Peanutbutter cookie kind of day

Lorelei and I decided on peanutbutter cookies today...they may be my favorites.  Just soooo good.

I am trying to get up my nerve to make some yeast rolls has been years since I made any.  There is a recipe I have that calls for 1/2 cup of mashed potatoes and the rolls with the potatoes are so good.  I don't know what the potatoes do;  you certainly can not taste them in any way.  But the rolls are wonderful.

It was up to 12ºF the last I checked...and temps in the high 50's are headed this way.  If 'they' are right.  That will be such a drastic change.  But I will enjoy it to the max.

I am making a shopping list.  It is amazing how much stuff I suddenly need.  LOL  It has actually been 4 or 5 days since I have been to Walmart.  We are usually there at least a couple times a week if not more.  Seems like there will be a medicine to pick up or something to go there for.  And I like to go and get all the bulky items at one time, then go back for regular shopping.  LOL

I am currently reading Twenty Miles from a Match: Homesteading in Western Nevada by Sarah E. Olds.

I have been looking at this book for ages...I had checked the library and no luck there.  So, even though I have tons of books on my kindle, I went ahead and bought it.  I have really enjoyed reading it, but I probably won't read it again.  (I am crazy, I know, but I have certain books I re-read every so often.)
