gift and baking day

 When I opened my mailbox today I found a fat yellow envelope all the way from Australia. In that envelope was a lovely gift from my blog friend Suzy Q. I admire her work very much and now I am the owner of one of her special large tags. It is much more beautiful in real, the photo doesn't justice it.
Thank you dear Suzy, it warms my heart!
Below the result of my baking today. Two whole wheat breads and ginger muffins made with fresh ginger.
If you could smell it ;-)  Most of it goes in the freezer...
I have started stitching but it goes slow.
So much paperwork to do...

Als ik mijn ogen dicht doe, ruik ik al dat lekkers. Veel succes met de afwikkeling van alle papieren rompslomp.

Groetjes Annet

Such a nice gift to receive in the post Ati.

Your baking looks good and I am sure tastes wonderful, dare I admit to never having make bread in my life except from a packet mix.
Good to hear you are feeling a little stronger, I am sure you are reliving wonderful times you had with your dear husband which will help you through mourning his passing.

It's so good to see you doing some of the normal things of life. I've been thinking about you all day and decided to come see what you were up to. I'm making grape juice from Concord grapes, so I can make jelly. Next week, applesauce! I wish I could not only smell those muffins, but have one!

Dear Ati
How kind of Suzy sending you such a beautiful collage - putting her heart and love into it, at this sad time for you. I'm sure it helped you a little just knowing that others are sharing in your grief.

Baking is always a comforting thing for me to do and I see it is for you too dear Ati.

I think of you every day,
sending you gentle warm encouraging hugs
you are very brave

much love
