I am beginning to believe that my brain has begun to decay as a result of the cold, damp weather that has decided to call this part of Canada "home". As a direct result of "brain rot" I have failed to motivate myself to produce the type of results for the "Wordless Wednesday" on Tuesday, that would normally make me proud..... or at the very least quite pleased.
With that disclaimer behind me I will proceed. The topic that comes most easily to mind would, of course, be Easter.
My sweet hubby surprised me on Saturday morning with this gorgeous Easter arrangement. I am such a sucker for beautiful flowers and this group is no exception.
As is our tradition, our family gathers for a very informal brunch. It is usually the first time since Christmas that we have been together. Although we do not do a "sit down" meal..... I tried, but in our democratic family I was voted down....I made a token attempt at providing appropriate "atmosphere". They, on the other hand, are more interested in the content of the meal than on ambiance.
After all was said and done.... or at least eaten and finished... I remembered the cookies that my grand daughter and her friend helped me make on Saturday. I apologize for the lack of magazine quality photo that we produced, but not for the memories that were made with the making of said cookies.
Also, it needs to be noted that the recipe for these delights was obtained from my sister's blog at Older Mommy Still Yummy. I have made "frogs" for many years but this recipe varied somewhat from mine and for that I am very grateful! The cookies were soft and delicious and are currently gone!
I must admit, as always, I enjoy the company of our adult children and our beautiful chocolate fueled grandchildren.
