Morning Reads for National Cookie Cutter Week (December 1)

Hello, and happy December! I’ve always loved this day because it was my grandparents’ wedding anniversary, so it was a special day to bridge the Thanksgiving-to-Christmas gap. It’s also the first day I’ve been able to live in my new (to me) house because I finally got someone to turn on my water yesterday. Moving is something, isn’t it?

Anyway, yes, I’m now a homeowner and no longer a renter, and I moved from the metropolis of Milledgeville to the wee town of Sparta. And now I will be taking the drum of demanding rural broadband from Nathan, as it’s my reality. Honestly, I do have broadband because I’m in the city of Sparta, but I went from cable to broadband, which is its own step backwards of two decades. Good heavens, how do people live like this in 2021? Guess I’ll be finding out…

Enough about me. It’s National Cookie Cutter Week because, y’all, ’tis the season to bake some Christmas cookies. Did you know there was a National Cookie Cutter Club? I didn’t, but thanks to this celebration, I’ve found them, and their special cookie cutter for 2021’s week.

Anyway, I’m going to get us on to the news now, I swear. Let’s go.
