THE UTTER NEED TO DO SOMETHING

Have you ever woken up with the feel and drive to do something that you have not done happily in a while? This morning for the first time in over a year I woke up with the feeling of want and need to bake. Not because I had to because I could get snacks at the store down the road but because I had the feeling to create and bake. This to me is a huge step in the right direction for me and I am so happy that I woke up feeling this way. Because I feel happy and less anxious than I have been. However, it scares me a bit as well because I do not want to lose this amazing feeling today. My sister-in-law Pam used to joke with me that I should open a food truck and serve nothing but cookies and coffee... To be honest I often contemplated if I could do it. Could I make a passion of mine into a viable business? But for now, I will just be the crazy cookie lady at home!

*note because I am always asked* the top of the cookies are not made with a special tool or anything I use a mini ice cream scoop to measure my cookie dough so that all my cookies come out the same size. When you do as much baking as I do it comes in handy. I have gotten my last 3 off amazon and here is the affiliate link to it HERE. I like it because it's durable and cheap but my kids like to break them in hard as rock icecream or accidentally throw them out! Joys of having teens.

So "Happy" is the word of the day today and happy I will be!  I hope you all have an amazing Sunday with family and friends or just curling up with a good book.

Blessings and Love to you all!

PS. I couldn't say I baked and not add the recipe. This recipe is for a double batch of chocolate sugar cookies.


Chocolate Sugar Cookies

5 1/2 Cups Flour
2 Teaspoons Baking Soda
1/2  teaspoon salt
2  Cups Butter
3 Cups Sugar
2 Eggs
3 Teaspoons Vanilla
(Buy it in bulk like I do makes it easier when needing it later also its cheaper this way.)
1/4 cup sugar to roll cookies

Mix all Ingredients together and set aside in fridge 10 min. I always use cooking spray on my pans. Scoop out cookies to the desired size! Cook at 350 degrees for 11-12 minutes.  

Ok, everyone, all ovens are different I use a Kenmore gas stove/ovens and my cookies stay in 11 minutes. Electric ovens and convection ovens will take a longer or shorter time. Learn about your oven so you know how well it bakes.

New Year New Me....HAHA...Just Kidding

 Well, all its been a long while since I have posted. I can make excuses, but seriously, what would be the point. As most know I try to be 100% transparent and honest in my posts. I have been struggling... A LOT. I suffer from anxiety and depression. I have been hiding away from the world basically crocheting and working. I have missed my blog and have just started the great revamp. My life has changed so much in the last three years. I decided that I am coming back on my terms to start posting like I want to instead of a need to fill the blog. As my life has changed so much I will be deleting and removing a lot of the old posts that I feel were filler and starting fresh. I will still be sharing my writing and my very rough versions of the books and stories I am working on as well as adding a new section of my paranormal adventures.  So I guess the biggest thing I can say is please excuse the dust as we are remodeling. Much love and blessings, Angie

The Toast To The Exhausted Mom At The Holidays

I think  I  have cracked a few yawns just bringing up the blog page to write this. But seriously while Santa is hoarding all the Christmas Elves at the north pole we the regular run of the mill mom's are in a holiday rush.  I will admit things are a bit less crazy for me this year as I am not doing the retail store thing.  If you're a Mama who is working at a retail store I salute you and for whoever wants to be mean to that Mama who has her soul ensnared by the life sucking demon of the retail work I have one thing to say to you! "May you walk down a hall of Lego's with bare feet in the dark!" That's right, I said it! I did eleven years in a retail environment and before that I did food service with both restaurants and stores for another eight. I will never wish those jobs on anyone because people during the holiday season can be downright evil!  I am thankful, although I do Customer Service from home now I at least don't have to worry about h

Losing a Loved One!

So I debated on writing this for a while, but I think there has to be something for grief. Our grief shows us that we are still alive.  However, one thing that we are never told is grief no longer how long the person we lost is gone, does not fade away. I wish people would be honest and just admit that losing someone you love and care about is hard. It's a gut wrenching feeling that hurts you both emotionally, physically and spiritually for a long time. I mention this because eight years ago today I lost my Grams.  This woman kept me safe from the monster of the world. She was not afraid to tell me that there are secrets in my family and that I do matter.  She taught me more about life than anyone else and the pain I feel is a harsh reminder that I will never see her again.  I finally had to remove her contact from my phone because I would try calling her up till a few months ago. Through the pain and grief you do eventually wake to a new type of life. I have learned t
