Good Morning Everyone,
Didn't go to church this morning as it's raining heavily. As slow as I have to walk, I would have been drenched by the time I got into church and not interested in slipping and falling either.
Had a wonderful leisurely day yesterday. Found enough dry wood to build myself a nice fire, got my scubbie yarn out, made myself a scrubbie while I watched a couple more episodes of Downton Abbey and enjoyed watching it rain. I have caught up to where I started watching it last year and it's a good thing for my free subscription ends on the 19th. I also, got my pot of pinto beans cooked and have just made myself a pan of cornbread. I have some instant potatoes and plan on whipping some of those up for my lunch.
Today think I will spend some more time working on my cookbook for the children, since I didn't get it finished for last Christmas, my goal now is for this Christmas. They may not get it until I die. LOL
I wanted to share something that really surprised me. I love Sara Lee products and when I had the luncheon I was afraid that I might not have enough of the cheesecake that I made and I purchased one of Sara Lee's at the grocery store, just to be safe. The recipe that I used was one that my SIL who lives in Mississippi had made at Christmas and she said it was the best she had ever eaten and she's originally from New York. She was telling the truth, as last night I hadn't needed to open the store-bought one for the luncheon and I ate a piece of the Sara Lee one. SIL's recipe was better and the Fresh Strawberry Glaze was wonderful. If anyone wants a really good Cheesecake and glaze recipe let me know and I will post it for you in recipes. I will be using this recipe now for any that I make in the future and change the toppings up. Her daughter made it also and used a caramel topping over whole pecans and she said it was not only beautiful, but delicious.
DGFlorida, let me say first how sorry I am to hear about your cat. When we lived in South Dakota we had a neighbor who didn't like animals and there was a lease law that we weren't suppose to let them run loose. As far as he was concerned since they were on his property he would poison them with antifreeze. Like someone else said animals love it and if you made the mistake of letting your animal get loose and they got in his yard they were pretty well gone. Another neighbor called the police to him, but they would do nothing about it, because they animal wasn't suppose to be there in the first place.We had a poodle at the time and we didn't let him go outside at all without a leash around his little neck.
Clem, there was a story last night on a local crime website that made me think of your friend. https://nbc25news.com/news/local/grand- ... 2MGmNFGXeM
Rinty, I can't tell you how sad your post made me. I am so sorry for Tom, you and your DH. This has to be so disheartening for you that you can't get the help for your child that he needs. God help them, you have more on you than you deserve.
Jackie, glad your son and his kitty made it home safely. I know you will enjoy them being there.
Off to enjoy my lunch and watch it rain,rain, rain.
