I never got around to baking cookies last night once I lugged the big girls trunks down from the attic. Holy Moley they had a whole lot more than I any of us remembered. Some of the white items have turned pretty yellow. I have those soaking in Dreft tonight with hopes they will brighten up. The hand made clothes have held up great!! Go Me. Way back then I didn't have a zig zag stitch on my sewing machine sew I finished the seams with fray check. The seams are now hard as a rock!! I hadn't realized until last night while trying to put the different outfits together that Mattel had bought out Pleasant Company. It's been a long time since I have been in the baby doll world, times they a changing.
First thing this morning was to get those cookies baked before the house heated up. Two batches of M&M cookies were in the pantry by 7:00 AM waiting for hubby's arrival. Of coures the grands had all they wanted and a bag to go. We had a glorious day with temperatures in the 70's!!! The grands had a ball playing in the back yard after so many weeks being stuck in the house due to the heat and mosquito's. Honestly it feels like Fall, my very favorite time of the year. I know the hot weather will catch up with us again soon but for now it sure is nice.
Tonight I am going to do NOTHING. All this running around, playing, picking up, cooking, and snack making with the little girls did me in. Added to that getting the lawn mowed, vacuuming and a quick mop of the kitchen floor should be plenty enough. AJ the beagle and I will enjoy some cuddle time on the couch watching whatever we can find on TV.
