its that time of year again - cookies and sweets!

The ribbons of the tree are currently waiting for a sewing needle and/or stapler because this is bullshit. So. Cookies.

I went to my handy Pepperplate to find these. All are tested at least once and did not fail. At least once.

Peanut Butter Blossom CookiesCollapse )

Note: Chocolate shortbread cookies I made last night came out questionable in texture and delicious in flavor. Still trying to work out what went wrong; will post recipe when I figure it out. I ended up having to hand-knead the damn things which I think I should have done from the first and may be why they came out weird. The question persists; it shall be answered.

I'm still going through my recipes for the season of joy and flavor and thinking seriously of attacking wassail this year.

ETA: Forgot! Finished Whose Body?, now 1/2 through Clouds of Witness. Am definitely enjoying both the story and the language.

joyce has freed us from the superstition of syntax*

That subject line is now the title of my future biography. I was moved, inspired, alerted, delighted, baffled, maybe communized a little, idk.

I'm just saying I'm free now. Free. The superstitions of syntax hold no sway over me.

goals (some of them. not all)
children of dune - leto 1
My goal is for this month:

1.) I post at least once a day
2.) Two times must involve fic
3.) I'm allowed two (2) outs for illness, work, oversleeping, or rabbits
4.) I will post the unexpunged history of how I now have six (6) rabbits. There may be photos. One may wear a Santa coat but not unless I trim their claws.
5.) May add more for next month?

So far so good: eight days with at least one post a day.
