It seems to me that in times of stress we need to band together and support one another. Maybe we can’t hug but we can stay together while standing apart. We can’t convene in large groups but we can still
enjoy pie. Didn’t see that coming I’m sure! I’m not trying to make light of the current situation as it’s very real. The world news is stark and the days ahead are full of uncertainty. All the more reason to support one another; share our toilet paper supplies (😏) and reach out in fellowship.
We got together last night, no hugs and an appropriate distance apart, for our dessert night. We made pie in honour of pie day but the cream puffs were the one that may have had some of us reaching for seconds. I mean, come on, they are like two bites and are full of air and whipped cream so how could they be bad for you? In my world whipped cream ranks right at the top of the food chain along with chocolate. The real winner was the support we felt from our fellowship time. We talked of the pandemic but also touched on many other important, to us, subjects like all our grandchildren and our children. The five of us go a long ways back and it’s always great to spend time together.
Today’s pie was a result of left over pastry and the fact that today was pie day. I also have apple filling squirreled away in the freezer awaiting such a situation. It went quite nicely with a roast chicken dinner shared with loved ones.
We had some items planned for today that required our son in law. Which means that Annabelle got to help Grampa and Nan build the last table. I read an interesting blog post today about how food connects us; shared recipes and fellowship at the table. Thoughts of others stream through our memories when we eat certain foods. How the smell of roasting chicken can transport us back to a simpler time.
Stay together my friends while we stand apart. And if in doubt put whipping cream on the pie 😏.
