A quiet holiday...

Thursday, November 28, 2013

Ron's daughter's mother in law's mother is dying, and Ronnie spent half the day with her and her husband, just visiting and chatting. They're lovely people. It was kind of him. I missed him but he has to work anyway, tonight, and so he would have been sleeping.

I stayed home to cook, instead, and stay with Raud. I put a small turkey in, and baked it slowly. I was missing the stuffing, yesterday. Then I got an idea... I made my usual paleo muffin recipe without the blueberries or sweetness, and added sautéed onions and celery, parsley and sage, some pepper and salt, and put it in the muffin tins to bake. They came out smelling wonderful, and tasting very stuffing-y, with the turkey gravy I made from chia seeds and almond flour. Delicious! Ronnie and Raud even had seconds!

My son called from St. John's, which was awesome! I didn't get to speak with him directly because of my hearing loss, but oh it was lovely to have him on the other end of the line and know that he is doing all right! What a wonderful place to be! He's getting a lot of great experiences that I don't think he could get anywhere else, and I'm so glad that he has this opportunity. I miss him, though.

I decided that, if he stays, I'm going to visit when I lose my first 100 lbs. 60 to go!

    That stuffing sounds lovely Sue, what a creative person you are.

    So sorry to hear about the illness, Ron sounds like a very special person.
    And I'm so glad you got a call from your son, I know how much you miss him. He's given you a great incentive to lose more weight, I hope you reach your goal and can get off on that visit. emoticon

    Take care emoticon
