This Morning My Mom Insisted I Open A Package From Arizona To Find A Plethora Of Christmas Cookies
My mom asked about the package delivery soon after answering the phone.
When I said I had not yet opened the package mom told me I needed to open it at once, because the box was full of stuff which needed to be eaten.
So, after getting off the phone I opened the box and what to my wondering eyes appeared? A selection of the greatest hits of my mom's Christmas cookies.
The box contained the assortment you see in the foreground, plus a sub-box full of gingersnap cookies, plus the fruitcake hovering above the boxes.
I have never understood some people's aversion to fruitcake. I have always liked fruitcake. Maybe it is my mom's fruitcake I have always liked and that I have never been exposed to the type fruitcake to which people have an aversion.
Due to my mom's macular degeneration my dad acts as mom's sous chef for cooking operations. I suspect maybe my sister was part of this cookie cooking operation. Though I have seen my mom and dad in cooperative cooking mode and it is an impressively efficient operation.
I may be going into a form of diabetic shock in the coming day or two. I am not used to eating dessert type sugary stuff.....
