Winter Solstice


A short but busy day that will take a long night to actually finish my to-do list.

I woke up deciding to paint, in my pyjamas no less!  I got a coat of yellow on the remodeled clock base and the Rooster will fine tune the hanging bar for the doll clothes and put the feet back on it tonight, I hope.


I tackled that cupboard across from the remodeled clock.  I can't believe I actually did it near that quilt top.  :O  But now I'm thinking I need to do the inside where a shelf will rest in a Robin Egg Blue, which I conveniently have a sample of! But that is for after I get dressed!  lol


I had Jenn for an extra day this week and she brought the makings for shortbread.  I was determined to get my own done before I went back to painting.  I will eat shortbread any time of the year but this 'short' solstice day seems particularly appropriate!  I made a white shortbread that is gluten free and absolutely delicious!  I also like brown sugar shortbread but that recipe needs more 'tweaking' and I am not the kind of creative cook that tweaks so I'll be looking for another recipe.  I had to do the photo in the front room as the kitchen is a disaster with my multi tasking.  

                                                                             ~

The day is shortening so I need to make some long strides to reclaim the kitchen for the Rooster's supper,  cause the sooner he eats the sooner he can shorten his to-do list!  LOL    oops!  The timer is telling me the last pan is ready to come out and I have no where to put it!!!  I'll be down shortly.

sheesh, I think I've nibbled too many short bread cookies!  ROFLOL

Ahhh at last you have baked your shortbread cookies. Mr. C LOVES shortbread so I hope you will eat one for him and one for me. Love the little cabinet that will have the robin's egg blue shelf in it. Winter Solstice and we are having a huge wind, rain and show storm. And Mr. C is determined we must drive across town tonight...YUCK!!! Happy finishing your list my dear...

cookies and painting on the solstice sound good to me.
