hi Reed, I found the recipe on the kitchen counter. made the rolls and they are rising now, they look so cute, little knots. so much fun to make them. The ladies at the guild like everyone to make stuff homemade. somehow I think the hospitality committee rigged it so everyone with a B last name would bring bread. my 2 other friends who bake also have B last names. I also had to scramble to make a quilt block for the out going president. she was only pres one year. it's a hard job.
not the social worker called from Goodwin House and we are going to have to get all the sttuff out of mother's apartment in approx 30 days, no exceptions. she's been there 17 years. i really don't know how I'm going to do that. my brother has a bad back and cannot lift over 5 pounds. another day another worry.
how's Russ doing, a little better each day. poor guy! what's the story on the stove. love ya, hugs! bg 93 yea.
oh Reed, thank you, the little pin came yesterday, yes, may it bring some luck. now that Ed is 60 I've completely lost hope. still I pray, I guess it is possible. still rather ill, gosh it's been almost a month. I'm looking for a recipe for rolls and I can't find it. by 208. guess I'm changing out today. wish I felt better.
Hey there Reed!! Poor Russ...must feel odd covered in bandages!! Is it causing him any pain? There is SO MUCH going on here that I nearly made a mistake with dates!! I thought The Catholic Women's League pot luck dinner was today...bought my contribution...wrapped my gift to my Secret Pal...had some canned goods for the collection to the food bank....had my silverware and festive dishes on the counter, ready to go (we're instructed to bring our own dishes)! I called the lady I was suppose to pick up...just to confirm, only to find out that it's for NEXT Tuesday! (feeling rather foolish lol). Tomorrow night , Wednesday, is my turn to teach a Rite of Christian Initiation for Children class at our church. Topic...Advent. I'm doing a class in January also ( all the teachers take turns)...we all get to do a Commandment in January...2 or 3 per night. Guess what mine is...the 9th...You Shall Not Covet Your Neighbour's Wife....that should be a hoot!! The kids...all 19 of them range in age from 7 to 13!!! This Thursday and Friday....the dreaded parent teacher interviews....not as nerve wrecking as doing the report cards...but nevertheless!! I still have to write out my opening comments! You'll laugh...report cards went home with the kids on Monday (yesterday), and I overheard one gr 4 say to the other "My teacher did sort of ok"....so I corrected him and said..."You mean YOU did sort of ok". Man!! Ya...don't study...and it's OUR fault!!
Had pork chops tonight...haven't had THAT in a long while...with potatoes and beets! Sorry to hear about the run around with your stove....it's always something isn't it!!! Was VERY warm here today... 60F, with rain and lightning in the afternoon. Never you mind...we'll have it freezing before you know it lol!!
Take care my friend!! All the best with tomorrow's TOPS!
luv and baskets of hugs....linda
That is a cute name Marie gave-Reedsville-made me smile.Kathy is good coming up with good ones too...Hope Russ is better this morn..and the stove-maybe just take it and have them take off the price for being late-wonder it they would do that.Otherwise have to start over again..Have a good day Gator ..
Reed, what a nightmare, Russ that is. oh dear, poor guy. give him a little hug from me. wonder what happened to delay the stove. bg 131, thank God the cat is going home today. I've had enough and we are both allergic to him. Gueuss what I've been asked to make for the guild Christmas party? those with last names A-B bring bread or rolls. haha. more hugs for you pops, love ya.
Thank You Reed for the kind BD wishes and thoughts. I have a very nice day. Beautiful gifts and dinner. I wish you well and thank you for your kindness and continued friendship even though I am not such a good "TuD Member" lately. Love to you sweet man. xoxo
hi Reed, yes, how did the pot roast come out. Yesterday was ed's birthday, the big six-oh. he did not want any fuss. we were going to go out and get some Mexican food (funny the closest restaurant with the best food is Mexican) but then he changes his mind and got a pizza. We hardly EVER have pizza because I have a hard time bolusing correctly for it, but he felt it was a big treat. I felt kinda bad not doing much for his birthday, so this week I'm going to make his absolute favorite meal, moussaka. it's a Greek casserole with lamb and eggplant.
I'm still rather ill and now my nose is going like a fire hose. I'm going to make some holiday goodies this week and freeze. It is going to be very warm this week, the snow all gone. hope your new stove gets in without incident. bg 168
Hi Reed, Monday Eve already. How is the new stove, did you get one in yet? You will have to tell me all about it. I hope you enjoy using a new one. That is really awful about your online shopping experience turning out to be so stressful. I am so sorry you had to go through that mess. You must have been seriously mad. Did you get everything straightened out for sure? I am slowly getting out my decorations for Christmas. The big event of the day for me was hanging the wreath and putting out a red door mat. Well, at least when people go by the door it will look like I have decorated. Some people in the neighborhood have some pretty lights up already. They look so cheerful and pretty. Tomorrow is my first full week back at work. I have been cleaning my clothes today and got out winter clothes, and now find out it will be in the 60s this week! I love snow and am hoping for cold, and to get some this year. When I get to work tomorrow I will put away all my Autumn stuff and get my office Christmas decorations put up for the clients. I went to the hair salon yesterday for a holiday haircut, and they had this stuff I bought called "Sugar Dust," It is supposed to give your hair some body. It comes in a cute little container and works well, and smells lovely. I think I will get a bunch of them for stocking stuffers for my friends. My hairstylist is having a baby in March and has a four year old named Max. She found something at Hallmark called a "shelf elf," It is an elf statue that is supposed to sit around the house before Christmas and report back to Santa how the kid has been acting. I guess you move it every night, and the kid looks for it, and sometimes the elf brings notes from Santa to tell the kid how he is behaving. I was thinking that would traumatize me if I was a kid! It would creep me out to have a Santa Spy reporting my behavior. I guess Max was being a bit bad one night, and he hid the elf behind the TV so the elf wouldn't see him getting in trouble! I think I should get one for work to keep my boss in line! Well, I hope you have a nice week. I hope everything comes out well for Russ with his nose. I will be thinking of him Lots.
Oh Reed you are so funny, about the photo albums. When I was still working I rode a commuter bus that usually had the same people on it. One lady always sat by me and if she wan't crying over some man who had dumped her, she had pictures, each with a 10 minute story. I was always itching too work on my knitting or read, and it got to be very annoying. Then she took a fancy to a another man who rode with us and soon was sitting next to him every day. I guess they had a relationship for a bit, but broke up so she was once again sitting beside me, now crying about him. Oh the drama. 37 degrees here. Tomorrow when I go to the doc it will be my first day out in a month. Yest afternoon I didn't feel too bad and got some straightening done, but was exhausted after just vacuuming the living room. Looks nice, though. Hope the stove installation goes well and the crew doesn't leave a big mess.
Have a good week ahead. Will keep Russ in my thoughts.
