Flashback, Sugar High

frdaiyOne memory that always sticks out is cookies around Christmas time. Anytime I have the desire to bake I think about Christmas cookies. I am looking forward to Christmas and a break from the heat. I rarely welcome winter. Thank goodness summer is almost over. 6ish more weeks.

What are you counting down?

The best part about visiting home is eating at your favorite joint.

The worst part about visiting home is that I am now in the land of slow/no internet. I am at the local library right now using some free WiFi to get my updates done. I’m not taking a hiatus per se but responding to comments, etc. will be delayed. I look forward to some internet down time and also my return in a week or two.

Throwback, Awaiting August

A state fair staple, funnel cake.

August means the last full month of summer and two full weeks of state fair celebration. Ever since we moved to Missouri, my family and I would attend the state fair each year building a tradition. About a decade ago when my sister graduated from high school (geez, I feel old now) the tradition faded into a rare appearance at the fair.

I’m travelling home for a few weeks next month and would love to fit in a visit to the fair. Besides the must haves of funnel cake, corn dogs, and weird things deep fried, I like visiting the state fair to reminisce the good old days.
