Seems like it should be an auspicious day -- a date that happens once a century -- but my plans are pretty mundane.  I need to go to the DMV, the grocery store, and pick up a few presents and some wrapping paper.  I am going to start my Christmas cookies this afternoon, though, and that should be fun.  I will crank the Christmas music up and taste all the dough before it goes into the oven! :)


Pete and I went into Manhattan for a Christmas party on Monday, held at the Regency Whist Club on the Upper East Side, just steps away from Central Park, which was shrouded in fog.  The weather was horrendous -- really warm and very wet, which was not much fun -- but the party was.  I wanted to look at the Holiday Shops at Grand Central and the windows at Lord & Taylor, so we did that, too, and stopped for a snack at Le Pain Quotidian.  I took bad photos on my iPhone -- just warning you.

Sounds like a great plan to me, tasting the dough before putting them in the oven. Have fun making all those Christmas cookies. My mouth is watering just thinking of it.

I can only imagine all the beautiful storefront all decorated for Christmas. I've seen some displays on the web. The downtown must get seriously crowded on the weekend. I think that Monday was a good day to be there.

Have a great rest of the week Sarah.
