BLOG – GIFT DAY 297 :: mixing it up

24 Oct

In keeping with my promise to seek abundance this year, here’s my Abundance Photo of the Day… my Great Aunt Deenie’s mixer.

This week I pulled something amazing from the garden…. drum roll please…

More ZUCCHINI.

Not kidding.
I thought the garden was done, over, dried up, finished. 

It’s still producing. And we haven’t watered it in weeks. We haven’t weeded it since even longer.

So I pulled out the old recipe book and made another triple batch of zucchini bread.  The thing is, this time, I used my Kitchen-Aid mixer — the mixer that was my great aunt’s mixer. 

I don’t even know how old this mixer is… but it works like a charm. It once sat on my mother’s kitchen counter and now it sits on mine.

I had my own Kitchen-Aid mixer once… it was a wedding gift, all high speed, beautiful and brand new.  But I lost it in the divorce, like most of the items I collected in my marriage.

The thing is, the used mixer, the one that has been in my family, means so much more to me now. And maybe that’s what this garden has been trying to tell me, or teach me, through an abundance of zucchini bread.

Some things are meant to stay in the family.
And that’s abundance if you ask me.

More tomorrow.
