I'm smiling looking at today's picture and I've been smiling all week when I've visited your weblog. Thanks for the guest appearances of Mrs. Bale and Onslow (also one of my favorite TV personalities). Since it's Saturday and I have more time to myself, I'm going back to re-read your reviews of Martha Bergland's books. I'm glad you include excerpts from the stories as they show the author's writing style. Sometimes I choose a book based on the author's style rather than the storyline! I haven't taken the "color green" test yet but I am green with envy of your baking skills and collection of recipes. The corn meal muffins will be made for my son who is a cornbread connoisseur (did I spell that right?) or maybe I should say a cornbread gourmet (it's easier to spell).
Gosh, what a nice, nice comment, Catherine Mary! It makes me feel so good. Onslow has been a hit! Maybe he should pop up more often with witty remarks. :<)There is one excerpt of the book that sounds awkward, and I wavered back and forth about using it for that reason. It is the grandfather's words. Nothing else in the book sounds like that so I thought it was a perfectly passionate example of the old man's speech. Please don't think the book is written in that manner, because it isn't. She is a lovely writer. My geography is terrible but I wonder if the landscape will seem at all familiar to you. I don't know if the cornbread fan will like them but this fan thinks they are the best ever. :<)Thanks, again, for your words.
Cute picture, Nan. ;) And I love the bee in your header picture. Excellent photo.Hope it cools off for you pretty soon. It's actually a bit chilly here on the Oregon coast.
I'll answer your comments as soon as I possibly can. Please do come back if you've asked a question.Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
