Cake Mix Cookies

Yesterday, I returned to my “normal” life after enjoying a relaxing, rejuvenating vacation. I got to spend time with my family, visit with some friends, swim, and read at my leisure. Despite a sinus infection or toothache (culprit remains under investigation) that resulted in a trip to an out-of-network doctor’s office and a pair of broken flip flops that resulted in a mile walk through a city while barefoot, I had a wonderful time.

I also accidentally dropped one flip flop from my remaining (and favorite) pair. It was given away by fellow beach combers to teenagers hiking along the beach before I realized it was missing. That resulted in my slightly broken heart.

Oh, and did you hear about that storm called a Derecho? It tore off roofs, took down massive trees, and knocked out everyone’s power. That went through too. Yet still, I had a wonderful time. It’s amazing what a change of scenery and being around people you’ve loved for as long as you can remember can do for your spirit.

Since I’ve been playing on vacation, I pirated these cake mix cookies from my mom. She baked them and placed them on a platter. I saw them sitting on the counter unattended and thought, “that’s content I can use.” So I snapped some pictures as I sampled more than my fair share. Shameless. Enjoy!
