24 to 0

Very crispy all day.
 Little Wonder stuck it out in the barn with me....Phoebe went in the house.
At 11, Jenny and Scott came up to make Christmas Cookies.
Minor detail, we could not find the cookie cutters.
 We started out by making Vordags (Swedish shortbread).
 And ended up using 2 star cookie cutters and 2 different sized glass to come up with
those that were going to be decorated.

 This was a free form turned into a fish.

 Gary took a short nap after decorating one cookie.
 Scott was a great sport, and helped us.
 When all was said and done, it looked like they were made by pre schoolers
but they tasted good.  Our supplies were very limited this year so we had
to fake it.
 The sun was out part of the day, so most of the snow melted.
I think the high temperature was 33.

 At 3:30 Gary and I went down
 to the Student Union at the college to watch the SUNY Brockport Football Team
play Mary Hardin-Baylor in the NCAA Division III Football Semi-Finals.
They were in Belton, Texas.
 There was a huge screen in the ballroom and the place was packed.
The Student Government provided burgers, hot dogs, chips, nachos and cheese,
pizza, cold drinks and coffee...everyone chowed.
I had to leave before half time to go home and feed the horses.
 When I got back, they were in the 3rd quarter and Brockport was getting pounded.
They lost 24 to 0.  
The good news....they had a 13 and 0 season and had the opportunity to play today.
 Check out the hibiscus blossom tonight.
By tomorrow it will feel like paper and then it will disappear.

Night all.


  1. And there I was thinking the 24 to 0 was the temperature!!! Love that hibiscus.

  2. Hibiscus is beautiful. Have never seen one quite like it. Made your cabbage soup last night for dinner! It was scrumptious! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Hi Lori, thank you for your kind words on my blog today. I love the decorated cookies. And the hibiscus bloom. Jo
