of bread and conscience


“…Anne had

her little domain

in the

speckless order

one would expect of anyone

brought up by Marilla Cuthbert

and felt
that she could


with a 

   clear conscience…”


Anne’s House of Dreams Ch. 10




Well, my house may not be in the

speckless order

one would expect of anyone brought up by Marilla Cuthbert


I have nine double loaves tucked away in the freezer.

My conscience feels very clear ~ maybe even a little smug ๐Ÿ™‚

Besides, the sun is breaking through the clouds.

Speckless house or not,

I have a yen for a beach ramble.

So I’m off,

as Anne would say,


“gad shoreward”


with love,

    There is nothing like the smell of home made bread unless it is the taste. It was a good beach day today for sure-although I didn’t make it there yet. I think you might like a sea blue for your chair!Take care,Carolyn


  2. Kathie,I wanted to tell you that my 22 year old daughter is re-reading the Anne books again. She’s enchanted (again) at 22 just as she was at 12.Jody


  3. Oh, by the way, I just finished watching another sequel of Avonlea ๐Ÿ™‚ And now they’ve started showing Emily of New Moon. My kids are starting to show interest too, so maybe I’ll get them to read the books too.


  4. Thanks Ellen! One of these days you’ll have to meander over to these shores and join me for a ramble. :)Nan – I think the double loaves are the old-fashioned way of making bread. I learned from Roger’s grandmother and mother. They always did it this way. I find that most Island farm women shape it in the same way. Now I’m off to check your link!
