This and That
Our week began in a sad way when we received a call early this morning that my DH's oldest brother died rather suddenly. He would have turned 81 on the 24th of this month. And we are reminded again that " The rope that tethers life to eternity frays when we least expect it"
On a brighter note, our two trees are up and the lights have once again been painstakingly put on yet look like we just threw them on. I know there's a trick to getting them to look right but we have never found it. Nevertheless in due time I will cover as much of the trees as I can with ornaments and garland and we won't notice. I knew a woman who used to shove her decorated tree in a closet after Christmas and the next year just get it out again. That may have been just a little extreme.
I just popped a casserole of stew in the oven for our supper. I always feel that if I have the oven on I should make more than one thing. But I don't feel inspired to make anything else. On the weekend I tried a recipe for a lemon square that I found on the Pioneer Woman's blog. It turned out okay but I don't think I'll make it again. I have so many different recipes for lemon squares that I really don't need another one.
Have a great week. I know many of you will be busy getting ready for Thanksgiving.
Thanks for visiting,
