Then and now

Remember when your grandmother was a gray-haired woman with an apron over her house dress? And how she baked cookies from memory, or used a well-worn cookbook? That was then, this is now.

 This grandmother still bakes the cookies from scratch, sometimes from memory, sometimes from a cookbook, but increasingly from recipes found online. Gotta keep up the grands!


  1. Sometimes I worry that we grans might be a bit of a disappointment, not as cosy as old-fashioned ones! I don't even bake cookies. Maybe I'd better remedy that.

  2. Actually, I think I live on my computer at times. I cannot imagine my life without one. Kind of scary isn't it?

  3. Alas, I have no grandchildren -- but I am gray-haired and I do bake cookies.
