Ah, what a wonderful sound. Rain! You don't appreciate it till you don't have it. We've had a terribly dry Fall and life on a farm is hard without rain. My ducks will be on Cloud 9 by tomorrow if this steady rain keeps up...but now for the bad news. This wonderful moisture is suppose to be snow by the end of the weekend. I'm already tired of the cold weather and ready for Spring.
Guess what I did today? Made some Christmas cookies. I found some neat glitter gel icing for decorating the other day and couldn't resist. My sugar cookies turned out ok, they kinda got big in the oven, it's like the snowman went from small to large. But they were still yummy. I wasn't sure if I should use the icing before or after baking, so I used it before and love how it turned out. It sorta melted into the cookies and made them so pretty.
In honor of my cooking, I've got another Christmas card tonite. This one is so much prettier in person because the snowman is so glittery. But it was a fun card to make and someone will probably be receiving it in about a month!
Well I submitted my first card to a magazine, scary huh? Guess I'll never know unless I try! Enjoy.
