That is so true -- my mother did a very similar thing. And I agree I spell love just the same way that you do :)

Dogwood said...

Mom and pie. Yep.
That is a good one.
My mom was not a very good cook.
She did not enjoy it.
But oh my granny.
She would cook up a storm for us.
Love love love.

Libbie said...

Huh...so I am suppose to be that good hearted aren't I...you are right...usually I look at my husbands piece & say, "Are you gonna eat that?" :) I better work on that :)

Take Care!!

Hi Koralee,

Beautiful photo of the pies in the making and the cute rolling pin.
Hope that you are having a happy week, dear friend

Hugs
Carolyn

Maria said...

Hi Koralee! Oh this post made me smile wide.
...and how hard it would be to pass up a piece of pie {even for a child of my heart}
But...a sacrifice ~ surely to win a jewel for a heavenly crown ;o)

Your mother must be a lovely person indeed.
If the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, and the apple is lovely, so must the tree be♥

Your photo for today is GREAT! Thank you for treating our eyes and hearts with each post.
{Your sidebar photos are wonderful this week too}
I hope your week is sprinkled with miracles*

ps. My sister, Doreen is one of your newest followers! {Hi Doreen!}

A lovely reminder, as always, Koralee! It makes me miss my mummy. But I get to see her for the first time since Christmas next weekend!

Rosie said...

Oh dear one, isn't this a prerequisite to motherhood?...We get such satisfaction from sacrificing for the ones we love...even if it is cherry pie...she obviously LOVES you all.
Thank you for all your prayers..it will be good to have it behind me...xoxo...Rosie

Good morning my friend, I love love your sweet post today. So true.

We are off to a flower mall this morning, pick up some bunches of seeds and some plants for grandma's balcony. Then we will cycle to granny for some Spring tea. It's still early but it sure looks like Mr. Sun will follow us. Do you have Spring tea too, in Canada?

Much love xxxxx and some more xxxxx

I don't care for pie but would struggle with a good cake! I'm with the lady who said 'cut smaller'. Wish I was more generous...!!!
Lovely picture (as always)

Jane said...

So sweet, that is definately my MuM :)love from Jane x x x x x

B said...

Think I'd have to go with the 'smaller pieces' crowd here. When I was little, Mum used to put a Mars Bar in the fridge and when it was hard cut it up into little 'slivers' for 3 of us to share. I couldn't eat a Mars Bar any other way now! Good things, small packages. Hugs, B xxxx

Catherine said...

I've always liked that little quote ~ so true of a mother! I've never baked a pie before ~ just cookies! ;)

Happy Wednesday to you Koralee!

Precious one, I just barely missed your posting as I came over yesterday morning! What a gracious thing to do, to give up what you love....see, you tell it all in a photo, in a suggestion, in a simple way that allows you to post more frequently...I must learn to do that!!! Oh, it is the middle of another crazy week, but we are inching towards our spring break....may you have a lovely, lovely day my sweet bluebird!!! Anita

Vintage Gal said...

Beautiful photos~ Love pie ~ have a happy day! ;-)

Susan said...

I never make just one pie so I've never had that happen! :) I'd like to think I'd say that, but it sounds more like my husband! Actually, he'd say, "I'm not hungry." Then he'd wait and finish whatever the kids didn't! :)
Love your LOVE pic! Love that font too!
Blessings!

Oh that is a hard one because pie is my favorite so I just might have to cut one piece in half to share with hubby because he knows how much I love pie!

Oh, so true. That's why my Mom is a Size 2. And me will, I am not....she said with glee.
You already what I think of this picture.
It needs to be on your sidebar as a standard fixture.

Most precious friend, sister and colleague in the teaching profession! HOW DID YOU DO TODAY? Did the nose behave? Did you make it through with a smile? I bet you did....ahhhhh....we had oodles of standardized testing today, but then we did language arts for the rest of the time...pure magic for me. The kids were good, and we are gonna all make it to the home stretch...I am so glad to know you are on the mend! What bright things do you have in mind for your next post? I can't wait. You are an inspiration dearest heart...Anita

Marilyn said...

My sister sent me this same quote earlier this week. That definitely would spell love in my home because I loooove pie.

A Vintage Chic said...

I so agree, Koralee...Pie is definitely LOVE!

I got the sweetest surprise today when I picked up the newest "Where Women Cook" at the store...such a lovely article and the most sumptuous photos by you, my dear friend--what a treat!

Hoping you're having the most delightful day...

Julie
