Your pear cake sounds delicious. Maybe once I get this kitchen completed I'll be able to make it.
You asked me how I was hanging in there with the redo. Pretty good! Thank goodness we are going to the deer lease this weekend where we have a duplex out there. At least there won't be any dust and paint fumes. And I can cook. We are actually getting tired of eating out. (Never thought that could happen! lol)
Enjoying your pictures!
Have a great weekend.
