To say Monday was not a good day is putting it mildly. I was all primed to tackle the pie crust and so I started...and threw it in the compost instead of the pie plate. Made the chocolate chips cookies instead, at least I can't go wrong with those. I was watching the birds at the feeder and bang one hits the window, I look down and it's a brown creeper, frozen to the floor I know I should go out and help it but I can't. Sounds really weird, I love to watch them, take photos of them but I am scared to death of birds. I guess it's the wing motion, I'm worse about bats but that's for another day. I watched and eventually he flew off. Thank goodness. Actually if he hadn't of hit the window I wouldn't have known he was hanging around, seems a bit shy. Decided with all that, Lexi and I would take a walk, clear my head and maybe revive my mood. I got to thinking about a lady I worked with many years ago at one of my first jobs. I waitressed at the Loyalist Inn through high school and college. Evelyn was a pastry cook there in the early years, she passed away last week at the age of 97. She was one of the best cooks and I would often sneak into the pantry where she made all the good stuff - roll, donuts, pies and cakes. Being kind and jolly she would often give me a roll hot out of the oven, but it was hard to convince her to ruin a piece of pie while getting it out of the pan. So I went home with renewed determination. Well crust #2 did make it to the pie plate and the oven, but still didn't look anything like it should, I filled it with lemon and made meringue for the top. Larry was happy. I told him it will cost $5. as it was suppose to go to a pie auction. It seems my very good friend has been missing the birds the last few days, so thought I had better get on the ball. Had a hard workout at exercise class last night, it was good to do stations for a change.
Time to get another coffee. Enjoy your day!
