  1. Hello Marie Elena,

    Same for your poetry!
    It is fun to follow the along for the latest poem from the Great Lakes!
    What a windy day it is!



  2. Hi Sheila,

    So glad you enjoyed the poem! Fruit cake has declined in popularity here in Ontario but it has remained as a part of the tradition of holiday stories!
    Hope you have fun with the name cards–those old calendars are a treasure trove of graphics and numbers/letters. This would be fun to do with the grandchildren on a snowy day!



  3. How furn! I have never been to a magazine on line.

    Your poem reminded me of a story my mother tells of her mother. She would bake her Christmas fruit cakes in early December. The whole family would help by cracking nuts and chopping fruit. Grandma would wrap the cake and put it in the cupboard until Christmas day.

    One Sunday while they were at church some one came into the house and stole the cake. They didn’t take anything but the cake. Grandma was so sad.

    I was quite young when I first heard this story. I couldn’t imagine anyone wanting a fruit cake bad enough to steal it.
    Now I have a high affinity for my grandmother’s fruit cake recipe and get out my baking pans to keep the tradition alive.

    The name books are a great idea! I have a bunch of old calendars I have been saving. I think I will dig them out when my grandkids come so we can make name books.

    Thanks for the enjoyable time. And the trip down memory lane.
