The girl got me up at dark’o’fifteen this morning.

That is even more dark’o’fifteen than I normally get up.

Today is ‘see you at the pole’, and the girls wanted to participate.

So, away I went.

Sans my last 2 hours of sleep.

Sans breakfast.

Sans sanity.

They had doughnuts for all the participants.

I didn’t get one, so now I want a doughnut.

A fresh glazed doughnut.

So fresh that it melts in your mouth when you bite into it.

I need to go back to bed.

Maybe when I wake up there will be a doughnut on the counter.

A girl can dream.

Today’s TWD is Cottage Cheese Pufflets that Jacque of Daisy Lane Cakes picked these for us today.


Cottage Cheese Pufflets

To be very truthful, when I saw the name of it, I was all  cottage cheese?   in a pufflet?  what exactly is a pufflet, and why in the world would you put cottage cheese in them?

So I perused the question and answers on our lovely TWD blog to see what the hype was about.

Most everyone said that the dough was sticky and had to be chilled, and re-chilled and re-re-chilled.

This chic doesn’t have time for chilling and rolling and patting and marking with a C this week.

So I didn’t.

Next week is something chocolate.

Whooo Hoooo!

People don’t write anymore.

It is a lost art.

It is way to easy to grab the phone, pull up email, text or Twitter.

I heart this letter.

It gives me a window into the person that wrote it, a window into the person that received it, and a window to my past.

Write a letter today.

It will be slow, but it will mean so much to the person receiving it.

Y’all have my address, right?
