NONNIE'S PHOTO A DAY, Day 32: Sweets for My Sweetness

his last birthday cake
sweet and oozing with chocolate
his preferred flavor!

Of course, none of us knew it would be his last birthday.  As you can see, I'm not known for my cake decorating. But I did make the cake from scratch and wrote the birthday greeting for him. He enjoyed having his family there to help him celebrate.

Oh what a sweet farewell... maybe every birthday cake should be prepared with such love.

Oozing chocolate is the best kind of cake :)
Oh my gosh. I can't imagine. All those "lasts" ... small things really are the big things. I think all the time about the things I find annoying in the ones I love and live with, but if any of them were gone, it'd be the irritations I'd miss the most. So quickly they morph into sweet idiosyncrasies.

I love this. I'm so sorry for your loss, but happy for your beautiful memories.

Scratch cakes are the best. I always let my kids make and decorate their own (or at least, help me do it).

A doubly sweet memory ... and sincerest condolences. Bastet

Pondering about My Blog

I've been through quite a bit these past months that I haven't posted. 
First, packing and moving and then unpacking
. The first step of unpacking was my taking down boxes that were five and six boxes high. 
About two weeks after I’d moved and was in the midst of unpacking, I developed horrendous pain in my ribs. I slathered on my gel I use to alleviate Fibromyalgia pain. Realizing that even that was not helping. Trying to make a long story short- Asked for pain pillsNo help; asked for another kindDoctor wanted to see meWent in- he didn’t understand why I was still in painSent me to get x-raysDiagnosis: compressed fracture in my 9th vertebraCause: osteporosisNow on meds for that I’ve discovered that anytime I overdo, pain comes back, not quite full-blown, but enough that I must stop doing whatever I’m doing. That includes sitting at my computer writing. I wanted to bring my friends up-to-date; I’m pondering whether I should stop blogging altogether or do it only occasionally. Thank…

Organic and Fresh Salad

The beans seen above and layered on my salad below are grown by my granddaughter Candice.  The name of the beans is Tanya's Pink Pods. All veggies on her Earth Candy Acres farm are organically grown. The beans are delicious and tender, making a grand addition to my salad. Topping the veggies are dried cranberries, adding a bit of sweetness.
