Saturday AGAIN!

What the heck?  It’s November 16 and just another 7 weeks to Christmas.
But November or not, it finally warmed up again, and in spite of no sunshine, it was downright nice weather. So I’ve been using this day to go back into the woods to chop down more trees for firewood. Got 5 wheelbarrows of firewood down into the basement, but then it WAS time for a rest. Had made myself a nice meatloaf yesterday, which will probably keep me going for the entire next week.
Did I mention that I also had made an American Cheesecake yesterday? I LOVE cheesecake and to do a little extra I had added some strawberry to the mixture. Of course, this afternoon I HAD to sprinkle some chocolate over top of it and eat the stuff with whipped cream. Nothing beats whipped cream and luckily I have no digestive problems with such delicacies.

When the phone rang, it was Bea.

Bea is coping with an extremely sad situation in Germany and I just wish I could be of any help. Having Bea on the phone today was so sad. Long moments went by without her being able to say anything. So i tried to lighten up her mood, but I know it’s hard on her. It wouldn’t be so hard if we lived close by, but being on a different continent is quite a hardship when it means that it could be the last time she would see her mother.

Thanks for dropping by!


  1. My heart just goes out to you and Bea.... I'd give her a big hug if I could. Bill & I have been together through the loss of all four of our parents and while we know that this is a part of life, it's so sad. You both are in my thoughts.

  2. I'm so sorry for Bea. It is a very difficult thing to go through. Terry's mom is still here and so far healthy but both my parents are gone. Been there, done that and it's definitely hard. Please keep us informed.

  3. I wish you could be there with Bea - it must be so hard to be on her own at a time like this. My thoughts are with you both. :)
