Random Friday

The house that OS is nearly done building sold this week.  Telling us that they were a nice young couple with a little boy, he was happy since it had only been listed a short time.  

We attended services for one of the Pres' aunts who passed away last week.  She was such a hard worker, living for 90 years and smiled all the time.  We have several yard ornaments that she gave us many, many years ago.  Auntie Francis, I will remember you for your smile and twinkling eyes.  You gave us much...:)

I came across a few more recipes I'd like to add to our Christmas cookie repertoire if time allows.  Two of them were my MIL's which the Pres SAID he would help me with...:)The total list is now up to twenty five varieties.

My sister has her fourth chemo today, so send thoughts and prayers her way...overnight, express, or air mail. Although still keeping the nausea at bay, she was chilly a little bit longer after the last treatment, so he doctor had her come in for blood-work.  Those results will be reviewed tomorrow along with a draw that was done Wednesday before her infusion.

Interesting how our old...ER minds can still learn and absorb words and meanings...things we know nothing about but are willing to learn for those we love.
