It's February 1 and it feels like so many beginnings today.

30 years ago today I gave up my coveted status of being an only child (Happy Birthday Gene!).

Today is the first day at work we'll be operating under our new name. One of the partners got a sweet judge position--who can blame him for ditching the firm? Sadly his name appears on EVERYTHING and it's going to be an adventure remembering what all needs to be replaced!

I got a great phone call this weekend that I can't yet blog about, but needless to say when I do, it's gonna be jawesome! Something to look forward to in the near future!

And finally, Knitcircus #9 went live! Go and check out the great patterns and articles.

Oh, and check out the cookies too!


Cookie of the Week this week is just a simple M&M cookie. Simple yet delicious!

I love M&M cookies(or anything with M&Ms). Your cookies look yummy.

Can't wait to hear about your phone call.

I know about name changes for work. I started at Lutheran Hospital(almost 30 years ago!), then we merged with Moline Public Hospital & became United Medical Center. We were United for about 3 years then merged with Fransican Hospital(which was originally St Anthony's Hospital where Grandma Riley did her RN training-Aunt Peggy did her training at "Frannie")-3 hospitals then 2 on the IL side of the river-Trinity Medical Center-West Campus & 7th St. Campus. Another merge followed with Davenport(IA) Medical Center, built a new hospital in Bettendorf(IA)-Trinity at Terrace Park. Now we have controlling interest in the Muscatine IA hospital(Unity). Now we are going to be called, Trinity Medical Center with just the name of the city where the hospital is. No wonder the communities we serve get confused where they are supposed to go....I get confused & I'm an employee!

Love, Aunt Susan

Yum! Are your cookies as moist as they look? What's your secret? Mine end up dry after the first day...its so annoying.

Hmmm, can't wait to hear about your phone call.

Do you have to answer the phone using the company's name first? (Hello "name of company," this is "Mary" is how I do it...and unfortunately I might do it when answering my cell phone if I'm caught off guard...which is always highly amusing.) A name change would totally throw me.

Yey for good phone calls and yummy cookies! Even if they're not exciting to you...they look awesome.

Those m&m cookies look good. I am a big time fan of the cookie. I'm trying to cut back though. The recipe you left in KnitCircus has me curious about cinnamon chips. I can't believe the could taste better than real cinnamon, but you make them sound and look so appealing. I am guessing the phone call is that you're going to be writing a cookie cookbook. You totally could be up there with the 1954 one from the gas company.

I like M&M cookies almost as much as regular chocolate chips. I haven't made them since the girls were little. I used to buy mini m&m's when they were on sale. They're great for toppings.

You make the most delicious looking cookies. You almost inspire me to actually utilize my stove and give homemade cookies a try...almost. :)
