Sometimes it is a shock to discover a favorite has passed, I only find out by reading the obits. I'm not blaming anybody, the family has enough on their plate to worry about. But, I do find it a comfort to know.

Just finished supper. DH was going to be so nice & cook tonight. It was awful! Undercooked & fatty paper thin ribeyes with a baked potato. Argg! He's complaining no one ate much but it was everything we could do to choke down what we did eat. Not sure I should say something or just avoid this fight tonight.

Oh, sweetie. At least he tried. DH gets underfoot, I task him with cheese grating and garlic chopping. Then he tells me that I'm in HIS way. I smile sweetly and continue browning/cooking/ saucing. The knives are all on MY side of the kitchen.

We took a friend from church out for lunch and have had a nice, relaxing day.

I had a very quiet day, sleeping in the morning and watching TV in the afternoon then falling over the dog toy basket in the evening (it's okay, the only thing broken was the basket and it came from the dollar store!).
