A very productive day. Sorted through all my Christmas decorations, and got four bins down to two. Lots of "stuff" I didn't even use the last few years, so it will be at the yard sale. Three bins of Fall decorations down to two, and one bin for Spring/Easter and one bin for all my "red" kitchen stuff.
While going through some boxes Don found this picture of my mother and the motto she lived by. I took it out of the box and put it on my desk along with the little plaque with her motto. "Only one day will soon be past ~~Only what's done for Christ will last".
Thinking about my mom, and missing her I couldn't help but think of one of her favorite meals to fix, and growing up we had meatloaf and scalloped potatoes once a week. She made a sweet sauce of ketchup, mustard and brown sugar for the top. I only had small red potatoes, but washed and sliced with the peeling, a little butter, flour, milk, and topped with bacon and cheese. Mom, this meal was for you.
Finished it off with a toss salad with everything I could find in the refrigerator! Oh bummer, I just remembered, I forgot to add the avocado.
Note: My watercolor behind my mom's picture is very special for me as I painted it while I cared for her before she passed away. She would sleep a lot, and I worked on this painting while she slept. That was 1991.
