Today is November 15, 2010! I want to wish Quinlyn Caroline, my granddaughter who lives here, a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Today she is 13 years old and is as tall as I am now. Hard to believe, but that's life, isn't it? The picture was made this summer, but I think she's grown quite a bit since then. We both love dolls and share lots of conversations about them, as well as our love of communicating in different ways. She wrote a novel of 10,000 words for the NaNoWriMo web site in two days! And it's a very good story. Quinlyn's birthday dinner will be here at my house, and I'll make her a pineapple cake. The original pineapple cake is in James Beard's American Cookery, but I quickly realized that I didn't want to make a white cake and have to take out the yokes. So after I found the recipe for a lighter pound cake, I use that recipe and simply put pineapple in the batter. Then I make a cream cheese icing. Quinlyn loves it! And she also loves that she can be on Facebook now!
Laboring and Prospering with the Lord
