no, that's not a t-shirt

no, that's not a t-shirt.

Grampa, sporting a serious farmer's tan. In the days before sun screen and melanoma were common words in our summer vocabulary.

I dedicated today to Christmas cookie production! I only baked the apple cookies, but have five more types in the freezer. I thought the apple ones might freeze better baked. I'll have to store them in the (freezing) porch as I finish them. Gramma always gives out containers of cookies for Christmas too. I tried not baking any of her "regulars" except I am making her caramel cookies. They are one of my favorites and are always one of the first kinds to disappear.

I'd like to attempt some candy too but I have dog walking duties again this week. My intentions may be overreaching. The road to Christmas...is paved with broken candy canes.
