When one little grandgirlie was napping yesterday, the “big girl” grandgirlie and I got to do grown up things. Play Lite Brite, paint toe nails (a must when wearing Doris Day dress up shoes), and have craft time. She wanted to draw a bit and got some white paper from the “paper machine”. I asked what is a “paper machine”? The machine on your desk that makes paper to draw on. 🙂 She had gotten some white copy paper from our printer. I love that she thinks the machine makes paper for her.
One of my favorite foods as a kid and for that matter a grown up girl, is Apple Butter. I hardly tell anyone that. When I was a kiddo, it seemed only the old ladies and me, liked the stuff. With all the canning my mother, grandmother and relatives did, there was only one or two people who would make and can, Apple Butter. Oh man, I just loved the flavor, the spices and the smooth creamy richness…………and the SUGAR. Of course the sugar. Over the years, I have purchased a jar or two here or there. The ingredients do not make you feel good about buying the product.
It happened on Friday last week……………..a girlfriend brought a bag of gifts to celebrate our weekend away. Some food grade Lavender (you just know my mind is swirling on that one ingredient) , there was also a jaunty, sassy ceramic chicken (whom I have fallen in love with and smile every time I see her………..she seems like a Mavis. I have no idea why) and a jar of APPLE BUTTER. I can’t really remember if she knew that I adored it or not. I LOVE that she thought I would. This product is the best I have had in ages and ages. It is from Bellewood Acres, Lynden, Washington. www.bellewoodapples.com BE STILL MY HEART. There is absolutely NO sugar added. The ingredient list is this: apples, spices. God Bless them and my friend. What a lovely treat. Just so dang good. Five gold stars good, yes, that good.
This week Mr. Right brought me a dozen roses. No it is not my birthday, not our anniversary, he was not in the dog house, not one little reason to deserve gorgeous roses. I think it is ’cause he likes me. Have I mentioned lately what a lucky girl I am ? Well, I am. period. the end.
So to sum up,
Lite Brite: GOOD
Painted toe nails: GOOD
Paper making machine: GOOD
Apple Butter: GOOD
Roses from Mr. Right: GOOD
Looks like a lot of GOOD!
Happy Friday y’all!
Here’s to a GOOD weekend ahead!
