Late Sunday afternoon - the mixing bowl, loaf pans and cookies sheets drying on my kitchen counter.
Note: The baking was also my attempt to stay away from the television and the constant coverage of the 10th anniversary of 9-11-01. All the remembering and rehashing was wearing me down and I needed to get away from those sights & sounds. My family wasn't directly affected by what happened -- and I can't even imagine the feelings of the families who lost loved ones on that awful day. As I measured and stirred and baked -- my thoughts & prayers were directed to those families. May they have comfort in their memories of their life before -- and the courage to make new memories in here and now.
