Tropical storm . . .

We still have electrical power at 6:30 this morning.

Implied in that statement are: safety, hot water, warm food, coffee - plus fresh milk for my coffee, bountiful ice, comfortable sleeping (and reading) conditions, telephone service, contact with the outer world, and being able to watch the Olympics.

Oh, and being able to scan and print a copy of the daily crossword for each of us.

Plus we have some sugar-free cookies yet to eat. We bought them as storm-treats to console us for loss of some of the things that disappear when power goes.

Thank you, Lord, that we don't need that cookie love this morning . . .

Wow, sugar free cookies. Can I come to your house? We're watching the weather like a hawk. I realized that it's hard to stay up until the Olympics end at night and then get up in time to catch the first weather. Your eyes are tired. Your brain is tired. Your remote finger is tired. Sugar free cookies sound like what the doctor ordered!

We don't know about the doctor, but 01 Doc is welcome to all our cookies, share and share alike. You better hurry, though, the good ones are going fast.

What kind of sugar fee cookies?

The best ones are the sugar free from the WD bakery. They make a moist oatmeal raisin that is, well, too good. The ones we have came from Publix and are choc chip by Murray. Good with coffee, though. Without coffee, I have to nibble at them because they're kinda crispy (dry).
