Just finished making these cookies, and decided to share. I actually finally found a homemade icing recipe that worked out. Once again, youtube saved the day. And I can assure everyone that these DO taste as good as they look.
So yesterday, a cat came into our yard, and basically said hi to my mom. My mom told the cat she feed it if the cat is still here after they came back from having dinner. The cat was still there, and came out on the front porch. My dad feed it, and it decided to stay the night. Today I discovered that it's a girl kitty, and if she decides to stay permanently. We're going to name her. At the moment, she is going by the name of Ms. Kitty. Isn't she adorable?

Today is my religious holiday. And yeah, Hanukkah is over, and Christmas is only a few days a way. However, today is my assigned day to cook, and gorge myself on baked goods. I'm going to give some to my goddess, put on some Christmas music. And shove myself into the holiday spirit. Yep, I haven't really been feeling it this year, and I was at lost how to get myself into the holiday spirit. So yeah, happy yule. If you celebrate this holiday, I wish you a great holiday. And drink and be merry! To those who don't celebrate this holiday, Happy Friday. You guys have a great weekend.
ETA: Also I decided to post my two meager Christmas cards/holiday cards that I made last month.

And I don't know if the shooter had a history of mental problems, but if he did. He shouldn't have a gun in the first place. As person with mental problems, I suffer from agoraphobia, anxiety, and depression; I think you shouldn't be able to get gun in this country. My father thinks that nothing can be changed, and I call bullshit. Things can be changed. And I think we need to start shouting, screaming at our people in congress to do something. My stepfather has gone to pick up my kids. And I'm waiting for baited breath for my kids to come home. You send you kids to school each morning thinking that they are going to be okay, that it's safe. And more, and more it's becoming less true. And it makes me want to scream, I want to wrap my kids in bubble wrap, and home school them for chrissake. But the hard truth is that the world is an unsafe place, and I just have to keep calm, and carry on .

Hello, and happy turkey day to all my peeps out there. I hope that you have a good day celebrating and re-connecting with friends. I just finished watching the Macy's parade, I only caught the very end, but thank god for re-runs. I also want to say happy thanksgiving for all of my peeps who was effected by Hurricane Sandy. I want to let you know that my heart goes out to all the victims of that Hurricane, and I just want you guys to have a little peace and happiness this year. My thoughts, are with you this holiday season. *hugs*.
Right now, my step-dad is cooking the turkey. It's the one day a year that he actually cooks, and it's his big thing. He takes so much care to get everything right. Although. he panicked, because he forgot to add flour to the bird bag/zip-lock cooking bag that he cooks it in.
My mom has been up cooking since at eleven last night, and she's dozing off in the den. Watching reruns of 'Leave it to beaver'. My kids just finished watching the parade, and is harassing their birth mother, my sister to death. LOL. Just another Thanksgiving, abet a small one at my house.
Also happy Thursday to all my international friends, who are lucky bastards, and don't have to go through the Chaos until Christmas.
P.S. Typically, Mabon is my religious time for thanksgiving. However, since my family is almost exclusively Christian, I tend to have to have to celebrate two separate, but similar holidays.
Oh, and stay tuned for the Christmas/Holiday cards, which I will start making this week.

So lately I been mentioning that I have been getting into cooking. I got a great tutorial for my mom's recipe for making her own version of spaghetti, which she made last night. It's a quick and easy recipe. And it's a staple for when you don't have a lot of time or money on your hands. I wish that all my peeps could be in my mom's kitchen eating her spaghetti. You guys, are sure missing out. Today, is my last time baking for until after Thanksgiving. Traditionally, thanksgiving is my mom's time to shine in the kitchen. However, the holidays with Yule / Christmas coming up I will bringing my own religious traditions and some great family classics into the kitchen. I'm making Yule Log Cake, and Gingerbread cookies. I made the cookies last year (with the help of Betty Crocker packet). I think might make them from scratch this year.
