Retirement Bliss

Today was one of those days I used to dream about when I was working 8 to 5.  I'd be thinking ... "I wish I were at home, puttering around the house, baking cookies and listening to Christmas music".  Well... I got to do all of the above today, 
and it was 
Deliciously Fun!     

Played with flowers from Costco 

wish I could inject the smell 

I Love being retired
I tried a couple of new cookie recipes ... 
This was the Best One!
Butterscotch Gingerbread Cookies

Also made a pecan pie (by special request)
Oh...and some cornbread...for the stuffing I'll be making Thursday.
The piddling part of my day ..
Well, I painted trim moulding in our guest bathroom...One of those jobs I'd been putting off.  Does anyone else wait until company is coming to do little chores like that?  When I think about it...I should plan to have guests at least once a month...  
Maybe my to-do list would become a ta-done list!
 Happy Thanksgiving!
