Blog 156 – June 5, 2009 Temperatures in the upper 80’s, sunny and hot, nice shower late in the evening.
Grated carrot, flour, brown sugar, canola oil, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla, all ingredients to complete the birthday cake of choice for my sweet goddaughter. As I sifted the flour into the bowl, I am reminded of past birthdays celebrated. This one however, is special because we will be sharing it with Mike – Erin’s father. Years have separated us all in miles and his surprise visit has made her birthday special for everyone. Now, a few days later, we are having an encore celebration with lunch at our home. Now pouring the spicy batter into the pan for baking I am grateful – for family and friends who gather in celebration of life and love and recognition of all the miracles bestowed on us.
