First the happy news!
My sister, Rebecca, texted me on Monday with fairly HUGE unexpected news.
Their adopted daughter Raelyn had a half-brother born last week!
Tuesday they went and met this little guy!
and of course we are all thrilled!
My Grandma was over the moon when I talked to her,
my Mother of course is excited and already met the little guy
and I can't wait to meet him, God willing, in the future.
We are all hoping the adoption will be a shorter process this time.
Today, a year ago, was Raelyn's "gotcha day" as they say,
the day she was officially adopted.
The second new is not as happy.
Our candle desk man, who I mentioned had fallen,
is still in hospital.
He was supposed to be going to rehab but his
lungs are compromised.
I am quite concerned for his health and recovery.
Asking your prayers...
Granny Marigold, you mentioned using the bowls from this pattern I believe:
I just wanted to say that while I don't have any of these dishes,
they are quite costly, as you can see the big plates are 18.99 per plate!
I have always admired this set!
I first saw it when I was newly married, nearly 7 years ago!
Well, while I am hoping to make Chicken Sate this weekend,
I do appreciate pre-made and frozen meals,
and parchment paper!
The above are fish sticks and I baked them at 425F in our
toaster oven and used parchment paper so that they did not stick
to the metal pan while baking!
I had leftover rice which we reheated with a bit of water
in the microwave... some foodies and health-conscious types/hippie types
don't like microwaves but I am here to say that I do and for some things
they are so convenient!
Well, there's the happy news, the sad news and chatty discussion for tonight!
May God help and have mercy on us all!
