12 Days Of Cookies

Day 3 Candied Cinnamon Swirls
A good Christmas cookie tray should have a cookie for everyone’s taste buds. That is what I believe anyway. So a peanut butter type cookie should be included on it.
Before I get into this Almost A Nutter Butter Cookie. I want to ask, how are you doing this holiday season? I am doing ok. My stress levels now that the hospital is open is down I will admit. However, I have been tired and a little achy lately. I am not getting sick, but I think it is from all the stress from my work moving to a hospital instead of a family health center.
If I am still feeling this way in a few weeks, I think I may want to get my thyroid check. I know this is signs that my thyroid might be going blah. In fact, I think for 2017 I am going to make my health my numbe=or one priority. Next, is losing weight, and third I think will be saving money.
Putting my health first, by that I mean by just loving me. It is that health that people tend to forget about. Some call it mental health, I call it “me” health. I need to remember I am one hell of a woman and I am amazing.
