all for your prayers for my niece Dee! I spoke with my sis early this morning. She was on her way to the hospital. I don’t have an update yet.
I know that I am not alone in this but it is so sad living so far away from my sister and her family. 500 miles and I think of that old Bobby Bare song ‘500 Miles Away From Home.’ I haven’t seen my sister or any of her family since September 2010. I have had one thing after another health wise for me and I have been in the hospital several times. My sis has had 3 major surgeries and the time hasn’t been right for us to get together. I have been hoping that would change this coming spring. My brother lives close to St Louis and my son almost 200 miles away. Thankfully my daughter and son in law are close by. I would love for us all to get together for a family reunion. That is #1 on my ‘bucket list.’
I missed a day on the countdown till Spring. It stands now at 40 days. The temp has risen to 14 degrees right now and we are to get an inch or two of snow today. Back down to below zero temps Sunday and Monday night. It will be below zero on Tuesday morning when I have my appt to get my hair cut. I hope that my car will start and the streets are clear enough for me to get there.
Needless to say I am stressed today. When I am stressed I bake. When I bake I eat. I am going to bake a pineapple upside down cake which just happens to be my favorite cake. Not using a special recipe, just a yellow cake mix and the juice from the pineapple slices as the liquid.
I tried Nellie’s http://berriesandmore.blogspot.com/ potato soup recipe yesterday and I have some left over. It is very good, thanks Nellie. I also bought 3 chicken tenders yesterday so I have a couple of them left.
I had my report from the lab on Monday and all was well there. Thank you God!
Have a peaceful weekend. Stay safe and be happy!!
