08:49 am Yesterday was the Cookie Exchange, one of our big three events at home annually. Another was last week's Thanksgiving. And so to the build-up for Carnivores Feast.
Cooking and cleaning were the order of the day, yesterday, and we did a pretty good job of it. A few folks arrived early, a few late. Several who had planned to attend got sick and couldn't, and we were sad that they'd missed the fun. Now, all the cookies are boxed up, ready to load into my car to take them to the various nursing stations that will be gifted.
