Once the dough got too stiff for the mixer, I dumped the dough into a larger bowl, got out the large wooden spoon and stirred in the last of the flour.
"I just remembered why I don't like making sugar cookies" I said "I really don't like having to stir all this dough by hand."
Brielle said "I bet your grandma didn't have an electric mixer to mix the dough in the first place. Was she a very patient person?"
"Yes she was, in fact, she nursed twins until they were 18 months old, and during that time still managed to take care of her two other small children, make bread, do laundry, keep the house clean, make breakfast, lunch and dinner, take care of a garden, can vegetables from the garden and she even crocheted a queen size bedspread!"
Brielle chuckled and said "Obviously, she didn't have Facebook."
