We still have unusually warm temperatures. The cats are enjoying the sun outside again. We’re enjoying the lower heating bills, but in the bigger picture, worrying and wondering what it means. I wonder if winter will ever come to stay.
The ginger snaps turned out great, by the way. The recipe made closer to 100 cookies (more than enough to share), so I’ve been munching on them myself. I had a quite a production line going while I baked them… alternating two cookie sheets, rolling and mashing out the next batch while the other one cooked. Like all good cooking, labor intensive, but very satisfying. Tasty.
8°C (46.4°F) My DSL provider has subjected me to a day and a half of down time with helpful suggestions like “try again in 4 hours.” My case has been “escalated,” which means I can expect a response within 3 to 5 business days (sigh). In the meantime I’m relegated to a dial-up connection as a backup.
