My sister used to make her sons small jeans into shoulder bags and large mens jeans into shopping/beach bags.

I'm always in awe of the possibilities that people can see in recycling everyday items.

All I see is old jeans!

That's sweet of you Macgyver!

I'm going to spend the better part of what's left of this afternoon digging through our closet and dresser drawers doing a purge. There are items of clothing we just don't wear that I'm sure can be put to use by someone else. Plus we're supposed to get a break from this cold at the end of the week, so I figure a ride to drop these things off at Salvation Army can be coupled with a trip to one of the not-so-near bread bakers.

Going to drop off the taxes, buy a DVD (Last Vegas), start sorting through t-shirt to make into a quilt. Dunno what else, I guess I better finish off the chapter I've been studying and take the test.

what a perfectly lovely way to express your appreciation to a caring hospital staff, mac! the workers who took care of you, like many heroes, probably see themselves as doing nothing more than performing their assigned work duties. but we know better, don't we? we know the gift you carried away from baylor hospital is one that cannot be measured in any conventional or tangible way...very like the sweet gifts of gratitude you carried back in there today....

PF, Dr. Fanhauser's suggestions regarding how to make the ricotta from the whey are excellent. I love using the ricotta from the mozzarella in stuffed shells. Mmmmmmm.

Thanks for noticing that Kathleen. I followed someone else's recipe and was not happy with the results. I will do his recipe the next time.

We're just finishing up some sugar cookies Mamma made before she left. Then Carl is leaving, taking Laki with him to drop her off at her home.

Gwen is staying and we'll watch TV or play cards. Or both.

With love,
~Cat

I'm sitting here wondering how much it would cost to bring in enough sand to fill the floor of my office, a few Areca palms and a couple of cases of cheap Mexican beer. Definitely wouldn't be as expensive as heading back south for the winter. I'm so over this cold it's not even funny. I just want to curl up in a ball and hide for the next three months.
