Post-Surgery Gingersnaps

Well, the shoulder surgery was a success. For those of you who haven’t heard, on Thursday I had arthroscopic outpatient surgery on my right shoulder. I dislocated it about 4 years ago when I was in high school and ever since, it has repeatedly dislocated at random. Pretty painful!
I have been resting for days, icing my shoulder and taking pain meds…not too bad so far!
I’m already bored and tired of sitting around but after I finish my research paper tomorrow, I plan on taking full advantage of being lazy!

My mom ( well, mostly me) had a hankering for some Christmas baking, so we decided to make my great-grandmothers gingersnaps! These cookies were delicious! Crisp on the outside, and chewy in the middle. I think gingersnaps may be my favorite holiday cookie, I love the spicy flavor!
