Hannah surprised me this afternoon when she showed me a boxed muffin mix and asked if she could make them. Cranberry orange! Although I have always enjoyed baking, it is not one of my dear daughter's favorite pastimes. I smiled and said, "Of course!" I love cranberry orange muffins.
My Darling surprised me the other day too. He made me a Mitten Tree for drying hats and coats by the wood stove. (I dressed it up for the photo.) This would have come in very handy a few years ago when my house was full of children who loved the snow, but I know it will still be helpful now as large gloves and mittens get wet too. I think it's a rather ingenious invention even if I did come up with it myself.
