My son and daughter gave me an Owl cake pan for Mother’s Day. So, I made Scottish Shortbread in it:
Aren’t they the cutest? This pan was bought at World Market.
I love to make pie. I love to see the faces of people who eat pie. It’s so wonderful and fulfilling to produce a baked good that gives others such joy! I had a brilliant – NOT! – idea to make and sell pies. I made many at Thanksgiving and reaped in the money. But each time I do that I am constantly thinking, “What, are you crazy?” It’s a lot of work and I put love and creativity into each one. I’m not so sure it’s worth it as a very small home business. I suppose if I had a commercial kitchen and people who loved to make pie as I do we could have a team thing going and really do well. Not so sure I want to do that. So, I will make pies whenever the demand for or the orders come to me. No problem.
So in 2 days I will be in a car with my husband and son and daughter and their daughter (a 2 year old) on a journey to the east coast. We will stay with our other son and family and I will make them a pie! And we will eat that pie! And we will enjoy that pie! And I will go to the beach and rest and contemplate about that pie and all the joy it brought people and I will be at peace (at piece).
This one is Strawberry Rhubarb. One of my most favorite!
I’m a grandmother. Three of my grandchildren call me Uma. The fourth one calls me Mammy. Call me anything but Grandma. I think that is because my grandmother, the one I knew, was old. Times were different. Most grandparents were older than they are now, when I was a kid. Even the styles were older. They never wore blue jeans or even pants. They did not know how to operate a computer or smart phone – didn’t even have them yet. They crocheted and knitted and baked pies and cookies from scratch. Yummy.
My husband’s grandmother came across the country in a covered wagon and lived to see the first man on the moon! All in one life time. That amazes me.
As a grandparent we have bragging rights and I believe we have spoiling rights. If we say cookies for breakfast then so be it, and so on.
This past weekend we celebrated our youngest grand child’s second birthday. To wrap up the weekend we arranged a ride on a horse.
A picture is worth a thousand words…….
and a video….
First Horse Ride
It was perfect.
As a creative person I tend to have a hard time focusing on a project. Heck, I have a hard time typing this sentence because of a miss-spell in the previous sentence. I must go on and use spell check and not stop every two words to correct on the spot. FOCUS!
I love to write but have been slacking because I also love to crochet. I have the opportunity to sell my articles that I crochet and some are now on display in a dear friends boutique. I can make money. I can bake pies and sell them. I started a painting about a month ago and there it sits while I try to decide which of the two rooms I prefer painting in. Good grief.
I assume this is normal among the creative masses……..is it? I hope so. Distractions are everywhere. I feel like I am surrounded by them. That’s when I can easily say, “Forget it. I’ll just go read a book or watch a movie.”
So in today’s blog I want …………… Oh, I’m going to have another cup of coffee.
I find this picture to be so true that I actually forget my age…..hope you all are blessed that way!
this just about sums it up…….
