That homemaking feeling!
I think Homemaking is close to the hearts of nearly everyone in Blogland!
I love a bout of "Blog Hopping" Disease. I don't try and cure myself, more like immerse myself in all its symptoms! And nearly always I am delighted to see what everyone is creating at home.
This morning I felt like baking.
Cooking has always been close to my heart.
When all the children were home something always seemed to be in the oven, and often they were at my side baking cakes or biscuits.
Nowadays, when it is often just the two of us baking results in a glorious few minutes and then a battle with the waistline!
However, this morning I got my old and faithful recipe book out and started with something sweet!
A recipe that brings back such happy memories of a very dear friend.
Next a few savoury things. I am always amazed how far a pound of pastry goes.
So two quiches, one for tea and one for the freezer.
And some tasty cheese, chorizo and red onion pasties. Not very loyal to my roots but very delicious all the same!
Of course I actually know what all this baking is about.

I love to think my children are adventurous. I love to see them meeting new challenges. I love their confidence and sense of freedom. I love all of these things but I also love to think of them at home,just being safe and enjoying a bit of homemaking!
