Thanks for the pictures of Eddie. Been wondering when they would come. Nice family pictures of the Richards. Are Andy's shoulders as broad as they look in the pictures. I like the looks of your "Swedish" bathroom. It really looks nice...and bright.
It looks like Green Bay will win the game. I know you are all rooting for them to win. It's been a good game. They got a touchdown so it's a win!
We've had a couple of inches of snow today.
Thurs. I made dinner rolls but they didn't turn out that good so I made another batch yesterday. Also I made veg. beef soup & an apple pie. It came out good. I was glad as I never am sure if it will be good when I make apple pie. Will have to get the same apples every time. Used Ida-red apples.
The first Fri. in Feb. we were to go out & eat at Wolf's Den as it is a little closer for the Schaffers who are in Ohio. But Ted Benson called & said they can't make it so they wondered about the Liberty St. Cafe in Warren. But I said I'd like them to come here for lunch as a think you for thinking of me & picking me up. Benson's, Hollertz's, & Ray & Eleanor have all picked me up. So they'll come here & I already have planned the menu.
It will be chicken as they all like that & pork or ham doesn't agree with Anna H. A jello salad, cardamum rolls & dessert but I haven't settled between a couple of dessert recipes. It's between a chicken-rice casserole that comes out good or a cheesy chicken casserole that it tasty with mushrooms & munster cheese. But then I'd need potatoes & would use a frozen potato casserole that is good.
Fri. we went to Jamestown & I found a puzzle I liked & started it Fri. nite while watching skating on TV. Michelle Kwan came out on top. U.S. has some excellent up & coming skaters, both male & female. The puzzle is waiting for me & I have a little time before meal preparations. We're using the new G. Foreman grill with thicker steaks from Schwann's.
There is something I want to write but it wen as fast as it came to mind.
They're already advertising NASCAR on Fox. Dale is ready for it.
Mon. after supper Jan 14
I read your library newsletter from page to page & it is always interesting. Hard to find books at our library as they are working in the area where the book shelves are. I think they are removing the aspestos (can't find how to spell it in the dictionary). I hope it's soon done as I'm ready to read again. There are a few books in the entry as well as the check out desk.
Got the Penney's spring & summer catalogue last Fri. Fun to look thru but not much took my fancy.
Tonite I watch TLC channel & Trauma: Life in the ER & then Maternity Ward. From 8-10 pm.
In the Sun. paper there was an interesting article on Jerry Orbach. It said Law & Order was renewed for another 5 years! Jo. Orbach has been on a few "Murder, She Wrote" programs & I always like him.
I like my pan & pot holder over the stove but it gets dusty & doesn't look good. With company coming I cleaned it today. Scrubbed it as it was oily dirt & dust. Looks better. Also brushed the walls, corners, etc. to take away any cobwebs. Couldn't see any but that doens't mean they aren't there.
Barb is counting calories -- wants to lose 5 lbs. She still had a piece of apple pie.
Here it is Tues & this letter is not in the mail.
I'll mail it tomorrow -- walking to 5th Av. to mail it.
Been looking over dessert recipes. I want to serve something light & easy to fix. Maybe an angel food dessert. Or a frozen pie I can make ahead of time. I have the Mud Duck pie recipe. And peanut butter pie. Both could be made earlier in the week.
Finished my puzzle. 2 pieces are missing & I can't find them. I check the floor on my hands & knees but they blend in too well with the rug.
Barb saw a sale catalog from Nordstrom's at Lynn's & saw a couple of things she liked & sent for them. They came today. A pretty blue velvet shirt-like top that is so pretty. A dressy sleeveless top in blue. Don't know where she'll wear it. And an oversized shirt in coral. Very pretty.
