Today was a baking day ...
Cookies to keep
Cookies to give ...
|Cookies are made of butter and love|
Wrapped up in Valentine ribbon ...
little bundles of love
And while I waited for the timer to go off, letting me know the next batch was ready to come out of the oven, I enjoyed a cup of tea, read, and enjoyed an Oatmeal Raisin Cookie too :-)
