1. Time for blogging. I wish I could post every day, but anytime that I can post is good. I was able to post last Friday, then Tuesday and yesterday. I don't take this time for granted because I don't always find it.
2. Having our younger friends over for a meal -- we made chicken pot pie and served with cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes -- and Bible study on Sunday evening. Always a blessing. We were doing a review of one section of the study, and even though some had forgotten to bring their study books, we could still review what we had learned.
3. Completing a project I'd been working on. No photos -- the recipient reads my blog.
4. A lovely phone chat with my daughter and granddaughter on Tuesday, not to mention my dear friend Jennifer.
I learned that granddaughter Emily (11) had earned some amazing prize ribbons at the Elko County Fair for her strawberry rhubarb pie. She used her other Gramma's pie crust recipe and my filling recipe, so it's fun to think her grandmothers had a part in her win. Hopefully I'll have photos and more details to share later on. Below you see Emily (at left) tutoring cousin Julia in making a pie crust, last fall.
