Oatmeal Cookies

When Larry vacuumed today the motor decided to burn up a little and it made the whole house smell. We're burning a scented candle but what better to cover-up the smell of something bad than with something as good as homemade cookies baking.
Since it's a perfect day for baking, snowy and a day you don't want to go out, that's what I am going to do.
Michael is supposed to fly in tonight from Boston at 6:20 but at 2:45 his flight has already been delayed. We'll have to see what happens. If he makes it, he'll have homemade cookies.
