We make our own cakes...


“Life, my brethren, is like plum-cake. In some the plums are all on the top, and we eat them gayly, till we suddenly find they are gone. In others the plums sink to the bottom, and we look for them in vain as we go on, and often come to them when it is too late to enjoy them. But in the well-made cake, the plums are wisely scattered all through, and every mouthful is a pleasure. We make our own cakes, in a great measure, therefore let us look to it, my brethren, that they are mixed according to the best receipt, baked in a well regulated oven, and gratefully eaten with a temperate appetite.”

 ― Louisa May Alcott, An Old-Fashioned Girl

DUTCHESS!

"Beautiful Dreamer..." My father used to play this piece and I love it so....are you an old-fashioned girl, like ME? While I am watching an old movie tonight with Rattus, I will be thinking of you....(don't you wish we could live this way, always?)

Let's have some cake, or in the case of Nowhere, let's have some PIE!
