Girl's Day - Take 2

Stacia slept in and I put in a couple of hours of PWOC time. 

We checked the mail and I stepped BAREFOOT on a SNAKE! 

After breakfast we started on a few projects for the day. Tomorrow is a fellowship/Town Hall and so we needed to get ready for the Potluck. Stacia really thought Ms. Cynthia would want us to make desserts. 

We made Blondies and Toll House Bars

At this point we had to run to Walmart. We took back a few things we bought and decided we didn't want. We bought things to mail to the girls and kids at the orphanage. We bought more eggs so we could bake some more. 

While at Walmart we ran into a teenager (rather than youth) with a SNAKE around his neck. It really was freaky. We were told that animals are allowed at Walmart...and then we began to note all the dogs in carts around the store. Come to think of it I DID see a gal with two tiny dogs in her bra the other day at Walmart.  America - what a country! 

We made Zebra Cookies - toll house with both white and dark chocolate

 While the cookies baked; Stacia watched....

And I tried to fit all the goodies into a flat rate box. I gave up.  In the garage I found a bigger box AND something furry scurried across the floor. Good grief....Stacia said this is the day of "bad animals." 

Our haul of the day - and an apple pie.  Stacia's remark, "There'll be more than doughnuts THIS time." Um....o.k. evidently store bought desserts don't work for the girl. ::snort:: I'm not sure others will like our goodies baked with all healthy ingredients...but we like them and are happy to bring them home again.  I need to get up early enough to get the salads ready and be at chapel at 0900. I may skip salads. 

Stacia asked is she could stream a movie. I gave in. This allowed me time to continue to work on our upcoming Fall Retreat...another 3 hours of accomplishment. 

I called Nolan and he said they'd be home at 9:15 p.m. That gives them two minutes. I sort of doubt it.

WHEW~ a busy day for sure. Wow, Stacia baking such good looking cookies. I fully understand your need to send things to the kids. :):):):) We'd still be sending stuff to the G'kids if there was enough money to do so. :):):)
