It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!


Posts between now and a couple of days after Christmas might be kind of slim.  Ham balls for Christmas dinner are cooking right now, and tomorrow I’ll be making a run to Rolfe to have some gift baskets made up at Busy B’s.  (The jams there are the draw for me.) While I’m in Rolfe, I  might be approving proofs of an additional watercolor. Within the next month, I’ll unveil the image of another of Mother’s watercolors that will be available.

Before Christmas I plan to post Nancy Martin’s (of Rolfe) Gumdrop Muffin recipe.  Before we left Rolfe 24 years ago, Nancy shared the recipe with me. My daughters have looked forward to the muffins every holiday season since.

“See” you in two or three days,

    Love it! Love it all! And had no idea Gumdrop Muffins were a tradition of yours . . . nor that the recipe was from wonderful Nancy!

    Enjoy your days off-blog! You’ve earned them! What a **great** year 2009 has been for you! I’m delighted and proud! XOXOX

    Your mention of the gum drop muffins is inspiring me to make some for friends and the office.

    Yippee, to both of you, Clara and Peggy. Yes, most definitely a tradition…now with Jackson, as well.

    And, yes, I am very delighted and proud. The funds are wonderful. The stories and the people telling them are wonderful. The keeping-alive of the oral histories is wonderful. AND, seeing people who never even knew Mother want to pay money not only for the prints, but also for matting and framing so that they can display her work in their homes is…wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.
