Making Calls

Today, I would like to made return visits to some people who visited Lemon Drop Pie over the weekend. As I was mentally adding this to my to-do list, I thought it sounded rather like I needed to make some calls. Not phone calling, but Jane Austin type calls. Victorian calls.

This could prove to be difficult, however, as Lily is running around in circles yelling, “I’m the gingerbread girl! You can’t catch me!” as Emmy is chasing wildly after her. So much for little children being seen and not heard.

Speaking of gingerbread, I would like to try to make some with the girls today. I’ve never made it before, and think store-bought gingerbread has the consistency of cardboard. I’m sure making some from scratch must be tastier, don’t you?

I also must finish some correspondence today as well. (a.k.a. the Christmas letter) By necessity, it happens to be washing day. I will have to remind the maid. (a.k.a. me!)

I’ll be sure to drop off my calling card in your parlor when I come calling. In the meantime, have a wonderful Monday!

  1. Now I'm in the mood to watch a Jane Austen movie while munching on my mom's gingerbread men. Too bad she hasn't made them yet. 🙂 (Hmm, that's another recipe to add to my blog sometime!)And yes, homemade is better than store-bought!

  2. I need to make some calls too. It is wash day here too, but I think it is every day…my maid is always behind.

  3. Sounds like a busy day! Did you find a good recipe for the gingerbread man cookies? I was just thinking how I would like to try making those as well. And I'm with you…the store bought ones are not the greatest. If you found a recipe you liked, I'd love to try it!
