Celebrate a Day



Today is Baking Day!

Usually I write more here about Friday poems, but during this time, I am instead sharing weekday writing videos for students and teachers at Keeping a Notebook and will crosspost here on Fridays.

Jama is hosting today's Poetry Friday roundup over at Jama's Alphabet Soup with a delightful poem by Jeff Friedman and photographs that have joyfully convinced me to make chococolate chip cookies this afternoon. Happy National Chocolate Chip Day to one and all, and thank you to Jama for inspiring my writing (and baking) today!

5:10pm Update - I baked these Sourdough Chocolate Chip Cookies - YUM! If you have extra sourdough discard in your refrigerator, this is a great way to use it.

Happy Cookies!

  8. Tossing cookies like frisbees is almost what Mardi Gras in New Orleans is like. Cookies for everyone. What a friendly, generous poem.

  9. Amy, your post today was full of fun. I like the paperbag notebook you created and the chocolate chip cookie poem-the daydream idea is clever. Since I am hosting Poetry Friday this coming week, I thought I might take a look at the National Celebrate a Day calendar as suggested by you.

  10. Oh, this is wonderful! I love the phrasing in the line "I will make it times 100" and then the generosity and glory of those tossing frisbee cookies.

  11. What a delightful post Amy. Love the idea of making a journal from paper bags. One of the best parts of hearing you read the poem was seeing your face that didn't start smiling, while reading the humongous ingredients–delicious all around, thanks! xo
