Chris is headed elk hunting this weekend with his dad and brother up in the high elevations of Colorado... and I am working on coping.
I've been baking.
I get to see Chris tonight and early tomorrow morning... and that's it for the whole weekend. I spent all of last night baking so I could give him a variety of great fall cookies for his time in the wild.
I made gingersnaps, chocolate-chip cookies, pumpkin-oatmeal-raisin cookies, and pumpkin-oatmeal-chocolate-chip cookies... overall all batches were a success. Then I had to find enough tupperware to put them in.The other way I've been coping is anticipating NEXT weekend, when I will get to see Chris again... and we're going to carve pumpkins. So I have purchased a pumpkin family for my porch to enjoy the anticipation of our fun. The ones on the left are for Chris and his elk (the big one and the tall one) and the ones on the right are for me and Lexie (the medium one and the smallest one). :-DHappy Autumn... I miss Chris. Still trying to cope... maybe I should start softening more butter or buy a family of gourds.
