Tooby Magruder Strikes Again

When I was growing up I had this friend named Tooby...Tooby Magruder, to be exact. What a name, huh?

Well, Tooby loved cookies. All kinds, really, but mostly chocolate chips. He decided early on in life that when he grew up he would become a cookie "chef". Time went by and I lost touch with Tooby until just recently when he came to me and asked me to help him get his cookie business going.

So I did.....

Tooby Magruder has started making cookie mixes in decorative packaging and selling them for a steal! I tried one of these mixes and was AMAZED and FERHOODLED at how moist and tasty they were. So we started going to farmer's markets and they sold like hotcakes at IHOP! Then we placed them in our store in Colorado Springs and people come back time after time after time to buy these crazy cookie mixes. I feel like banging myself on the head and saying "You coulda had a cookie mix!"

So we started selling them on our online store and on and ecrater and, oh, yes, we must never forget etsy and ebay. (As a matter of fact, I do spend all day on the computer!)

As for Tooby? Well it surprises me that some gal has not grabbed him up and claimed him for her own with his incredible culinary skills, but his mission in life is to make people happy, if only for a moment, with his cookies.

I'm Officially a Slug

The definition of a slug is this: a slow-moving, slimy creature. Well, I am not slimy in the true sense of the word, but I HAVE BEEN slow-moving. Yeah...the last time I blogged was Christmas Eve 2008.

My apologies.....

Since then? Well, since then I have knit many prayer shawls, made many new friends, found a new doctor at National Jewish in Denver, CO to manage my rheumatoid arthritis, and found a new church in Woodland Park, Colorado....Woodland Park Community Church.

Life is good, even though I am moving in slow motion these days. I haven't felt well for quite some time, but my doctors are on the move and things are looking up. Will probably start on Orencia soon, that replacing Humira.

Please forgive me for being so slow. My intentions were good, but you know what they say about good intentions......

We are having a blizzard here today so I will close the store early and go home. It is one of those days when you make a pot of your favorite soup, curl up with one of those afghans you knitted and watch a chick flick.

Until next time,
