The Transfiguration

everything is sacred

Shield of the Day #2620

Jeff has one of those invincible old-fashioned mixing machines in his kitchen – the sort designed in the 50’s, built to survive the apocalypse. It made mixing our cookie dough more simple than I’ve ever known it to be; I’ve been making cookies with recipe since I was three or four years old, and it always took a long bout of wrestling with a bowl and wooden spoon to beat the dough into a smooth solution. The mechanical muscle of this thing gets the job done in just a few seconds. It felt a bit like cheating, but our delicious Charlie cookie came out just as well as we could have hoped for, so there’s no saying that machine-mixed cookies lack heart.

The mixer can be a little messy, though, so as the leaf-shaped beater spun around the bowl, Laurel and Jeff shielded the dough with their hands. Any stray bits fell to the ground, where Moose licked them up.

Afterwards we worked together with Jeff’s brother and Kristina to defuse bombs, and despite a few errant detonations we come out more or less triumphant.

It’s been a good night and we are up way too late, but this week is ours and we can enjoy it as we like.
