the smell of victory

i worked from home today and, thankfully, was able to get a lot of stuff accomplished. i've been sitting under a big deadline, and there always just seems to be something else to do....

anyway, around 4:30, i decided to take a break and do some baking. and no, this wasn't an inspired decision. see, in october, we held a silent auction to benefit the komen foundation and the prez of my company purchased two baked goods items to be claimed at a later date. well, this, my friends, is the later date. SO, i just made two lemon pound cakes (glazed with lemon/triple sec and sugar) and mixed up a batch of cookie dough (whole grain cookies with oats, chocolate chips, and walnuts). i feel pretty satisfied that i got so much done in just about an hour and a half. the cakes are cooling in the dining room, and now i'm back to work....

i must say, though, it is rather distracting to sit and smell the delightful aroma of lemon and liquor and buttery cake wafting through my apartment. must control myself. it's for a good cause after all:).
