For Ida

Continuing on with my “summer series” . . .

Today I have another “oldie but goodie” post that I’m hoping many of you have not seen before. (Sorry Carol!)

Sir Beads’ darling mother was my inspiration while writing it.

She’s been gone a while now, but she added such richness to our world and lives on in our hearts. 🙂

  1. I have a fantastic mother-in-law too. She loves to clean!!! She was visiting a few weeks ago and she asked if she could organize my kitchen drawers! What a blessing.

  2. That was a “goodie” Crystal! Your mother-in-law sounded like a wonderful lady. You always speak of her with such love in your “voice”. I enjoyed that post, and snatched her recipe right up! I love to bake cookies too! Have a fun day Sweetie…stay cool! xo Paulette 😉

  3. When I was a kid it was the neighbor across the street that was the cookie lady. I still have some of her recipes. I think it is wonderful that you and your MIL got along so well.
    I turn into the cookie lady at christmas, but the rest of the year is devoted to desserts.

  4. Theres nothing like food to bring people together,it seems the “modern”world has missed out on this.The conversations while in the kitchen preparing it and at the table eating it.They say smell is also one of the great memories we keep ,that smell that evokes some long forgotten moment.

  5. What a wonderful sounding mother-in-law! It sounds like your
    post was destined to be on her birthday…
    Thanks for such a heartfelt story!

  6. Oh, the Cookie Lady post. Definitely one of your best!! I am glad you love your M-I-L so much. I don’t get along with mine very well. She does make cookies, but they are not very good.

    However, one of my salesmen came to visit me today. I buy all our Stainless Steel from him and he brought me 3 doz cookies from a bakery in Chicago. How did he know the way to my heart! Cookies from a REAL bakery and NOT the fake grocery store bakery. Anyway, I put 2 doz in the break room for the guys and brought my boys the oatmeal raison. YUM.

    Got here late tonight. Terry starts work an hour later and my morning schedule is ALL messed up!!
    xx, Carol

  7. My Mom was our cookie lady.
    She brought cookies over to
    our house for my sons.

    Have a good weekend.

  8. What a sweet story 🙂 Thanks for sharing! I don’t have a cookie lady in my life, but my aunt always makes sure she has fresh baked goods around the house – she’s more of a pie lady!
