Baking Season

For many, the transition to the Fall and Winter holidays means it is the time of year for baking.  I'm definitely in that category myself.  Mom bakes through out the year and Lyn will often help her, especially if they're making cookies.  I can't remember a time when Mom didn't have cookies, muffins or some sort of bread in the freezer, ready to pull out at a moment's notice.

As Lyn was heading for bed on Tuesday, she made a baking request.  "The next time you make banana bread, can you use pumpkin?  There's still one bag of pumpkin in the freezer."

Mom promised they will bake pumpkin bread and use the frozen pumpkin.  That reminds me that I've got frozen pumpkin in the freezer and a 40lb pumpkin on my step to cook down.  Perhaps a custard needs to be made in my house too.


  1. Dementia is commonly a disease of older people aged 65 and older but adults can develop it too anytime in their lives due to several reasons. Having a family history of dementia can be one. People with drinking habits, vitamin B deficiency or a history of chronic hypertension are at risk too. As explained earlier, it progresses slowly and symptoms varies which makes it difficult to diagnose at early stage. However, there is no proper screening tests for it yet, but a small assessment test has been designed to check the mental health of a patient called The Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE). The test consists of questions to evaluate the mental state of the patient. The only way you can treat a dementia patient with is CARE. They are not different but quite similar to us however have a different way of taking things in! Instead, love and care is only the medicine that can calm dementia parents for they are more sensitive and naïve.
