Just as I thought! We’re all a bit down in the dumps now that Baby Bro has left. He said he’d be back on the Island again before his university courses resume. I really do miss that kid! Now that Hubby and I are expecting a baby in the winter, the more I miss my friends and family in the city. I miss Baby Bro the most.
Mom and I packed a box of groceries for Baby Bro to take back with him, as well as a cooler with cold drinks for his 10 hour drive back to K-town. Just like any Big Sis would do, I woke up at 6AM to bake him two and a half dozen cookies…just because he likes them. Some were to snack on for the ride home and some (I hoped!) were to share with his girlfriend. I love that girl!Want my chocolate chip cookie recipe? You can find it here. I made a dozen and a half chocolate chip cookies and a dozen chocolate chip-cranberry cookies.
Hubby was sad that he didn’t get to see Baby Bro off, because he has been doing a lot of thislately! He’s been baling, and baling, and doing more baling. No rest for the weary, I guess!I have just discovered something that I can eat that doesn’t make me nauseous! The nausea is starting to let up a bit. Hopefully now that we’re nearing the end of the first trimester, I won’t be so sick anymore!
Anyway, this magical food that doesn’t make me sick? Snowpeas! Fresh from the garden and straight to the table! Well, after being washed first! I don’t use any chemicals on my produce, but I do have a dog that likes to tinkle on my asparagus. It’s hard to say whether he leaves the rest of the veggies alone, so we just won’t chance that!
