Baking, Memories and Accident

Wonderful cool weather, 55 on the screen porch, opened door and another visitor
hanging on for dear life.
Cool weather and early morning baking, pumpkin bread in the oven smells so good and can
have a slice with coffee this morning. 3 loaves and 2 need to go in the freezer quickly
before they are consumed.  Trying to make some things ahead for when family visits or to
share.  Recipe was shared in post October 10, 2010.
Never fails when I make my bed in the morning and place this pillow in the center that memories
surface.   When pillow was spotted on a trip to town with my special friend, I purchased and she
made the comment it needs fringe and I will do it for you.   She was talented with a needle
and wish I had this talent which greatgrandmother, grandmother and mother possessed.

Another pillow a gift from her since she was aware of my love for gardening.

Clarice has now been gone about 14 years, she was 78 and had a brain aneorysim.

Now the sad news
one of my younger granddaughter's, an avid soccer player, practice yesterday and broke
her right ankle.   Quick healing wishes go out to my girl from grandma.
much I post
is a repeat
like my memories are at this time of life.
Since new readers come quite freqently
my repeats are new to them..

Day begins by the woods...

I do love your loaf tins, must try and find your pumpkin recipe.

Poor granddaughter, how frustrating for her.

who cares if we repeat? We've earned the privilege!

Pienosole and WWW, thanks for commenting
and guess I have earned the privilege to repeat myself.
Never thought of it that way :)
The small pans purchased over 50 years ago, so handy
and never use the larger ones and make many stem pan
recipes in these small loaf pans.

Coffee and pumpkin bread sound good for a chilly morning.

I'm so ready for chilly weather. It is 10:47 EST and 86 degrees but with the humidity feels like it is 102. Miserable out.

I'm so sorry to hear about your granddaughter. May her break mend and heal soon.

Not much to wonder about for the future, so repeat good memories.
Love the pillows.
I hope grand daughter isn't out for the whole season. Darnnit!

I'm enjoying similar weather here....Coffee & pumpkin bread are the perfect accompaniments I think.
Good memories are treasures to enjoy. Hold on to them; savor them & make them last as long as you can.
