Baking, Hiking and more

CookiesSo 2013 is well under way now. How is the new year treating everyone? No complaints from me so far. We have had the strangest weather. Super freezing cold (which is not abnormal for January) but this weekend it's in the 50ies (10-12C) which is pretty warm for this month. It's been very cloudy and gloomy though but still can't complain too much.

Taking advantage of the warmer weather today and going on a short hike. You can click here to see the description. We aren't sure how moist the ground will be since all the snow melted so we picked something like that. Hopefully that will work out. After the hike we will go to 121 Restaurant at the Oxford airport which is always a fun place.  

Yesterday we slept in late, then went grocery shopping and lounged around the house for a bit. (played my Sims). In the evening Mike went to Two Steps with our friend John and I went over to their apartment to hang out with Jana for a girly evening of baking. We made poppyseed cake and cookies. (both recipes my mom sent). The cookies are part of her original Christmas recipe (originally my grandmother's). Jana and I did pretty well in duplicating the taste. We didn't have the same decorations so we experimented a little but they came out tasting very delicious. To be fair Jana did most of the hard work (rolling out the dough, fighting with the dough when it wouldn't cooperate, etc.) and I was in charge of spreading the jam, decorating with the sprinkles etc. All in all a fun evening. :) Had smoothies, watched a silly chick flick and baked. 

Well let's see what next week brings. Next holiday already around the corner. Martin Luther King Day. Luckily it's a holiday that mostly only affects the schools.
