where am I?
I was just meandering through the day of multicrafty, admiring her beautiful creative family and I remembered that it is not all work around here(even though My mind seems like it has problems switching gears). We are still having family outings...
~and date nights;(this week daddy took me to the Broken Spoke for a little honkytonk lovin')
...we danced more times than I can count to the stylings of my 'this weeks fav' country music sensation Bruce Robison. I cant stop playing his latest offering "New World"; or repeating the track California '85(much to Dada's annoyance)
~And I am still enjoying tea and toast(well pumpkin/zucchini bread recipe link below) with burger in the mornings; and finally we can do it outside .
~It is true I have a few jars of paint open now and I am fearful of making a muddy picture.
The reality is I am making this up as I go along: there is no right or wrong way to it. I guess this post is to remind me that this time is a very tiny segment in my so far, long life and ...I am still here. I am very excited and slightly frazzled over one particular thing that is in the works right now. I have been keeping it a secret from the cyber part of my life so as not to jinx it or otherwise screw it up. I promise to share when all is set in print.
~I meant to share this a week ago... I get itchy for pumpkin pie as soon as I see those little sugar pumpkins at the market but I don't want to burn out before the holidays (I will still be eating pumpkin pie on New Years Eve) So I start with pumpkin bread. Last year I tested several recipes because I made pumpkin and apple harvest cake for burger's first birthday party. My favorite was a Pumpkin zucchini recipe.(This is not the recipe I used but I cannot seem to locate mine...yes I lost it in a week ~this is close to what I remember) I use fresh pumpkin and I always use pecans cause Jack liked pecans best. I also double the recipe, this way I use the whole pumpkin that I bake. The bread freezes super fabulously or makes a sweet little gift to help welcome the change of seasons(which are always way overdue in central Texas).
