*No, not holiday cookies. Contrary to what some
So while I'm getting all prepared, gathering my ingredients and as I emptied a bag of flour into the storage container, I noticed something. Something strange. I lurrrrve the sound and the feel of that thick, soft, hard-pliable paper package that flour comes in. It's oddly soothing and even more oddly pleasurable. To the point where I want to sneak into the dark, hidden recesses of my pantry and have my way with it.
I am not kidding.
If no cookies result today, you alone, reader, will know the reason why.
So here's hoping each of you discovers a new, secret pleasure this holiday season. Or even a pleasure you can share out loud with a big surprise look on your face as a camera awaits that all important snap. Or maybe a quiet pleasure as you watch those you love, be it family or friends, talk and laugh and just be together.
Whatever your pleasure, may it be merry!
