My weekend was full of meetings and fun and family and friends. Dominoes season is almost over -- just one more Sunday to play! I will miss is so much. I'm planning to make cookies shaped like dominoes for our last game -- I need to either find some tiny chocolate chips or M&Ms or else make some pretty big cookies! For this past weekend's dominoes Sunday I made a Winter Fruit pie, with apples, pears, cranberries and figs -- surprisingly delicious!
My work schedule today was sort of split in half because I had calls to make in the morning, and a meeting to go to at night. So I used the middle of the day to bake cupcakes and take them to a new drop-in center for the mentally ill that just opened up down the road. They were so excited to see me, or at least excited to see the cupcakes. I turned them all into smurfs with my blue frosted cupcakes - blue tongues and mouths everywhere I looked! - but they didn't mind a bit.
I will definitely make a point of taking cookies or cupcakes to the drop in center whenever I can, and I also plan to try to come up with some fun craft ideas to hold a group there once in awhile to help them try new things, just as I do with the grief groups.
Meanwhile, while I'm baking pies and cupcakes, I still have piles of papers and projects that need to be sorted and finished and put away. My house is in danger of looking like a hoarder lives here so I really, really need to clean and organize. Maybe tomorrow. Instead of doing the things I should, I made a couple of cute St. Patrick's days pouches this weekend, and I (finally) finished my flannel baby rag quilt. Avoidance seems to inspire me. :)
