A Homemade Gift of Friendship


. . . what I like doing best is Nothing."

"How do you do Nothing?" asked Pooh, after he had wondered for a long time.
"Well, it's when people call out at you just as you're going off to do it, What are you going to do, Christopher Robin, and you say, Oh, nothing, and then you go and do it.” 

Just in case today might be that sort of day where you have nothing to do perhaps you might consider making Tuxedo Brownies In A Jar and pass it along to a friend. Or make several jars and save them for Valentine's Day gifts.
