Life is difficult for me this time of
the year. My mama had always been a
big part of the holidays. The family
would gather there and celebrate with
each other. Towards the end of her life
I did all the cooking. I never took
credit for it because I wanted, well... I
do not know what it is I wanted.
After Mama died I wanted to keep
up the tradition of the family getting
together. It is not to be. One excuse
after another about why they can't at
this time. I am not going to give up. I
will continue to invite them. I will
continue to make up a goody box to
send to each of them.
All my decorations are finally up.
Now comes my favorite part, COOKING
Today I am making fudge. I had to wait
for the rain to stop. Candy does not do
good when it is raining. I am also going
a cherry cheesecake. Then later on
today I may make some brown bread.
Time to get busy. I will write more
