Happy October everyone! Time just seems to be flying by, doesn’t it? It seems the older I get, the faster it goes.Things change….I change….My kids get older….My hair gets grayer….And let’s not even talk about my hips. Thanks for not bringing it up.
Speaking of change, sometimes do you think about the things that were important to you when you were younger? Talents you were developing, skills you had? The other day my husband and I were playing a piano duet in our living room. My twin boys went outside to play and our neighbor asked them “Hey boys, what are your parents doing in there? That is such lovely music coming through the window!”
“Oh….my Dad is just teaching my Mom how to play the piano.”
Apparently the boys can’t read the diploma hanging on my wall that says Bachelor of Music. Nor have they realized that the early morning piano students parading through here come to be taught by a professional.
Her name’s not Dad. (though the man can play circles around me!)
Recently my TeenSonMark wondered what in the world I would do all day if I didn’t have the dishes to keep me company.
Professional Dish Do-er Extraordinaire! No wonder my twins don’t know I can play the piano. I can’t get out from under the pile of dishes!
I will say that the pile of dishes around here has increased some what in the past year. It was just last October that I started this food blog. Wow. When I started, I had no idea how sitting at this computer screen and typing up recipes for you all would affect my life. I have really been blessed with so many wonderful opportunities because of this blog. Thank you so much for reading about this crazy life of ours, and for trying these recipes. I hope they have brought you some joy! Goodness knows, I am having a wonderful time writing them. You all really make my life a lot of fun. You are some pretty fine blog reading folks. Thanks for hanging around.
These Pumpkin Patch Cookies were one of the first recipes I posted on the blog last October. Since my Mom and Sisters were about the only ones reading back then, I thought I would give them another plug. They are so much fun to make! I hope you give them a try! You can access the recipe by clicking here.
Have a great day! See you back here soon for my October Menu, and some more great recipes.
