Today was a day to stay home and spend the bulk of the day studying for the Mother's Day
message that I am giving at our church.
First I did my regular devotions, caught up on some email correspondence, sent some texts,
and took some phone calls.
The whole time my brain was thinking of an idea for a soft lemon sugar cookie.
I knew that it would be futile to put my nose to the grindstone and study until I got those cookies off of my mind.
Now mind you, my husband isn't supposed to eat sugary treats, and I really don't need the extra calories either,
so after I finished the one with the bite in it in the photo above, enjoying it immensely with a cup of my favorite tea, the rest went into the freezer to be enjoyed by our church leadership at a retreat this weekend.
They turned out soft and buttery and lemony, just like in my imagination.
(I'll post the recipe later this week.)
