What all does it say on those labels? Content and heating instructions?

Going shopping to spoil my sister rotten.

Hope she likes what I've picked out.All I have to do is pick it all up,have it wrapped and sent off.

She's having difficulties adjusting to life without Mom.So I think a little pampering is in order, things that are just for her and her alone is a nice way of showing her how to get the ball rolling.

@Addie,
Please don't give me ANY advice or comments on how YOU would handle things.Thank you in advance!
I know she will appreciate all your effort on her behalf.

I cleaned out the fridge and rearranged the freezer. I now have enough room between the two for at least three turkeys. It is amazing how much space you can gain when you toss out all those half empty bottles you know you will never finish. No turkey for me though. I don't like it. Only the thigh meat.

I'm resting. Busy cleaning again today (who's idea was it that dust isn't an attractive decoration) and I've earned a sit-down. We have an antique barrister's cabinet in the living room - it has a base and top, plus four storage sections. I took every little thing off of and out of the entire piece, disassembling the unit and polishing up all the wood and glass. Once clean, I reversed the process. Whew, am I glad that the inside is cleaned for another couple of years! Had to take our collection of various beer-drinking vessels off of a smaller, open cabinet. That wasn't quite as bad since there isn't any glass to break and it's a lot smaller. One room down, six more plus a staircase and hallway and 2 1/2 bathrooms to go

My best buddy back home always says the best sleep in between the hours of 10:00 and noon. She's right. I just figure my body is in the eastern time zone but my body clock is in Hawaii. ~~ BTW Munky, you are a gem of a sister. If I had a sister, I would want her to be sweet like you.

Admiring the wonderful bench Daddy made for my dining room. Now I can seat three more people without resorting to steel folding chairs.

Wow, that's beautiful, Princess. Your dad is very talented! And the kitty is a nice touch. Glad it passes his inspection.
