Recipes, memories and random thoughts from my kitchen

Wednesdays are always busy days for me, with quite a bit of my day spent out of the house. But I did find time to do a bit of embroidery this morning and some sewing as well, and did manage to finish half of a homemade gift for a friend. The other half of it is coming along well and should easily be finished tomorrow morning. I fit in a tiny bit of sewing this afternoon after getting home, but not much. I hope to make another gift like it for the person whose name I drew in our Sunday School gift exchange, which will take place on Sunday. We will see!
In other Christmasy news, I sent out several Christmas cards this morning and got a few more ready to send out tomorrow. And at church tonight, a friend gave me a sweet Christmas decoration she had found at a thrift store. I love it when friends or family give me items for my collections. From then on, whenever I see those items, they remind me of the friends who created those items or purchased them for me. Later this week, I would love to do a post about some of the tree ornaments that remind me of particular people. From thinking of those friends it is but a short step to praying for them!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
