We made pumpkin bread for our friends and neighbors this year.
The mail man, who is willing to brave doggies and mud to drop off packages at our house instead of just leaving a "pick up at post office" card got one. The ladies at the Library got one. Our nice auto repair shop got two. And a few of our neighbors, who we know mostly as people who drive down the road to get their mail, got some -- and who now will know us as the girlies who can cook good banana bread. Heh.
We also found the real "Cullen" house as we drove around. It's hidden way back behind the trees, and is a massive castle of a thing on an unknown amount of acreage. It's fallen a bit into disrepair, but the current owner is slowly restoring it. But man -- the thing is massive, and has turrets and bridges, and a solarium. And we never had a clue it was there. Just a shock to suddenly see it appear out of no where.
And now we're going to go to the beach and watch the Christmas Sunset. Yea!
Best wishes to you all,
