I rarely offer tips on housekeeping because I put it off until company is coming. Since Heard and JJ are coming this week I spent the day cleaning and stashing clutter in the oven which is on the blink.. It might as well be good for something.
At age 68, I think I have finally fallen in love. While trying to motivate myself to get started on my holiday cooking, I made a discovery which is pure genious.in my limited book of brilliant discoveries.
We lost a dear friend yesterday and at this stage of life we can’t afford to lose friends.
I like keeping up with unimportant “stuff” – you know like the first frost date, the first bloom date for the Christmas cactus, and I always note on my calendar the first fire of the fall season.
Well, you better make that the first intentional fire – the one conducted in the fireplace and not in the kitchen. The latter happened when I unsuccessfully tried to clean my oven and a greasy pan at the same time. I don’t recommend it.
Not that we’re old mind you, it’s just that I’m having a hard time adjusting to the idea that it’s coming – faster than the Rebel barreling down the railroad tacks on its way through West Point Mississippi in the 1955,.. You try to stop it and you’ll get flattened.
