Bath Time Booty and Cookies

With the weather starting to cool off a good bit, I will be taking more baths instead of showers.  There is no better way to relax and warm up than turn on some nice music, light a few candles, maybe have a glass of wine, and take a nice, hot bath.  I've always loved bath accessories like those little scented cubes that dissolve in the water, bubble bath, or whatever.  The last week or so I have been using bath melts, a scrub and soaps from Lydia Marie's Bath and Body Boutique.
This stuff looks and smells good enough to eat!  Especially the brown sugar whipped body scrub.  Yummy!  The thumbprint bath melts make my whole apartment smell good, too.  Below are some pictures of a few of the products I've been using.  Mmmmmmm!!!!  The little cup cakes, that is soap!  How cool is that?  The close up is of the whipped body scrub.  Doesn't it look fabulous?

So anyhow, sadly I will not be doing much knitting today.  I will be busy baking cookies, cookies, and more cookies for the old man to take hunting.  I love to bake this time of year.  It warms the place up and I love the smell of the butter and sugars mixing and starting to waft around!  On the cookie menu is, of course, chocolate chip, along with fruit drops, mini lady locks, pizzelles, a pumpkin roll, some fudge, and a few dozen other cookies as soon as I can decide which ones to make.  I have several magazines full of cookie recipes that I've been perusing the last couple of weeks.  It's so hard to decide which ones to make because they all look soooo good!  Now, the lady locks will have to be finished tomorrow, because the process is a bit lengthy.  All day today I will be playing with the dough.  Once the dough is made, it must be chilled.  Then you spread butter on the dough, fold it up, and chill again.  This process is repeated until two cups of butter have been used.  (Yes, 2 cups of butter!  I can feel my butt gaining about 10 pounds just thinking of all that butter!! ) Then the dough is chilled overnight, and will be ready to cut, wrap around the forms, and bake in the morning. I bought these forms close to 15 years ago, and have never used them!  So I'm anxious to see how they turn out.  I'll post some pics later when everything else (hopefully!) is all done.  And I can't wait to snack on a few myself  :0)
