Our women's ministry at church had a Cookie Walk fundraiser this morning. We sold tickets for a container that the buyer could fill with yummy cookies. The money raised went to support children in Ghana and Ghana Initiative, a mobile medical mission. I baked two kinds of cookies for this event. One kind was a sandwich cookie with cream cheese filling. Five of us met at church on Tuesday evening to fill the cookies and set up the tables. I wish I had taken a picture of us that evening!
Grandson Carson and his dad fill a container.
Last Saturday our Keurig quit working. We have a coffee pot too, but when you only want one cup, a Keurig is so handy. I was trying to be fine without my extra coffee during the day....a cup of regular flavored coffee in the afternoon (a needed boost!) and sometimes a cup of decaf in the evening. Fine I was not!!
On Monday I decided to stop at McDonalds for a cup of coffee after taking Ellen to work. Noah was sleeping in the car and the drive thru was so convenient. Who would I see in the car in the other lane.....my daughter Marcy and her hubby Scott!! They were coming home after a long appointment and stopped at McD's for some food. We got a good laugh out of that!
On Wednesday I used my free Starbucks for this....
Was saving that free one for when I really needed it. I really needed it that day! Venti....peppermint mocha. I enjoyed every drop of it!!
Yesterday this sweet thing was on a very good sale, plus I used my Red Card (Yay Target!) ....I purchased online, went to the store, picked it up, came home, unpacked, and....
This is not a Keurig. It's an I Coffee, made by Remington. We heard others liking this single cup coffee maker and are giving it a try.
Here's another picture of the lounge at Brereton Manor where Ellen works.
It's so pretty! (The fireplace wasn't going that night...only noticed it now!!)
It's looking more like Christmas here at our house too.
Tomorrow afternoon is a baby shower for my daughter, Marcy. I baked some amazing GF spice cupcakes with cream cheese frosting (I'm having a hard time leaving them be. They are so good!!) and chocolate cupcakes with a cream cheese and chocolate chip filling. I've done more baking this week than I have done in years!!
That's it for today....I must finish cleaning now that these are gone.....
God Bless your weekend. I'm looking forward to worshiping with our church family tomorrow morning!
