Oh, I almost forgot. I made the dough for my first batch of ginger snaps (ever) today. It’s chilling in the refrigerator overnight now. They better turn out well. The recipe says it makes 6 dozen.

-2°C (28.4°F) My favorite phase of the moon this morning: the big, toothy grin. It’s hard not to smile back when you see it. Although it stayed below freezing yesterday, the bright sun turned the dusting of snow into more of a salt-and-pepper look. And today might be warm enough to clear it altogether.
