Oh, how nice Kay....and what a huge job! Do you expect them to be done painting the house and trim today? I hope the colors are everything you hope they'll be.

Realistically, I expect it will take most of the week Cheryl. The body of the house will be a dark grey with a tint of blue, the trim and porch rails will be pale grey. The front door with the pretty oval lead beveled glass window will be a beautiful high gloss deep red.

That sounds gorgeous! I love the symbolic 'welcoming energy' of a red front door.

My house color is similar to the grey/bluish you chose, except the trim is darker than the house - and my front door is white.

Unlike when I used packaged won ton wrappers to make pot stickers, I'll definitely make pierogies again. Just not until after the holidays. Here are the "before" and "after" pictures. BTW, I made 26 pieces - we have about 10 left.

Looks great, CG! Nice job.

Thanks a lot, Andy! I think the same thing every time you post pictures of your bagels. One of these days I'm going to attack those. Meanwhile, I had fun with the stretchy dough. Who knows, maybe I'll make my own pappardelle?

Kayelle, those sound like lovely color combinations. One big green wreath or spray on the front door and you will look very Christmas-y!

I'll be getting my tree tomorrow - moving a few things around today to make a space for it.
If watching the Peanuts dance doesn't bring a smile to your face, I'm not sure what will! I was just talking to a co-worker the other day about it

Schroeder gets the most recognition for his musical talent, but I'd say that Pigpen can really tear up the bass, not to mention drums!

I know, BC, the Peanuts gang is timeless joy! It's fun seeing my grandchildren enjoy them just as I did when I was a kid. (and still do)

Today - 8 December (in UK) in the year 1980, John Lennon was tragically shot dead.

I have been playing a lot of his records on youtube. Particularly beautiful is this one...

What are you doing?

John Lennon was an icon. What a loss.

Imagine is an anthem.

I just flew a cancer patient home from his treatment at UCLA. The thanks I get as all the reward I need.
