There are 5.4 million people who have Alzheimer's. It cost 183 billion dollars in annual costs. Alz's is the 6th leading cause of death.
To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence... 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.

Pie For Breakfast

Is it Friday all ready? This week has flown by. I have been getting more sleep this week than in 3 years. Not sure if my body is liking it yet. Woke every morning with a headache. So far so good on mom's new mattress. I have not noticed any red spots. Thank God.

I went shopping yesterday for Thanksgiving stuff. My son's request was for Lemon Pie.Well he might go to his girlfriend's so I made his pie yesterday. This morning mom and I had a slice. She did have her oatmeal first. But enjoyed the pie more. We are going to have turkey, mashed potatoes and dressing on turkey day and a friend of mine gave me some canned green beans so I can't wait to try them. Oh! and of course we will half to have candied yams. Another of my son's favorites. Mine too.

Not homemade dressing.That was my mom's job. She also would make homemade egg noodles and let them dry on the counter. I tried that once. To much work. They tasted OK. But not like moms.

Mom will eat the mashed potatoes and that is it and maybe some pumpkin pie. I better get a pie so she will have something else soft to eat. Not homemade either. Mom made the best homemade pumpkin pie. My grandma tried to trick me once into eating sweet potatoe pie by telling me it was pumpkin. It was good but it was not pumpkin. I am also going to make the spice apple cake my blogger friend Dolores shared with me. Thank you again. It is my brothers favorite cake and this recipe is so easy. Mom also used to make that homemade. Not me. Sorry everybody. You don't realize everything your mom used to do till you start missing or needing it.

I wonder if my son will miss me when he moves out. I bet he will on laundry day.Because that is all I do for him now . He eats out or brings food home to all us and buys everything he needs. He stays away from laundry. I know he will miss me on laundry day for sure. That is good.

Spice Cake: spice cake mix,4 eggs , 1 can of apple pie filling. That's all. mix all together.
350 degrees for 40 mins. It is great with cream cheese frosting.


  1. Glad to hear the mattress is working out good for your mom.
    My mom hates to cook so there are not too many foods that I miss her cooking. She does make the best apple pie and will be bringing one down for Thanksgiving.

  2. Hi Karen, found you via Carl's blog. I always go there to get to you , now I just follow you and it is easier. :) I lost my mom two years ago. I still pick up my phone to call her when I have a question or I want to share some news. know you are my prayers.

  3. Thanks and I love apple pie. And both of you are in my prayers too.

  4. Hi Karen, thank you for your sweet comments on my blog.
    Lemon pie for breakfast or any other time, sounds good to me. I love lemon pie, and I should be ashamed to say, I've never made lemon pie. My grandmother's lemon pie was so good!

    I'm trying the recipe that I gave you, using cherry pie filling and yellow cake. I'll let you know how it turns out, it's in the oven cooking right now.

    I betcha your son will miss more than laundry!!!

    Have a good weekend!

  5. Your welcome and Thanks again for the cake recipe I have used and posted it alot.I cheat on the lemon pie I just use lemon pudding and a store bought crust. My son likes graham cracker the best . I can make the Marainge. It is good. But I am gaining all my weight back. That is not good.


Thanks for visiting my blog and I love reading your comments. Please come back soon. Karen
