<p> My sister was making king Ranch chicken casserole, (which i had no idea was a real place and that there were so many varieties to it!) and we were talking about how when we used to first make it and we had to make the tortillas first, stew the chicken, de-bone it, manage to get cheese or make the cheese….just to make dinner! Those are the meals that build character! <p>
We had a hard week here. On Wed. morning I woke up to find out that a good friend of ours had passed away. It was really hard as it seems he took his own life. You start to question everything about your relationship. Was there more you could have done? The sad feeling that overwhelmed me has been incredible to handle. I was very close to his step-daughter growing up and his wife as well (I always had friends that were my mom’s age, all my life!). Tomorrow we are going over to the funeral and I just pray that I know what to say or not to say. Sometimes I am really good at sticking my foot in my mouth!
Let’s just hope this is not one of those times.
I am not sure if I will be taking any pictures as the mom is holdeman mennonite and they do not take pictures, but maybe I will take some of our melting snow now……it got uncommonly warm here and over in WA, they have some horrible issues with it, there are places flooding, so I hope it gets colder again! But i want the roads to be good tomorrow, so wait until after that. F. has had some bad roads to deal with on his bus route and that has not been fun either….<p>
if any of you ever wonder why there is a uncapitalized letter here and there, my shift key does not always work, so if I miss it……that is why!
