Thanks to all of you who visited in connection with Jan's blog....I am glad to begin to know all of you. Today I was feeling inspired when I was sitting in my kitchen with a cup of coffee and the cinnamon. It smelled like fall, and even though it is a gloomy warm day outside, it seemed toasty and warm inside. So the writing exercise today is....When I smell cinnamon baking it reminds me of____________.
When I smell cinnamon it reminds me of apple cider and fall apples. When I smell cinnamon baking it reminds me of home, and of my Mom who always prepares something special when I come home. I see her in her log cabin, inside the blue and white kitchen with her dog "Sweetie" laying at her feet. When the door opens and she hugs me the smell of cinnamon wafts through the house as I arrive. It is always a reminder of her love and feeling loved. I have been fortunate to have her here right now while I am healing and recovering...but today I am doing the baking!
