Thank you to all for the best wishes! I ended up coming home early. I left home on a Thursday & back home on a Thursday. Dh was a bit overwhelmed trying to run it all by himself, my sister assured me she would be fine.

They look (and no doubt, taste) wonderful, BC!

It ALL was beautiful! Definitely not what my baked goods look like. LOL

My mother gave up our house when I was in high school. A widow, she couldn't afford the upkeep on that old house. I lived in rentals and was comfortable with that until I met DH. He hated to come to my apartment. He hated being able to hear what was going on in the next apartment and hearing people coming and going outside my door, in the hallways. I don't think he could ever live anywhere but in a single home. We have privacy fences in the back, as he doesn't even want the neighbors to be able to see us on our deck or in the yard. But if he goes before I do, I'm outta here! I don't even want to clean, let alone do repairs or yardwork!!

Just back from the flea market and routine grocery shopping.

This morning at the flea market I picked up a Matfer heavy duty stainless steel mandoline for $4.00.

An amazing buy for an item that I have almost no use for, Aunt Bea loves a bargain!!!

Just did a proper clean of my cooker hob tops (iron framework that sits on the hob plates) i.e. soaking in the bathtub with soda crystals and detergent for hours!

I don't have an electric kettle (just use a small saucepan) so it involved calculating how long I could go without a cup of tea or coffee....oh, just thought, could have used the thermos flask but that would feel like desperate measures!

And the best part is, you're not moving away from DC. You will still be just a click away!

That reminds me, have to tell the cable company to get us set up in Wyoming. A little closer to the date we move of course. I may be offline for about a week while we get settled.
