{Cookie Recipe and I have FLOORS!}

I shared with you in my last post that I would be sharing a cookie recipe that I tried for the first time. NOT a healthy cookie either....but oh so good! Remember...everything in moderation! 


But first I just have to share this picture with you of my youngest grandgirl! I get tickled  every time I look at this picture. 

 I think she could be little Cindy Lou Who....LOL! 

She is just too sweet! We call her our JOY baby because she brings so much joy to our family.





 And just so you know there is a little more progress in remodeling my little office/sewing/craft room. Not real sure what I call that room because it gets used for a lot of different things. My man says to our daughter's, "Your mama's room". And my grands say, "Nana's Room" so I've got to come up with a special name now. I use to call my little room "My prissy room". So once this little room is totally remodeled maybe you all can help me come up with a name. Y'all know I NAME everything!

Flooring has been bought and I love the color...
 Grey Aged Oak....


It's actually a little darker than this sample as you will see in the pictures but I like it a lot. 
I am looking at material now for different colors that I may want to accent the room in. BOY there's too many choices out there! 

Let the work begin....






My man and fatherinlove is steady measuring and cutting. So good to have handymen in the family.






Next will be the baseboards. It's beginning to take on the makeover. YAY!

And while they worked on my floors I actually enjoyed this cup of tea from my friend Sheila.


I decided to try another flavor of tea that my friend Kitty sent to me the next day too.

 Both teas....oh so good. Nothing like a cuppa tea to sooth the soul.

And without further delay here is the cookie recipe and it really does taste yummy. This batch made a lot of cookies and I knew I had to get them out of my house the next day so we wouldn't be tempted to EAT them all in ONE setting. But...they sure do make nice little gifts. Make a batch and give some as gifts...Giving adds an extra dose of sunshine to ones soul...for the giver and the receiver. 




"Give and it shall be given to you". Luke 6:38

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  3. SO CUTE!!! Great picture, the two of you.

    I had a room that I couldn't figure out what it was, so I named it! I called it Paris. So when ever my husband wanted to know where I was, I said I'm in Paris!

  7. Cindy, that little one is adorable! Love the hair!!! Cookies sounds great but I must refrain from this one. Trying to loose a little weight and I am afraid they would be too tempting for me. Did you get your flooring at Home Depot? I saw some almost like that there that I thought I would like to have in my dining room actually. Glad to see your room coming along.

  10. Exciting to see the floor progress. Can't wait to hear your room's name and see how you decorate and furnish it. I'm enjoying the step by step anticipation.
    Cookies sound so good. I'm pinning for later because I have gained weight but a cookie or two with tea sounds wonderful!
    Your baby girl is growing so fast. So sweet to have her nearby.
    Enjoy your week, Cindy!

  16. That cute picture of your "Joy" made me giggle, too. Don't you love it when they're little and can dress and doll them up like that?! I love your new flooring! It looks so warm and clean. I'm really loving our hard wood and vinyl tile floors. They are really hardworking and so easy to clean. I can't wait to see what fabrics you choose. Thanks for another yummy recipe. J loved the alfredo sauce and spaghetti squash! Have a wonderful week, sweet friend. Enjoy another cuppa and relax.

    Thank you for the cookie recipe. It sounds really good. I'm currently on the journey of losing weight...and changing my eating habits, but I know some people who would enjoy a gift of cookies. :)

    And yes...there is nothing like a good cup of tea to soothe the soul.

    Have a wonderful week, my friend.
