You know that whole Sunday afternoon baking thing? Didn’t happen. First of all, I completely forgot that my D (of the world famous J & D) had a concert Sunday afternoon. I thought I would have time to make a batch of cookies before going, but after finally reading the recipe, realized I was missing important ingredients for both of the so-called fast cookies. In other words, I screwed up…………..again. Ah, well. I’m of a mind that music and hearing my D sing is more important and that I should be able to get my cookies baked in the evenings this week. Of course, then it hit me. When I don’t blog, I’m not held accountable for my lack of planning and awful memory. Do I feel bad now that I’m back blogging? Nah. You all are way more forgiving of my monkey brain/bad planning than I am and as time wears on, it’s not bothering me as much.
The concert was beautiful, well executed and very timely (meaning it was music for the Advent Season). There was a beautiful Magnificat (song of Mary) and a nice version of O Magnum Mysterium (not my favorite one, that one will be my soundtrack for today). I enjoy the music of the Collegium Vocale of St. Louis and they give occasional concerts at my church. Before the concert I was given my Christmas gift from my D, potholders. Look at these beauties.
They are solid and gorgeous. Now. How do I keep them clean???????? I am the messiest cook in the world. This is a huge concern for me. Of course, D said it’s no big deal and they’re gonna get dirty, but they are just so pretty. Perfect for cookie baking, don’t you think?
Gotta get going. Here are The Cambridge Singers and my absolute favorite O Magnum Mysterium by Thomas from the late 1500′s.
Have a good Monday all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
