In my post yesterday I told you that I was having computer problems that caused me to not be able to upload the picture. I had intended my title of the post to be "My House Smells Yummy!" Well, that can't be my title this morning....because it doesn't! But I will tell you why my house smelled yummy night before last.
SEVERAL years back when I taught school we stressed to the children to a "Random Acts of Kindness" each day. Do something "just because"! I tell myself that I would love to do more for people but I just don't have time----baloney! I have time to do what I want to do!! My grandsons have the best teachers at school. I can't sing their praises enough. All three of them tell me each time I see them what they have done in class and I will be the first to say that all three are "a hand full". Keith is our special child. He can do so much but has always struggled in school. He has had wonderful teachers but this has been the year that he has felt success. He told me one night when I was helping him with his spelling, "Gigi, my teachers love me." OK.....I'm rambling so on with my story. Several weeks ago I found these individual loaf pans at Hobby Lobby and bought ten of them ($1.00 each). Night before last I made pumpkin bread from the recipe that I posted awhile back (the reason my house smelled YUMMY). This recipe is one of the best I've ever tried. After they cooled I wrapped them in plastic wrap and tied a little prim ribbon around them. I then attached a note thanking the teacher for making a difference in my grandchild's life. The picture above shows them in the box on the way to school to be delivered.
But.....wouldn't you know it.....I tried just to see if the picture (that wouldn't upload the other night) would work and here it is below. At least you can see what the little loaf pans look like. Go find someone today and do a Random Act of Kindness!!
