Grateful Post: Aw...Mondays and A Rainy Day Wednesday and Apple Fritter Bread

Grateful for warmth inside my home. This tree sits in my neighbor's front yard across the street from me. The photo does not do the golden leaves justice. Somedays are dark, dreary and rainy day. Others are hot and sunny just like summer.
Rainy days make me want to bake. Here is the yummy loaf of Apple Fritter Bread. A friend shared this and it is delicious. So warm and filled with Granny Smith apples and brown sugar and cinnamon. A few days ago I had some overly ripe bananas. I have been baking banana bread since I was a teen. All three loaves failed! They did not bake through. I was so sad. I am not sure what happened because the oven bakes fine every time and this was such a fluke.
My Tea Mug Exchange lady Cheryl  sent me a beautiful mug with this verse. I have been  drinking some Mint Lemon Verbena tea with honey and lemon slices in my new cup. It is so good.  I am so happy I joined the tea cup/tea mug exchange.

The very best feline friend I knew was Boots and looked very similar to this fellow. I don't understand superstitions especially for beautiful black cats.

This feline must be a follower of the Trekkies! I love this because it brings a big smile. Now stop by Sandee's and join the Aw...Mondays crowd with your favorite shares.

This cup is sweetness. Perhaps they were having a Alice in Wonderland Tea Party.  I thought maybe Jeanne and the folks at Blue Monday would enjoy this blue.
Do you have a favorite tea cup? A favorite color? I love them all but this blue tea cup and matching teapot is really stunning. Lots of beautiful pieces to add to a collection.

I was thinking of my banana bread fail and this popped up! Leave it to Maxine to add things up!

Love perfectly today. Tea and honey go together so beautifully. I like to purchase locally produced honey as well as other produce and products.
This is my favorite honey, raw and unfiltered.
I hope you have a wonderful day and great week as well.

Wish I had been there to have a big, hot slice of the bread and coffee. You can have your tea,but love coffee with something sweet.

I love the looks of the apple fritter bread. I will check Pinterest for a recipe. I also like to bake on rainy days. Sometimes banana bread doesn't cook all the way thriugh in my oven either. The teacup and pitcher are so pretty. And Maxine is right. Love it!

Your apple fritter bread looks delicious, and I bet it would be great with a lovely cup of tea! I love the Scriptures and the quotes, and the images are fantastic! Thank you so much for sharing. :)

Hi Anne, thank you for such a lovely comment about our Logan. Our daughter, Logan's mom, came back to NC with us for a week. It is my birthday week. Such a lovely time we are having. Funny, Logan just called his mom from college a few minutes ago and said he fell asleep in the shower. HA!, poor thing, I am sure he spends a lot of late nights studying.

Love the black cat quote and feel bad about your banana bread. We just made some when we were in FL this past week and it turned out good. Maybe a tad overbaked. I love apple fritters and I am sure the bread would be just as good. The blue teapot and teacup are very sweet. I like tea iced or hot. No sugar though. Smile. Your scriptures are always welcome on a cup or anywhere.
Have a wonderful week my sweet friend.
Hugs, Jeanne

So sorry your banana bread did not come out so good. Practice makes perfect though. (at least that's what I've been told)

I love the pictures of the black cats. I think black cats are simply beautiful. One of our house cats is all black. The other is white and apricot.

Today we're having a regular New England weather day. It started out gray and wet, then the rains poured for a while, then the sun came out and made everything look beautiful. And, now it is just gray outside. What can I say? You never know what the weather will do here.

Now I'm off to find some fun mischief to get into. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.
