The Sound of Music…And My New Piano

“Music is a form of prayer, uniting people everywhere.”

Zen Insprations

Hello, sweet friends…

My new piano

I hope you are doing well…


This summer marked a few benchmarks…6 years since our move from California…a surprise trip celebrating my sister’s birthday…the garden tour…

And…

my (new to me) piano.

The anticipation of this beautiful instrument took on a life of it’s own… days were spent arranging, rearranging & creating space in our living room…obsessive thoughts of how everything would look afterwards.

Not to mention the excitement of getting to a time in life where I was able to choose a piano of my own. I have written several posts about the journey of pianos in my life…each have told a story…however, what I’m most grateful for is the gift which music has played.

Getting acquainted with this new friend has been a joy…and touches a deeper part of my soul…

which has now given Home a wonderful and different rhythm.

WHAT’S COOKING

Peach Cobbler

Another benchmark I forgot to mention were the peaches harvested from our peach tree. It is a special tree that was planted last year in memory of our beloved pet Cami…the peaches are so sweet just like her. With that being said I can’t think of a better way to end a summertime meal than with a sweet & delicious peach cobbler.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup unsalted butter 
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour  
  • 2 cups sugar, divided 
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder 
  • Pinch of salt 
  • 1 cup milk 
  • 4 cups fresh peach slices 
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice  
  • Ground cinnamon or nutmeg

Directions

  • Melt butter in a 13- x 9-inch baking dish.

  • Combine flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt; add milk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter over butter (do not stir).
  • Bring remaining 1 cup sugar, peach slices, and lemon juice to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly; pour over batter (do not stir). Sprinkle with cinnamon, if desired.

  • Bake at 375° for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. Serve cobbler warm or cool.

Happy Labor Day weekend!

    2nd comment. I read all of this and Bill was still sleeping, so I couldn’t play your video! So I did now, and you answered my silent question if and when they tune it for you! And then you played like an ANGEL!!!!! I could see how very emotional you were and I know you are pinching yourself that it’s really yours!!!!! Enjoy my friend! PS my favorite movie is the The Sound Of Music!
