Cranberry Nut Quick Bread

I made some more of the Cranberry Nut Quick Bread today. It is SO delicious!

There is just something so satisfying about sitting down to enjoy something you've made for yourself. (Or even something the bread machine has made for you!)
I hope you've tried making some of this bread. It is SO good!

Looking outside, I saw a very small mouse scurrying all around in the old wheelbarrow outside my sewing room window. There is a suet bird feeder hanging above the window, and as the birds help themselves - some of the bird seed and suet falls into the wheelbarrow below. I am using this old rusty wheelbarrow as a planter of sorts. This is the first time I've seen a mouse there, though I have noticed that the wrens really appreciate the goodies they find there! This is not a good picture at all. The screen distorts everything and the mouse itself was so small it was hard to see anyway. All I could think of was Beatrix Potter and her beautiful drawings of mice and other small creatures. I've loved her stories for as long as I've known about them. I DON'T like mice and I really don't want to see any in my vicinity, but just for that few moments, it was nice to suspend reality and just enjoy watching that little mouse in its quest for food.

And Chloe said, "What? I didn't see anything."
Have a great day!
Hugs and kisses,

Elaine, I can almost smell your bread...now I have to give it a try. There is nothing as good as something you made yourself.

The bread looks delicious but I don't think I'd like that mouse (cute as he is)!

The cranberry bread looks so pretty! I also love Beatrice Potter. Mice are something I don't want around either....we have so many different kinds living in our woods. The only reason I know this is because I have a kitty cat that leaves them laying on the doorstep for me. I must have done something really good for her one day because the next morning there were 3 mice laid out in a row on the doorstep! Chloe is still a sweetheart! blessings,Kathleen
