Light Thoughts . . .


What is your favorite kind of Halloween candy?

You know I think I like it all. I'm so sad this year that I will have no trick-or-treaters at home to raid their candy bags. I tried to persuade my college freshman daughter to come home with her roommates and trick-or-treat but they prefer to attend the college Halloween activities there instead - go figure . . .






Can you be addicted to chocolate chip cookies?

I know for certain that I am. If I don't have them frequently I get all headachy, can't concentrate, daydream of chocolate chip cookies hot out of the oven . . .

What does one do about a chocolate chip cookie addiction? Chocolate Chip Cookies Anonymous anyone?






I so wish I could cat nap like my cat . . .

I've just been watching the cat all day - do NOTHING!

It hasn't even budged for the last 5 hours. I think it's still breathing. Wish I could sleep that well, even in the middle of the night . . . I don't sleep that well. (I do have another new funny, well, maybe not SO funny cat story, but that is a blog for another day . . .)





I thought the Visiting Teaching message this month was beautiful:

A little Halloween candy here, a few warm chocolate chip cookies with a glass of milk there, and a cat nap in the sun with a little one . . . that's my kind of nurturing . . . the rising generation:)

“Never forget that these little ones are the sons and daughters of God and that yours is a custodial relationship to them, that He was a parent before you were parents and that He has not relinquished His parental rights or interest in these His little ones. … Rear your children in love, in the nurture and admonition of the Lord." -- President Gordon B HInckley, Ensign, July '97

we don't get many trick or treaters, but still buy candy just in case, and it's Baby Ruth for me, and Kit Kat's for my husband!

I don't think I'm so much addicted to the cookie, just the dough. One bad obsession of mine. I'm gonna say my favorite is anything with chocolate and pb.

Andrea said...

But why would you *want* to do anything about a chocolate chip cookie addiction? ;)

Candy Corn, Jelly apples and Baby Ruth bars :) I love halloween!

I'm stuck on oatmeal cookies more than any other cookie. And now of course I am craving one.

Not much of a candy eater but at Halloween, I love Candy Corn! Yum! And I make halloween cupcakes and cookies and I go overboard eating those!
Oh and this year I made pumpkin fudge for the first time, now addicted to it!
Here to follow you thru MBC!

My favorite is tootsie rolls. But I ever buy them any time during the year, just raid them out of my kids bags at Halloween.

And as for your idea of nuturting . . . I'm all for that!! I could even skip the cookie, just give me a day where I don't have to do anything!! I would just curl up with a book and then take a nap. Ahhhh, just the thought of it makes me want to smile!

I am addicted to chocolate chip cookies as well. But none of that store bought crap. They have to be bakery or oven fresh. In fact, I could go without candy for the rest of my life if I had to just in order to eat cookies. I was one of those kids that had to throw away their Halloween candy because it was going to be Easter soon.

Those cookies look amazing!! so does the cat nap actually...

Life As I Know It said...

Last night after the kids were in bed, I tore open the bag of kit kats and ate FOUR of them. Okay, maybe five.

Heath bars... $100 Grands... Sugar Babies... Milky Ways... oh good grief! I love them all. You know what I love even more? Sugar cookies in the shape of pumpkins, with buttercream frosting. I would leave all the chocolate alone if I could just have a few minutes with my feet up and a plate of those.

Yes, the VT message was lovely this month.

Reeses Peanut Butter Cups!

I am stuck between kit kats and twix! I also love twizzlers!

I wish I could nap like a cat too!

I used to make cookies all the time but had to stop because we ate too many. As for the candy, I'm all for the chocolate! And little Red Chief is so kind about sharing, thankfully.
