Quote of the day

In the rhythm of the needles

there is music for the soul.

father's day cakes

On sunday, we celebrated father's day.  In my case, it's also grandfather's day...  both my father (75) and my father-in-law (72) are still very much alive and kicking.  My sons don't realise how lucky they are.

I never knew my grandfathers.  One died even before I was born, and my other grandfather died when I was too little to remember much.
I do recall one thing : he was a schoolteacher, and in one of his cupboards at home, he kept a pile of brand new excercise books.  When we visited , he always gave me one, and asked me if I could write some words for him.  I couldn't, I had not learned how to write.  But I was very proud to show him on one occasion that I could write my first name.  I must have been 3 or 4 years old.  It was just before I learned to crochet....

I baked 2 low-calory cheesecakes, one covered with strawberries and one covered with blueberries.
I baked a cake with cinnamon and other spices.
And I baked a apricot flan (vlaai)

All very low in calories and no sugar added, because of the diabetes diets they are following.
We had a great time, my husband showed some DVD's with old - really old - films of the children when they were babies, and we all were 20 years younger.  How nice to notice that we haven't changed a bit.  (or so we believe...)
