A Weekend View

Well it snowed as promised. With being sick and the cold weather, we spent a lot of time indoors and to lift the mood I made my delicious oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Of all the cookies in the world, I make these the most. I think they might be my favorite. I’ll post the recipe later though I am still trying to master the most perfect chewy one.

Quote of the Day:
I’m cooking away in the kitchen when AJ walks into the doorway and stops.

AJ: “Hey babe are you brave?”
Me: “What?”
AJ: “Are you brave?”

I stop, look up and walk over in curiosity.

Me: “No I’m not brave and I don’t trust you because last time I said I trusted you, you poured water on me.”
AJ: “No I just want to know if you’re brave.”

That’s when I notice the battery in his hand.

Me: “I’m not going to lick that battery.”
AJ: “Babe, pleeeeease!”

This seriously happened and the entire time I was thinking “I can’t believe this is happening.”

Me: “I’m not stupid, I’m not going to lick that battery.”
AJ: “Come on it doesn’t really hurt.”
Me: “No way, I’m not stupid.”
AJ: “Just once. If you do it, then I will.”
Me: “Ha! Yeah okay, you lick it first then I will but I’m not really going to lick it.”

Then he does!
I started laughing so hard because then he hands it to me and says,

AJ: “Okay, now you lick it.”
Me: “Hahaha, I’m not going to lick it!”
AJ: “Baaaaaaabe!”

It seriously drove him crazy that I wouldn’t lick it. Why would I lick it? Really?

    The pictures are the cutest! I love newly fallen snow…before it gets all dirty and sick! I lived in the snow for 16 years prior to living in the desert! I would not have licked it either!

    I actually heard once that if you lick the ends of a battery (like a double A or something), then it gives it a little more power. I did this once when my camera batteries died, and it totally worked. Crazy, I know. I don’t know who came up with it, or why I decided it was a good idea!
