, so sorry about your friend. There were a couple of teachers I knew who developed Alzheimer's Disease shortly after retiring. It was so sad to see them. One in particular, whom I worked with, was happy to see me but I knew she didn't know who I was. She was holding on to her husband's hand like a little girl. It's such a horrible disease for everyone involved with the individual. Oh, yes, what a day to collect money in front of a beer store. I'll bet your daughter got a good haul today.
, I think that tomato tart would be fine in a phyllo pastry case. You would have to use a little oil or butter between the layers to keep it crisp or I have also read about spraying butter flavoured pan spray between the layers. Don't know how that would be. But with the phyllo you can keep the layers to a minimum and still have a tasty treat. Any cheese should work nicely, too. Rie mentioned making individual tarts and that would work well with the phyllo pastry as well. The pieces of pastry sticking out over the tart pans would get all golden and crispy. Oh my, now I want to make it again. Haha. How wonderful you'll have your DGD with you for at least a few hours.
Oh, my, Rosey
, so glad you got that needle out of your foot. I'm always afraid of doing that. I have stepped on needles but never drove them all the way in or broken them off. I just about always wear slippers or shoes as I have "delicate" feet. BTW, I just love that picture of Steve applying the nail polish to your toenails. How sweet!
You know Donna
, that turkey meat loaf mixture just about put me off my food. Who makes up these recipes, anyway? Any type of slaw should definitely be a side dish. But, like you, I'd eat it because I paid for the ingredients, and the starving children, etc, and DH will eat anything even if he doesn't like it. He won't have seconds, though.
So glad you didn't have to resort to wrist slitting today. We'd have to send a posse after you. I cleaned out my bathroom sink drain a few weeks ago because it wasn't draining well. DH had said he'd look into it but I got tired of waiting. Oh, the gunk I pulled out of that.
, this seems to be a weird winter in many areas. We have lots of snow now but it seemed to be later this year. You'll have to sell those boots.
. This is the place for you indeed! Jump in and start chatting.
, sometimes a body just needs a bit of extra sleep. Every now and then I get so tired I hit the bed right after supper. DH thinks something is drastically wrong as I'm usually a night owl.
, tomatoes tartlettes would be splendid for sure! That cheesecake sounds so good. One of my favourites and it likes me too. Sticks closer than a brother.
, glad you found your stuffing bowl. I take showers more often than baths but I do like a bath every now and then. Your mother literally cut out smoking. Were you still at home when she did?
, you didn't offend me one bit talking about the phone. I don't think you could offend anyone. I understood what you were saying. My sister usually tells me she's falling asleep on the phone and we'd better say our good byes. I hope your back doesn't get sore or tired sitting on those chairs. Hopefully, they'll break now and then and let you all stretch.
, hope you had a lovely, restful Sunday. I guess you'll be ready to go at it again tomorrow.
, sounds like your company will have a nice time visiting with you. Looking forward to pictures.
, don't worry about not doing personals. That will eventually happen as you get to know us better. Not everyone has time or even the desire to do them so what you're doing is just fine. Congratulations on fitting into the pants even if they are a tight fit yet. Give them a few more weeks. The pants will just have to take the place of your tape measure until you find it.
I had a very nice weekend. DS and DIL were suppose to come and stay overnight but we ended up with some nasty weather on Saturday so they stayed home. We were all going bowling with our church on Saturday night so they were going to stay so they wouldn't have to drive home late at night. They seem to get worse weather than we do even though they are only about 90 kilometres away from us. DH and I rarely go out at night, especially in the winter but we ventured out Saturday night as the snow was only lightly falling. We had a great time bowling. Haven't done that in several years. I got a higher score than DH the first game (hahahahahaha) but by the second game my arm was getting tired and he made great strides in getting his ego back where it was before we played. After bowling we dropped in on friends for about an hour and headed home. Today the weather was clear and cold so we decided to drive to DS's and do some shopping at the same time. We had lots of left overs so I took them there and we had dinner. They have a Wii and DH said he'd like to play bowling. He bowled one game by himself and then we went against each other. May I announce that I won 2 out of 3 games. It was a friendly enough competition. Then I tried the boxing. I knocked out that poor little fellow on the Wii several times and won the bout. Following my blaze of glory we said good bye and headed home.
We're going to paint our kitchen cupboards. They are birch cabinets from the early 1980s and in good shape but look dated so they need a face lift. I'm going to do them in an antique white, replace the hinges and handles, replace the counter-tops and hopefully the sink and lay new flooring. I say I but it will be DH doing most of the hard labour as soon as I can get him all enthused about this renovation. I would gladly move out while this was being done but alas I will be there as his Girl Friday. I was talking to one of the sales persons at Kent (like Home Depot) who had done the same thing to his cabinets and he said they turned out really nice. He even had the same colour paint. I'd love to lay cork flooring but it's kind of pricey but I'm going to see how much it would cost for the kitchen as it's not a large area. I don't want to lay ceramic or stone tile because of my "delicate" feet. I spend a lot of time in that kitchen. Now, if I could only find some way to make that kitchen bigger.....
I'm not posting anything for Saturday as it's my treat day. I didn't even get on the bike. I ate light today to counteract some of yesterday's indulgences (and I enjoyed every one of them). So for today here are my eats and exercise.
Breakfast: 1/2 a very large tangelo
Dinner: 1 medium piece veggie roast, 1/3 cup mashed potatoes, ff gravy, turnip, carrots & peas, cabbage, sweet onion casserole, 1/2 cup apple juice, 1 oatmeal cookie, 5 dark chocolate covered cranberries
Supper: 1 apple
Exercise: 14.07 km on exercise bike, 51 minutes
See you all tomorrow.
