This is a group where we can sit back and enjoy chatting with each other rather than on the recipes. Hopefully in return this will free up some of the recipe comment sections of unwanted chatter.

Thanks and have fun!!!

Update on Norma DeRemer !!

Wanted to give you an update on our Dear Friend Norma DeRemer----

Norma has taken a turn for the worst and is now in hospice care receiving morphine for her pain for her cancer. She has been asleep most of the time.

Her family is asking for prayers. Please pray for Norma.

Thank you.

I have some leftover raw carrots, celery, and broccoli from a vegetable and dip tray I had at a birthday party yesterday. What else would I need to make a vegetable soup out of these? The simpler the better.
Thank you!

Our Friend Norma DeRemer needs prayers

Our friend and member of Just a Pinch, Norma DeRemer, has just given an update on her condition. Just today, she got news from her doctor that her five tumors have grown leading to her liver and are now ALL stage 4 cancer. One is very close to blocking her liver. They are deciding what the next plan of attack will be on these tumors. So PLEASE lets all band together and send strong prayers and thoughts Norma's way. She is very weak and sure could use our encouragement. Thank you all so much.

Wet, wet Christmas

We have had so much rain it is crazy. Lot of roads closed and flooded area. I am suppose to go get my mama in the morning she lives about 40 minutes from us for Christmas but I'm not sure we will be able to get there because of flooding. At least my brother lives in walking distance so he can take her to his house for Christmas so she won't be alone. Praying for the rain to stop

early Christmas present

I got an early present yesterday, went shopping with my wonderful husband and he bought me a new car. The car I was driving we bought new 13 years ago for the last 2 weeks it had started giving me problems my husband wanted something he knew would get me back home and not leave me stranded, I love that husband of almost 40 years more every day. I got a 2015 Kia Optima in a graphite grey, loving it. We are leaving tomorrow and be back on Tuesday for Biloxi, MS. Every year we save all year for our Christmas trip to Biloxi. Fun times on the way.

Trimming the Tree

We put up the tree just a few days ago. My DH volunteered to assemble it. He took all day to put it together. The cats did their inspection and... it failed. It swayed like Foster Brooks. I had to rescue the cat before the tree fell over. I dismantled the tree and reassembled it. My DH didn't have the base properly secured.

I gathered the trimmings and set to work, decorating the tree. I like to listen to Christmas music while I work. One of my favorite cd's is Guitar Winterlude. It is a new-age Christmas album. I originally bought it on cassette tape, back in the late 1980's. Ten years later I found a cd. I love this album. What's your favorite Christmas music/album?
