I want to start off with this picture and article I saw. It really captures your heart, I think.
Her family stopped at a local Bob Evans restaurant this week, and a man at a nearby table looked familiar -- the flowing white beard, red suspenders and glasses. So Gracie Lynn approached.
“She pulled up the chair and they just started having a conversation like they knew each other for years,” her mother, Lindsey Wilson, told the television station WFIE.
Lindsey Wilson snapped a photo of the pair talking, a special encounter for the toddler, a moment with Santa.
Gracie Lynn only asked for one thing for Christmas this year -- her baby brother James, who is supposed to be born in a few weeks.
I had planned on posting about how blah I feel this morning, not sure why I felt that way but, I did. When I saw the above article, it made me smile and stare at it for awhile as thoughts ran through my mind. There are so many bad things happening in this world and it affects us on a daily basis whether in another country or here at home and whether we admit it or not, it does affect us emotionally. sometimes these emotions stay with us a short time and in some instances a very long time.
When I see a photo like the one above, I wonder if maybe we should push some things out of our thoughts and see what that 3 year old sees. Sometimes, I wish I could be that 3 year old with the only worry is, will I get my Christmas wish? Something to think about, EH?
Anyway, not much going on, it's Friday and this morning I woke up to a frosty +14, I love it.
Seeing the past week has been in the 20' to 30's, yuck!
I have been pretty lazy in getting my firewood as you all know and I don't see me getting much of it, as it is frozen to the ground and there is so much frost attached, it dulls my chain. So, I cheated this year and ordered 2 cords of wood, all birch and for the price, well worth it. $440 for 2 cords.
I ordered it in rounds because, I didn't want to get to lazy and I will be busy splitting these big boys. This weekend I will stack them to make room.
Anyway, a few days ago, I went to town to do some shopping and saw these in the freezer. They were $2.00 each and thought I would try them. They weren't bad but, not enough to curb my hunger.
What was interesting was the containers in side. The main ingredients are in a perforated bowl which sat in a solid bowl which contained the sauce.
So, I got to thinking that I might be able to reuse these. Like cook up some meals ahead of time and separate the keep the sauce separate from the main ingredients so it doesn't become mushy and use these in the microwave and it will cut down on washing the dishes and pans. Worth the try.
Using my computer
OK, that's enough for now, gonna try to get something done. Take care
