. . . delicious Lutheran pies, made lovingly by good Lutheran women!
Rhubarb and a few apple pies today. Peach, cherry and the rest of the apple pies later.
Fellowship with other women always accompany playing with pie crust (which is made with 7-Up!). We talk about our kids, our grandkids and some even speak proudly of great-grandkids. We talk about the 'olden' days and about people who have come and gone in our lives. We even gossip just a little, but being in the church kitchen, we sneak looks over our shoulders to see who is listening.
There is nothing more satisfying than a good morning's work. Knowing you contributed to a worthy cause. Feeling that life's problems have been discussed thoroughly and solved satisfactorially. We have caught up with each other and can go on with grateful hearts for our church family and our friendships.
Thanksgiving tables will be laden with pie. Each buyer has permission to take the credit and can honestly announce that the pie was made from scratch.
I don't like pie.
I have been burning the midnight oil sewing. I have been invited to show my wares at an open house with 18 other vendors. Oh dear! I can't tell you how anxious I am. I have sold so many of my creations this year that I can hardly keep up but I am still amazed that anyone wants the stuff I make. Wish me luck girls! If nothing sells, I guess I'll have a series of giveaways before Christmas!
Better get back to work . . .
