............what a mess I have made. This is why I don't bake very much. It always seems that something goes wrong. I thought I would make a fresh peach cobbler last night. I sliced the peaches and poured sugar over them to make a nice syrup. Followed the directions of this recipe that I got from Our Old Southern House blog. Natalie lives here in the same city I live in. She actually lives in a very old house that they have been fixing up. I did not even know about her or her blog until she left me a comment. Then when I saw photos of our little town I commented back and came to find out that she and my daughter went to school together. It is such a small world. Anyway getting back to the mess I made. I placed the cobbler in the oven and then I started smelling something. I opened the oven and a plume of smoke poured out! The dish I used was too small and the cobbler decided to pour over the edges and burn in my oven.
I grabbed a cookie sheet to catch the mess that continued to fall.
Oh, what a MESS!
Now I have to deal with this today. It is a self cleaning oven, but I have to get most of this up first or I will have a house full of smoke and stinch! It already smells bad enough when I clean the oven and there aren't any spills in it.
So I am going to clean up this crud and then go out and cut the grass while the house smells bad for three hours.
I also wanted to let those who haven't heard that we lost one of our bloggers this week in a car accident. I did not know her, but read about it on two other blogs today in my blog roll. Kathysue of
Good Life of Design was a blogging friend of Marija of Holding Court blog and was in hopes of meeting her friend some day. Please read her tribute to her and read Marija's husband's tribute, too. It is so touching and heart wrenching at the same time. Also Acanthus and Acorn blog has a touching story, too. They also had become very close and even spoke on the phone and were hoping to meet some day. I believe Marija did leave me a couple of comments on my blog and I know she will be missed in the blogging community. Be sure and read these stories.
Everyone try to have a great day today. Live everyday to the fullest!
Y'all come back now,
