According to the American Pie Council, today is "National Pie Day." I learned this from fellow blogger Pat of Mille Fiori Favoriti. Today is another cold but sunny beautiful day in northwest lower Michigan. It warmed up to zero at noon. So I dove into cooking again.... While Split Pea Soup and my basic recipe for Goulash/Chili Base simmered, I tried Pat's Apple Cheese Tart.... doesn't it look yummy? I added a pear as well because I had one!

Have you made resolutions for this new year? Usually I make a list, but seldom act. This year I skipped the list and in time I have found a few important projects. Like sorting through old slides... next I will put the keepers on DVDs. Also sorted through my knitting books, needles and yarn. Found a sock knitting class that begins tomorrow evening and runs for three Thursday evenings... just what I needed.
A blogger friend commented on our fireplace and thought I'd mention that it was made of split Michigan field stone by a remarkable local craftsman. He spent about three weeks building it. Never in a hurry, he sorted, arranged, contemplated every possible rock split and position. He included us in his decision-making process as we went along. He found the pine log for the mantel. All in all, it was a great experience and we are so pleased.

An afternoon off for everyone found my son and granddaughter sledding down our steep driveway today.
