I will pop in every once in a while. We are in Yreka, CA for Elks ritual competition until tomorrow. I am going to start where I left off in reading the posts and will comment as I go along. I will get caught up one of these days, LOL! Happy Anniversary, Xmas!

As you know, I had surgery this past week (Monday) and I am at home recovering; things are going good and I hope to be fully back on my feet within a week or two. On tuesday, My son left for the Air Force (bootcamp); he called yesterday and said everything was fine and gave us his mailing address.

We also got a call from my brother and informing us that my father was missing, the police found him unresponsive, in his car, up in Pennsylvania. They believe now that he had a stroke and got confused and drove to PA???. he is in the hospital, going thru tests and they still don't know the full extent of things.

And in the mix of everything, we are in the beginning stages of moving...

Now, when I read some of the posts here and see sometimes that some of you are having some heck of a time with everything that is happening to you all at once, I think to myself, "wow, that's awlful, and I feel so bad for them..." Now look at me, good Lord, it's almost like what possibly could go wrong is happening all at once, (I sure picked a good time to quit drinking...lol)

Well, that's my boo-hoo-hooing for the day, I feel all better now, I surelly hope that your week is alot better than mine has been. Hey, It's the weekend, It's time for some grilling and chilling.....
I'm so sorry to hear of everything you guys are going through. I will keep praying for you.

I think I know the cake on Pinterest you are talking about. It does look yummy!

That sounds awfully good (except maybe the cauliflower)!

This is one of those rare weekends when neither of us has to work ... a big blessing, considering the kind of workweek we both had this week. Looking forward to some "sofa time." I slept late this morning, but I'm ready for a nap already. I've been busy with household stuff since breakfast. Next up: we figure out what we're going to do for lunch.
