Happy Mother's Day!

Wishing all the wonderful moms in Blogland a beautiful and blessed Mother's Day.  I wish my mom and grandmas, and my aunt/Godmother Fannie, all in Heaven, a wonderful day, too.  I know they are with me always.  


Here I am with Grandma Marie in 1957, the year she passed.  And in 1994 with my mom.  This was at my 40th birthday dinner at a restaurant.



Enjoy your day!

Feeling blue

Berries, that is.  My supermarket had huge blueberries for sale a few weeks ago and I purchased three
baskets and froze them in 1-cup measures.

Sorry for this blurry photo.  The iPad camera takes many hissy fits.  


I bet you have all the ingredients in the house.  Maybe you might have strawberries instead, or peaches.

An easy recipe that makes 12 nice sized muffins.  Can't see them but I used muffin liners.  I did make them once before and I added some orange zest.  I was feeling a bit zesty that day, I guess.  (I also happened to have an orange.) They freeze beautifully.

This recipe is from my blogging friend Faye, who writes the Blessed Hearth blog.  Here is a link
http://theblessedhearth.blogspot.com/search/label/blueberry%20muffin%20recipe.  Stop by some time, you will enjoy it.



Til next time!   xo

A Day for Love

Valentine's Day was special in my house growing up.  My dad gave gifts to my mom and me, and when he passed, my mom kept up that tradition.  In turn, I realized that this was not just a day for romantic love and lovers, but for love in all its wonderful forms.


The lovely flowers were a treat I bought myself from Trader Joe's.  The cards are from two sweet friends.  


Yes, love shows up in many ways.  We just need to recognize it!
