Thank you for all your kind words, prayers and support. It’s nice to know that if you’re going to fall apart for the whole internet to see, that people will be understanding.
But like the song says, morning has broken, and spring has arrived and I’m doing much better. It seems like I should get rid of my notebook, but I can’t. It’s a snapshot of how my life once was and to throw it away would be to throw out a huge part of me. But it needs to find a home. After some thought, I know where to put it, and it’ll be safe and I won’t ever stumble upon it accidentally.
So…the shamrock cookies turned out well! Rolling them out thicker definitely helped and so did using a dough board. I’ve got yucky linoleum counters, so I use a dough board with a cloth for pie crusts, it just never occurred to me to use it with cookie dough. Duh. The combination was a winner and I was able to roll out all the dough, cut out and bake all the cookies in under an hour.
And I promise to finish the rest of my Rite of Election story this weekend!!!
