Revisited Recipe- Honey Stars

My Grandmother Redmond's Honey Star Cookie recipe was the star of a post back on December 23rd, 2005. for the post :)

She kept this side of the family together with her daughter's children, grandchildren, their current husbands, plus ex-husbands and pretty much cooked the entire meal while walking with a cane or holding onto whatever was near for support. She became crippled in the early 1960's from a car accident..
 Holidays were her thing going all out in that small house on Mill Street.  Those times with my cousins were the best and I miss getting together with them so very much.  We were blessed and did not even know how blessed we were at the time of course. That house would get packed with all of us approximately 17 including 3 daughters, 8 grandchildren, husbands and eventually ex-husbands packed in mainly 2 rooms.  The family had lots of smokers, of course, it was the time I guess.  As we got older we would sneak a beer heading upstairs and then share between the three of us girls thinking we were hot stuff.

Almost to the end of a month of Posting

Almost to the end of November with two days left and the posting everyday challenge experience over for November 2014.  We have talked about the mundane, metalwork, photography, blogging, food, sewing, throwback Thursday, Pennsylvania, list Monday, ETSY, 'on the bench', Pinterest and The Pennsylvania Wilds.  With two more days, I am excited for it may not seem like it, but, I can see how this November has put me in more of a groove of keeping up with posting.

November rainbows still make me smile with running out to snap a photo every time.

“It was November--the month of crimson sunsets, parting birds, deep, sad hymns of the sea, passionate wind-songs in the pines. Anne roamed through the pineland alleys in the park and, as she said, let that great sweeping wind blow the fogs out of her soul.” 
― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
