We’ve got temporary accommodations for now. But they are lovely, just lovely. Here’s the view from the bedroom window.In other news, I amazed myself at being able to remember a recipe I hadn’t used in a while off the top of my head. Chewy chocolate chip cookies.


  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 and 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 heaping tsp baking powder
  • dash of salt
  • 1/2 bag of chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Blend the butter and the sugars together until smooth. Add the egg and the vanilla, and blend some more. Add the flour, baking powder and salt and mix until incorporated. Add the chocolate chips and mix again. Make small balls with your hand and squish them down to make nice little disks. Place the dough disks on a cookie sheet, about 1.5 inches apart and bake for about 12 minutes. The cookies brown on the bottoms first, so they will not look brown when they come out of the oven.

We took these to our first potluck in the community, and it seems they were enjoyed.
