I'm Not The Terminator

But, I'm back. I think.

In fact today it is Mother's Day and I was thinking about my mom.  She would make gingerbread as a special treat and then take the thick cream from our old Guernsey cow and whip it into ambrosia.  Well, it was to me.  Whipped cream with lots of sugar and real vanilla that she purchased from a traveling salesman, The Raleigh Man.  (I admit for many years I thought he WAS The Rolly Man.  The Rolly Polly Man, because he was quite rotund!  Kids.)

Awww... memories. If you never had fresh hot gingerbread, and cold sweet whipped cream, then you've missed out.

I closed my blog for awhile and I'm just going to refer you to a post from my daughter Karmyn that will answer questions ... if you have any.

ps.  while I was "gone" Blogger changed EVERYTHING.  I'm not even sure I know how to post anymore.

Well hello! Its good to see you this mother's day. What a nice memory of your mother and fresh whipped cream, which I love, btw. I went to your daughters blog. Now I'm concerned! I hope everything has settled own.

Glad to see you're back, and yes, the new Blogger changes are very confusing. :( Then again, it is easier to post pictures now than it used to be, so it's not all bad.

I'm sorry to hear what happened in your family. You'd think the press would have to contact people in order to use their writing/photos.

Happy Mother's Day!

That sounds like a wonderful treat! I haven't had it.

Good to "see" you here again :)

Hi Pamela...good to hear from you again! Yep I have had warm gingerbread with cream on top...I agree with you...It's to die for!!!!
Sorry to hear about what happened with the press n your daughters blog! In my opinion...the news media uses n abuses our "Freedom of speech" in this country! I am very careful of what I put on my blog n Face book. You never know who is looking n searching. Lots of sick minds out there!

Sounds really yummy!!!
and memories are the best (o:
I hate it when they change things!!!
I will read your daughters post.
Sweet Memories of your Mom! Oh I love Gingerbread too..and with fresh cream what a treat!!
I am glad to see that you are back. Blogger did make some changes but I use Live Writer so not much changed except the dashboard is confusing and how you get there..I am convinced Blogger is run by people that love to irritate us old ladies.
Happy Mother's Day! Of course I am a day late with that wish:)

Welcome back!
Faye said…
She's back-k-k! Glad of it and that things have calmed down enough that you feel okay to post again. Like everyone else it's been a long slog since January--too many problems with no good solutions. Blogging and Facebook makes me happy and forget the stress for a bit.

I have had homemade gingerbread but we never whipped cream--saved it to make butter--which was pretty good and pretty when it came out of those wooden butter molds.

Mm... now that you mention it... My grandma made an apple crisp that had everyone drooling... and no one, but no one, makes a better pumpkin pie than my mom.
