Cookie kind of day

We had been having some rain. So, I decided it was a cookie kind of day. I used a Chocolate Chip cookie recipe I found online to make a rainy day a little bit brighter.

It worked!

Tip: We didn’t have chocolate chips so I just chopped a bar of baking chocolate into small chunks.


Cookie dough ready for the oven! The girls helped me spoon out the dough. It was fun and took a long time for them to complete one cookie sheet which was the whole point of the project (killing time on a rainy day).

Where are the cookies?

Happy about cookies!

Notice the cookie crumbs on my daughter’s fingers? The cookie shown was her second one in less than five minutes. The cookies were a huge success!


Our new cookie jar that we bought over vacation was half way full. That didn’t last long! I told Vilay we had to buy a cookie jar because no childhood is complete without one in the home.

Our green corner

We have a small green corner in our living room. It is calming. I am surprised the kids leave the plants alone but so far so good. They even help me water them each day. I guess you could say it is training for when we do get a kitten.


Why hello Mr. and Mrs. Lego. Thank you for inviting us to your lovely home. Look! We brought cookies!

Cookie Jar Bear

My oldest daughter was in Girl Scouts during second grade. She sold quite a few boxes of cookies and won this cute little bear that I am saving for her. My favorite Girl Scout cookies are Thin Mints and Samoas® straight out of the freezer.

Blue Yonder knows how to enjoy a rainy day, too!

    I remember the cookie jar when you and trav were little. It was a Pillsbury dough boy. I never baked cookies. I got them at the store. lol. You are a better baker then me but I’m a better cook than you. lol Just kidding. You loved the cookies just the same and they never lasted long. I would call you both the cookie mosters. Love Mom

    The cookies look yummy!

    I’m curious about the cookie jar. We have some just like this (from Ikea), but I have so much trouble getting the lid to screw on/unscrew. It’s as if the threads are either not made properly or the plastic lid just doesn’t want to twist properly. Any hints as to how you get yours to work?

    And I really enjoyed the reminiscing about cookie jars between you and your mom. I remember the one in my grandmother’s house. How I loved that cookie jar! (Maybe more than the cookies!) It was shaped like a gingerbread house, and you lifted off the roof to get out a cookie. I wonder where it is. I want to have a picture of it.

    Might I add,
    My cookie jar is from Ikea. My lid works fine. I think you must have a cookie jar that is a lemon! ;) But, seriously, mine is easy to open and shut.

    I love those Gingerbread cookie jars and don’t blame you for wanting a photo.
