So... the alarm clock was set quite early today as Hubby wanted to be in line at a food pantry at 7:00. Imagine my surprise as I turned on the local news and heard about a meteor the size of a school bus hitting Russia.
It's a good thing we are no longer in a cold war... even then there were reports that some Russians thought it was an American weapon.
Hubby and I found it rather ironic that we'd been watching a show about meteors on TV yesterday (rather, listening to it from the kitchen). There has been a plethora of shows about meteors and asteroids in the past couple of days as a "near miss" asteroid is passing earth today.
Such events make me glad I truly believe... without a shadow of a doubt... that God is in control. ;)
A gentle snow has been falling throughout the day, which put me in the mood to bake something. I didn't want anything complicated or a new recipe. So... I went through the recipe card file which holds my "tried and true treasures" and came upon a favorite cinnamon quick bread recipe, one given to a teenage Stephanie from a friend in Iowa.
Hubby arrived home to the aroma of something baking and asked how soon it would be done. After all these years, I still must explain the concept of letting baked goods "rest" for a short time before cutting into them. Otherwise, he would have been in front of the oven as soon as the buzzer went off.
Patience may be a virtue but when the aroma of cinnamon bread is speaking to you... it is not easy.
