And, back when Nestle made those ineffable mint chocolate chips, which are sadly d/c'ed (sob), you could make a Tollhouse cookied that tasted exactly like Girl Scout Mint cookies.

SO good and so BAD for your arteries, lol.

Right now, in my freezer, I have Nestle’s Espresso chocolate chips and I bet those would make Tollhouse cookies that are pretty darn skippy.

They were great, although the oatmeal cookies are still my favourite. They also sell cookie dough for shortbread cookies, but those were only my favourite studying in the UK and those cookies were super cheap. For this week's delivery I've ordered the triple chocolate chip cookies.

I still have half of the dough left, but I'll save it for tomorrow, after eating (too much) lasagna I'm snacking on blueberries and grapes tonight.

Waiting for my iPad to update so I can go to bed.

Luna and Maru were very playful today. Chasing each other and play fighting. It's funny, because when Luna feels she's losing the fight she starts hissing, which Maru interprets as that Luna doesn't want to play anymore and she walks away (Maru is a sweetheart), leaving Luna surprised because she does want to keep on playing.

If Maru is fed up with playing and Luna doesn't leave her alone, Maru tries to sit on Luna, specifically on her head. It's funny how she trying to hold Luna down and aim her bum at Luna's head to sit. It never works to dissuade Luna from pestering Maru. Maru usually ends up finding an easily defendable spot where she can keep Luna away.

Luna doesn't understand that if she eats a bug it's gone. She got angry today when the bug had disappeared after she ate it.

My mother has the annoying tendency to keep piles of papers, filled notebooks and other things around the house. Today I got fed up with one pile that kept falling over, so I went through it, threw out what I knew wasn't needed anymore and had my mother deal with the left over pile.

I did find two book giftcards. They're not for a specific store, but in the Netherlands we have a giftcard you can buy books with in most stores that sell books. It's a total of €45 and one has to be used before the end of the year.

So now I'm trying to decide which paper books I want. I think I have decided on Life with the Afterlife by Amy Bruni and then I still have €20 left. I don't want to buy a regular novel, but a book which works better in print than digital, because of pictures or because it's a graphic novel or a colouring book maybe. I am planning on buying local, I don't know which store yet. Probably the small store specializing in art and religious books, they're always happy to order books I want no matter what the subject.

I just made two bracelets and two chains for when I wear a face mask in the store. In between customers or when talking on the phone it's nice to take off my mask. But I'd rather not put it in my pocket and I want to keep it near, when I can easily get it and put in on when it's needed.

I already made one last week and liked it. So I made two more in other colours. It's a great way to use up my seed beads. When I don't need the mask chains anymore I can easily turn the into necklaces.

I'm also planning to make a bunch of ombre bracelets (and maybe mask chains). But I'll need to make lists of which colours I need.

I just took my wife to get her first vaccine shot. I was in a priority group, so I have gotten both of mine, but today was the first day she was eligible for hers. We are lucky to live in a town with a huge university hospital. They were doing nearly 100 appointments in every 10 minute block.

Often bank holidays are on a Monday, like with Easter or Pentecost. Most people have an extra day off, but since our store is closed on Mondays anyway it isn't for us. However, this year King's Day (April 27) is on a Tuesday!

My sister managed to get the 26th off work, too. So now I'm going over to her place after work on 24th until the evening of the 27th. It feels like a miniature vacation!

We haven't planned what we want to do. Probably binge watch Doom Patrol from where we stopped last week. And I already promised to order us a high tea (or maybe something else).

Hopefully the weather will be nice and warm enough to sit outside on her balcony. Iirc it was last year (when it was on a Monday), we spend a good couple of hours sitting in the sun.

Visited the NC Botanical Gardens this afternoon - not much to see yet, but it was pleasant to stroll about ... masked and distanced of course.
