Good, Random...


The Good...
My Daughter Jamie, knowing how crazy I am for all things France, bought me this adorable Eiffel Tower cookie cutter some time ago. I had left over dough from making star cookies on the 4th. I've yet to use it and decided it was time I did.

I have to keep them hidden from Austin until Thursday when Jamie and my grandson, Erik, come down for a weekend visit...which is also good!

The Random
 As I was roaming Joanne's a few days ago, I happened upon some puzzles. I enjoy putting  them together  but haven't done one in years. After much deliberation, I brought this one home. Puzzles are very cathartic and I love how it can bring the family together.

The Fun...

On my most recent day-cation to The Huntington Library, I came across this hummer. On my quest for the perfect in-flight hummingbird shot, I quickly switched my camera to sports mode and fired off as many shots as I could. 
It's not the perfect one, but it is always fun trying.

Any good, random, and/or fun things going on with you?

**On a side note...E-blogger is being all dumb and has somehow shifted everything on ALL my pages even though I've refigured it...and to no avail. It irks me as it effects the ascetics. I'll be contacting e-blogger today to find out what the deal is. Please bare with me**


  1. Your cookies came out perfectly! I haven't done a puzzle in a bit, I should get one to do!

    1. It's the best sugar cookie recipe Tamar. It doesn't crack when you roll it out. I have the recipe somewhere on my blog. I can find it for you and send the link if you're interested.

  2. You make the most perfectly iced cookies! Mine are never like that.

    1. I have the recipe if you want it Sarah...the best dough to work with!

  3. Your cookies look fantastic! well done, I guess your little one will enjoy them.

    1. Thank you Karen. I can't wait to see him eat one.
