Pear tree lane Farmhouse

One of my most treasured gifts is,......

Written by Sue, Tuesday, September8, 2015,                   cloudy, foggy, temps. high 80's, I can feel fall in the air.


this  recipe organizer, given to me by my mother, Doris, in 2003. Hand written by her when she was quite ill, I often wonder why she took the time to do this while battling the flu! But I know her so well, she has such busy hands, and doesn't sit still for long. ~smile~


                                            

She began with a special note to me, we are not only mother and daughter, we are best friends!


She gave me her own ten commandments, I can attest that she lives by them!

 The pages are filled with her recipes and from her mother and grandmother as well, all tried and true recipes. Every year I ask just one thing from her for Christmas, and that is that she would update it, but we both get so busy and forget, but this year will be different, very soon I am taking the notebook to her, so she will have plenty of time. ~grin~
She even wrote some  baking secrets for me.
 At the end of each page she has either written a bible verse, a quote from either herself or others! I love this one.

This photo was taken about two weeks ago while family was visiting, Dh always grills his famous steaks for the family.So many of you have asked how Mother is doing, as you can see she is doing and looking  "Marvelous Darling", (even as I write this she is at work!") Have I mentioned, she is 86yrs. young?We give thanks to our heavenly Father for His healing touches, and many blessings upon our lives!

While here, our oldest son, wanted to bless us with a special anniversary gift, I will update and reveal real soon, Pinky promise!

~A Personal note from me~
I haven't posted in a while, so I have come to the conclusion that I either have the most boring life, or one of the busiest, I am leaning toward the latter, but it could well be a little of both! LOL I have found that the longer I am away from blogging the harder it is to jump back in! I will be trying real hard to remedy this!
That's all the news from the farmhouse for today!
Much love,
 from me to you
