Okay, so my photo might not be as good as an AP or UPI shot but I was four hours away by car so this was as good as it got today. And good it was; I didn’t mind standing out on our roof on a 75 degree sunny blue skied day to watch the launch. Couldn’t linger though. We’re furiously getting ready for the Cookie Tour this weekend. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. I know, it’s early. But the tour is meant to inspire everyone to get into the spirit so that they’re ready to decorate – and bake – when they get home. The house smells pretty darn good too. Sugar cookies with a dark chocolate mint fudge topping. That’s what I’m talkin’ ’bout.
