Yesterday I had a craving for some spaghetti and with my doing remote learning with Zaylee I really didn’t have time to set in to making breadsticks or yeast rolls so I fixed these biscuits. They were so good with the spaghetti, they will remind you a little of the cheddar bay biscuits but with a twist.
Yesterday evening I posted on my personal facebook page about how I am enjoying the cooler temperatures, watching the leaves on the mountain taking on shades of orange and yellow and the numerous does and fawns that run through my yard. I was feeling Blessed with the little piece of Heaven that I stand on, the beauty that surrounds me. I’ve heard Nannie Polly say those same words many times as I was growing up. She would be in the yard, on the porch or in the kitchen and you would here her being thankful for the “little piece of Heaven” she was standing on. I watched them through the years struggle as many others did, I watched them rejoice for the bountiful Blessings and I watched how proud they both were of what they had achieved on the land that they worked so hard for. I loved the stories she and Papa would tell us of how they started out. A one room house, wood stove, lanterns for light and a well for water. Nannie speaking of only owning 2 house dresses back then and have to wash one in the creek to have a clean one to wear the next day. She and Papa working side by side to build their home place and tend to the fields that they planted. They were thankful and they were Blessed and both of them made sure all us kids knew where we came from…”good stock” as Papa would say. With everything going on in this world we live in it feels good to just stop and be thankful and Blessed for where you’re standing.
