Hey there Internet.


This past week I have struggled.


It has been just an absolutely awful week.


But I am thankful.


I am thankful…


♥  That GOD is in control


♥  For family and friends who listen and care


♥  Tears that cleanse the soul

Hey there Internet.


It is FFwD day.


Today’s recipe is Marie-Hélèn’s Apple Cake.


But I didn’t make it.


Seriously!   I still have apple pie from Tuesday.


And the apples…there are so many apples…I’m going nuts with the apples.

Hey there Internet.

Today is Tuesday, and I made a pie.

The girl helped me with the filling.

I had her use brown sugar instead of white.


I cut out little apples for the top crust.

But the crust was so fragile that it pulled apart, and the fluted edges just kind of melted off the pie plate.


I sure hope it tastes better than it looks.

I’ll find out tonight when we try it.

If you’d like to make an All-American All-Delicious Apple Pie, go check out Emily’s blog.   She has the recipe.

It is Friday Monday Internet and I am nosy.


  1. What was the last thing you baked?
  2. What was the last thing you tried on?
  3. What was the last thing you purchased on credit?
  4. What was the last thing you put a postage stamp on?
  5. What was the last thing you took a photo of?





1.  The last thing I baked was a frozen pizza


2.  The last thing I tried on was a hoodie…it was way to big.


3.  The last thing I purchased on credit was the way-to-big hoodie


4.  A bill was the last thing I put a stamp on


5.  The last photo I took was ~~looking in my camera~~a picture of one of the girls friends scooping out ice cream.



How about you?

Today I am thankful for…


♥  The self cleaning feature on my oven.


♥  That Superman is willing to put lotion on my back


♥  For the Chips
