Update on Hubby and other stuff ...

Okay, Vikki … this is for you.

Steve is doing really well. He’s getting around amazingly well and is eating more. Tonight for dinner we had green beans with potatoes, creamed corn, and black-eyed peas. Not low-carb at all, but oh well. After working all day, I’m not up to making two different dinners. So I’m taking a break from the low-carb eating for awhile until life gets back on track.

Speaking of work, I’m back this week, and it’s been good. I work with such great people and I really enjoy my job. I’m blessed, I know. I left work a few minutes early today and voted on my way home. It wasn’t bad at all; I was in and out in under 25 minutes.

I’m starting to think about Christmas gifts. I usually have a lot more gifts bought by this time of the year, so I need to get in gear! I’ve decided I’m going to make my Cashew Brittle for co-worker and neighbor gifts. I didn’t make any last year, but everyone asks for it, so I’m going to do it this year. I’ll post that recipe soon – maybe tomorrow night. It’s super fast and easy, totally goof-proof, and delicious.

Oh I'm so glad he's continuing to do so well. I'm also happy that things went well with you going back to work. I know it will go a long way to helping you get back into the swing of things and getting things back to normal.

So now my question is... How's Patty doing? It feels like it's been forever since I talked to you, but things have been a bit crazy around here for some reason. I seem to be busy all day long but I don't seem to get that much done.. :o( Oh well sometimes lifes like that huh?
Take care, hope to talk soon and have a good week.

it IS getting to be that time of year where one has to watch out for the dreaded Fruit Cakes, and for those of us with poor teeth, the deadly "peanut brutal". (lol)

I'm doing well, Vikki! I know, it does seem like ages since we've talked. Maybe soon!

Gary, it's only been in the last few years that I tried a fruitcake and actually loved it. It was deliciously dense and flavorful, loaded with fruit, nuts and (I think) bourbon. Sooooo good.

It's nice to read good news for your husband and you. Surely, this will continue and this will be only a bad souvenir. Take care

So glad to hear Steve's doing well, but I agree with Vikki, how's Patty doing?

Patty said...

Thank you, Helene! From your lips to God's ear!

Hey Gracie! I'm okay, really I am! Just having Steve improve like he is - it feels like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders.
