Trying to get a post written for my blog but my mind just isn't cooperating. I am supposed to be resting as we are going to a tea tomorrow for a young couple who got married in Ontario and he is from here so they are having the tea to allow people who couldn't go to the wedding to celebrate with them. I am very much looking forward to it so am trying to do as I am told

But I really feel like trying out a recipe for a gluten/dairy/sugar-free pumpkin maple cake. The maple syrup gives the sweetness in the cake AND the frosting.

Well, I do relax when I bake...

Just got back from the John Prine concert! What fun! He didn't sing "Dear Abbie", but he did sing "You May See Me Tonight With an Illegal Smile". Loved it!

We received a free three month membership to BJs (Costco-type place on the East Coast) and went there this afternoon to check it out.

Managed to spend less than $100. Picked up a tray of very meaty beef shanks that are destined to become part of beef barley soup and who knows what else. Also a few other odds and ends.

Andy, when BJ's first came to town, I was working as a Temp. I usually only do office work. But they asked me if I would be interested in doing some weekend work. "Sure, why not. I can always use the extra money." Off to BJ.s in Medford the next day. Stacking the shelves. They gave me a knife to open the boxes. Uh Oh! After about six hours of working on a Saturday, and with the promise of more work on Sunday at time and a half pay, I was tired and not paying attention. I sliced all four fingers wide open. There goes my Sunday paycheck. But I still had one good hand, so I showed up on Sunday as if nothing was out of the ordinary. They gave a knife again. All I had to do was slice the boxes for my partner. After about four hours, using my bad hand started to take its toll. All of a sudden I burst into tears and sobs. My hand started to hurt real bad. BJ's thanked me for my help, sent me home in a cab. They even gave me a year's free membership. (I think that was so I wouldn't sue.) Oh well, at least I got some Sunday pay in.
