Although I try not to write about my grandchildren too terribly much (because I realize they are FAR more fascinating to me than they are to anyone else), I do have to share this collage that our magnificent daughter-in-law, Meagan, recently posted on Facebook.
She said that Noah had turned around and asked her, “Mom, how am I doing?” So, so sweet.
Now onto another (not quite as precious) picture. You may remember that on Monday I posted this weird item that Sarah and I had seen at a thrift store. There were quite a few guesses as to what it was but most of you were like me–clueless.
Well, I am happy to report that long-time reader, Stefanie, has figured it out for us. It is a double chicken roaster! I guess the idea is to prop up both chickens on both round thingies and roast away. Who knew?
Thanks, Stefanie for solving the Chicken Roaster Mystery.
Instead of doing Christmas cards this past year, we did New Year’s cards and I just happen to have fifteen of them left over. If you would enjoy having a card (signed by the three of us), leave a comment at the end of this post and then email your address to me at smithellaneousATyahoo.com.
(I’m asking you to comment so that if anyone wonders how many cards have been spoken for, they can check the comments.)
Last Saturday, we got word that her mother had passed away at just thirty-nine years old. Madi has not had much contact with her mom and has lived with her grandma most of her life, but the loss of such an important person in her life has still been very difficult.
If you think about Madi, and her grandma, Wanda, please pray for peace and comfort.
Thank you for stopping by and, as always, thank you for making this Smithellaneous corner of the world such a lovely place to be.
Thrift stores, fuzzy socks
and conversing with my Yorkie are all on the list of things I love.
