A car wreck and some cookies

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

Monday night was, er, eventful.
David called me on his way home from work and was talking when I suddenly heard screeching tires, expletives, and the unmistakable crunch of metal. The phone hit the ground; then...silence. I was terrified. It seemed to go on forever.  He started groaning and then said, "I was just in an accident. Car is totaled. I need you to come get me."

Good news: Multiple cars were involved but there were NO injuries. D was sore and had a headache but otherwise fine. Pretty miraculous.
Bad news: His car (my old car) is totaled. As in, top of the engine sheered off (plus more...obviously.)
Good news: Car is replaceable.

This car got me through college, grad-school, and beyond. It had 210K miles and although no beauty, was a terrific (read: paid for!) commuter car. I was sad to see her lifted on that tow truck.
Goodbye old friend.

Car wreck = frantic Faith = need to bake.
Actually, that's not true. I baked these earlier on Monday, but you better believe I "treated" myself to 1 (or 3) when we made it home.
Stress kills. Cookies save.
True story.

Grandma's no-fail Snickerdoodles.
I think I take after my Grandma btw. Every time we visit she bakes up some delicious cake or pastry as a welcome.
Baking is her joy. It's mine too.


Confession: These pictures made me hungry. I'm now chewing one of these as I type.


Oh, if you want the recipe here you go.

Now I have to stop eating and get back to work...researching vehicles.
Fun fun.

Happy Wednesday!


  1. So sorry about your totaled vehicle, but I'm glad no one was hurt. I don't blame you for eating 3 cookies.

  2. Oh my gosh Faith....I'm so glad David's okay!! How scary. :( I love snickerdoodles, and these pictures made me hungry, too, but I don't have a nearby supply...can I come get some from you? ;)

  3. Wow, so glad he's okay! And you're right, cars are replaceable. But it can still be sad to watch an old "friend" get carted away by a tow truck. I'll eat some cookies for you today too :)

  4. Wow I'm glad he's ok!
    Snickerdoodles are the best. Especially with milk!
    I passed a blog award along to you today if you wanna hop over take a look :)

  5. Oh my, your car looks pretty messed up! Glad to hear everybody was okay. I am sorry about your car being totalled and all, but I am sure you will find a new one pretty soon. By the way, those cookies look very yummy. Home-baked cookies are the best!
