A Nice Surprise

Today was our son's 23rd birthday. I made his cake last night, a Boston Cream Pie. With his new work schedule we don't see him much until the weekend, but everyone should have cake on their birthday.

His sweet girlfriend came over and made him homemade chicken noodle soup for lunch. (He had not felt well since having a flu shot this weekend.). She was kind enough to make enough soup for his dad and I to have for dinner tonight too.

It was a great surprise to have such a great dinner just waiting for us tonight. We also enjoyed a little of his cake too. He tried to tell us it wasn't good and he would make himself eat the whole thing by himself over he next couple of days. He is such a tease.

Happy birthday to our great son today!

After being the target of someone's constant criticism and harsh words today, I plan to turn this into a positive.

My goal this week is to be kinder. With each person I am in contact this week, I hope to have and extra dose of kindness. We are never promised tomorrow and how sad it would be to spend our last days being mean and hurtful to others.

Hope everyone has a great week! I plan to.

Apples, yum!

Two fall traditions are in the books at our house. Last week I made a fresh apple cake. I have written about this cake before. It brings back memories from my childhood and reminds me of my dad. He loved apples and most anything made from apples.

The second fall tradition also reminds me of my dad. I made fried apple pies this weekend. I also made a few peach ones as well. So yummy, and really not that difficult to make. Apple is my favorite fried pie flavor, how about you?
