On Wednesdays I take Atticus to daycare at his regularly scheduled time (7:30) even though I don't go to work until noon (I work a split shift). I typically use the four-plus hours to run errands, but this past Wednesday I had a little baking fest. Actually, I just made 90 sugar cookies. I had other cookies in the freezer because I've been doing my holiday baking a bit at a time.
It was a lovely day: coffee, Bing crooning Christmas tunes, a steady rain, and rolling out cookie dough.
The trays and treat-bags were a hit at work, so I guess everyone wins!
