Love Token Pies

Ps.......first blog of today was movie centered
The second is a brief "emotionally based" one.

Chris returns home from Canada today
He's been away since the weekend
Now it may surprise you when I say that I am not a heart warming emotional sort of old queen in practice 
But I am looking forward in having him home.
I am not the sort to wave a white handkerchief from the garden gate
I am not the sort to gush emotional platitudes over the phone either
But I am the sort to lovingly bake you two types of pie
For when you return home from distant shores.

  9. So a lace hanky would be out of the question, as would be a plain coloured one pulled from the left or right pocket.

  16. I am not an emotional gusher either, but I would probably have a beaming smile on my face when my partner walked in through the door, and I suspect, John, that you, too, have an insy winsy bit of a smile playing around the edges of your mouth when you next see your partner!

  17. And I bet Chris is the type to understand exactly what you mean by them.

    I made one myself a week ago from some excellent peaches, the neighbors liked it.

  29. Nothing says lovin'
    Like something from the oven

    Old Pillsbury commercial, I believe, but it's even more true when it's homemade! We aren't the gushy types either. Pie says it all.

      He loved the meat pie.....
      Was too tired to cope the apple

  35. True love. Huge smiles.
    And I hope he is now sufficiently restored to have the apple pie as well.

    ReplyDelete
  36. That's really sweet. I'd be very chuffed to come home and find two tasty-looking pies awaiting me! Mind you, I AM the emotional type and my reunions are always marked by hugs and kisses and sweet nothings.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Those are beautiful pies. What time shall I arrive? I've been away in the U.S.

    Love,
