I just finished playing with dough again. That's two weeks in a row

You could say I was a bit choked up. She has a wonderful voice. Here is a video of her singing it that day:


What I appreciated best was she sang it the way it was written. No trills, no jazz riffs, just the notes. You know, the way it should be if they want people to sing along?
That was absolutely beautiful. She really does have quite a mature sound. And I like the simple rendition, too. The song is challenging enough on its own; it doesn't need embellishment.

Is it expensive over there?
I would love it if you would post some of your recipes. My MIL is of German descent and made rouladen and sauerbraten regularly. I don't know why I've never made them.

Do you have recipes for using up leftovers? If I recall correctly, these are fairly large roasts and there's only two of us.

I think they were $2.00 each. About 1.35. It's hard to make things from scratch over here as some ingredients just aren't available. And if you can find them they are usually very expensive or just don't taste the same.

Just finished digging out from the storm. Having a third cup of coffee and planning dinner.

Pac, I'm sorry to hear that you have to keep digging out, but I am jealous that we didn't get a big snow. I love snow around the holidays. But then I am not the one who has to clean the driveway......

I am presently watching water come through my ceiling. I contacted the maintenance man and we can't find where the leak is coming from. I had to move my TV. So I had to call the main number for maintenance weekend emergency. So what do they do? Call the maintenance man on site. Do they think I am so stupid that I wouldn't have contacted him first? I tell you I am surrounded by idiots!

All kidding aside, keeping you in my prayers, adding Shrek and the family as company. Before you know it *blink* and it will be over.
I'll have to tell the Doctor that...it'll make him laugh.

A few of the nurses have said they will cook for us while I'm recovering, Shrek will have it easy. I also have a couple willing to kidnap me when I'm up to it and haul me out to lunch.

Thank you for the prayers, much appreciated.

My grandkids adopted grandmother had severe diabetes and the first surgery was to have her toes amputated. Her daughter got a Barbie doll and cut her toes off and placed her on a "toe" truck. The doctor cracked up along with her mother. She did the same thing when it came time to have her let amputated minus the toe truck. Barbie was missing one leg up to the knee.
