Birthday Banana Bread

Yes, the birthday is here and it is snow and cold. I had bananas calling to me…

It is a hard day for me, I am a twin….my twin passed in 2014, yes, 7th birthday without her…she was 56 and passed from brain bleed/stroke…a very heartbreaking day. The joy is we were born on my brothers 4th birday. yes, true. So we did the birthday call thing this morning.

Simple to make and tastes so good. During the past year like many….this has been made alot at our house.

Nothing fancy but easy to make

Mash the Bananas, Yes, 3 eggs, put dry ingredients and and stir together. I add cinnamon..love cinnamon

It looks mushy and heavy but tastes good. Sooooo I have no fancy kitchen, it does not matter, You will love my baking cupboard.

Yes, a dishwasher now a baking center for over a year now…it works. I wash all my dishes by hand cause it helps my arthritis

Also the past year has been hard on my family ….it is just my husband and me. He was forced into early retirement and I already have ongoing health issues, so our income is limited. Life is that way…..

So enjoy the banana Bread….Also, I did get a Car battery for a Birthday gift, that little battery for a 2001 Chevy Malibu was over $180.00 yikes, my husband put it in…….it is cold here, so it zaps everything. The car battery was pass due, so had to be done.

My adventure for the day…..card making is going on but thought you would love what I did today.

Where You Been?

I have not been here since May 4…Now June 29. I have been making masks and more masks plus card making. My husband has been home and life have changed greatly. No work, no money but lots of time. Yes, have to look at life differently. I have been blessed making masks, it it helps others and people are wanting them and they cover the cost of making them.

Ok, you may not like University of Michigan…I love them. They saved my life with surgery back in 2016. Yes, I love them too cause of my niece, she graduated from U of M in 2019. I never had the opportunity to go, now that I am in my 60’s, I treasure she had the opportunity. Her Mom, my twin, never had much help in going to college, the importance…..her Mom knew how important. My twin had a stroke and passed away in 2014, two weeks before her daughter was to graduate from High school. She graduated with honors and had many scholorships to go to U of M. She graduated May 5, 2019, five years to the date of her Mom’s passing. This made the date May 5, a happy memory vs. a sad day. Life goes on, never the same.

Now, the year 2020, a pandemic…..My niece is in New York, New York. I have been a nervous basket case. Now, things are looking better….My niece is looking for work, praying she gets what is good and a fit for her hard college work.

So life goes on. What have you been doing? Yes, card making but so much more….. lots of cooking, baking and washing dishes….and that is life. Staying home and being safe.
