually invigorating, I always loved trips out west to ski, I love walks in the winter snow, I even used to ice skate a lot. Winter is beautiful when there is snow, but this "wintery mix" we are having lately in Western Pennsylvania, one day ice, one day snow, one day rain. Well, I'm ready for Spring! We baked up some sugar cookies today and decided, yes it was time to buy some new spring gift boxes and spring ribbons.
