Let the past sleep, but let it sleep in the sweet embrace of Christ, and let us go on into the invincible future with Him. (Oswalt Chambers)

Comment Questions

Beth asked . .
Your socks always look so nice in photos. Did you make your own kids'-size sock blockers?
Yep. They're cut out of corrugated cardboard. I have to be careful not to bend them. Other than that, they work great for picture taking.


Carol asked . .
What did you have to eat on Thanksgiving? You never did say.
It was a very traditional Thanksgiving dinner with seitan in place of the turkey.

According to the Kroger Food Guide
Seitan is a chewy, protein-rich food made from hard winter wheat that resembles meat in texture and taste.
I won't go so far as to agree it tasted like meat, but it was very good.

Brother-in-law John spent most of the day in the kitchen. We woke to the smell of fresh baked bread and he made enough so we could have some for breakfast. He also made mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing, carrots, squash, brussel sprouts, and pumpkin pie.

One of the appetizers was green olives stuffed with a generous sliver of fresh garlic clove. Normally I don't care for olives, but this combination was a mouth watering zinger. Outstanding, but not for the timid eater.

The meal was delicious and lovely.

I was so busy smelling, tasting, talking, and enjoying that I forgot to haul the camera out and take a picture.
