Well, 9 more inchs of SNOW, it is falling anout 2 inches an hour right now....nothing new for here, we have been busy running to the Doctors, getting tests and an MRI for My Honey, Church, and getting our ducks in a row for Christmas.
My Honey is in rough shape, she has a Degenerative Spine Condition and has had a bad set back, SO, we are now off ASAP to to a Neuro-Surgeon for his opinion. That means an hour ride down an back on snowy roads a few times to see whats next.
Wednesday I put Beef in the crock pot at 8AM, cut up carrots, newly dug potatoes, cut and peeled a couple dozen small summer onions, and let it simmer for 8 hours, went to our Alpha Group at church, everyone loved the Beef Stew and I enjoyed my plate of cottage cheeze, sliced apples, and cup of chicken Broth!!(UGGH). BUT I am progressing very well and losing weight as per the doctors orders. I still hurt but am healing and waiting for Christmas so I can eat MEAT!!!! I was able to pound out 3 songs on the Guitar for our group but quit while I was ahead.
Last night I was dreaming about a Smithfield Spiral Cut Ham, covered in Pinapple and clove with bacon strips and Amaretto Glaze with Sweet Potatoe Pie, black beans and rice and sharp cheddar cheeze on a piece of warm Carmel Pecan Pie BUT my Honey woke me up as I was chewing on her arm!!!!!
The 21st I am cooking 6-- 20+ pound turkeys, 40 pounds of potatoes and dressing and the ladies of the church will make their fabulous pies and cakes for desert and we will have our Community Stone Soup Supper for the Public's Christmas Dinner, We have noticed a large increase in our Dinners and some new faces which we are glad to see.
I am pleased to say we have 3,500 troops home back at Fort Drum from 15 months in Iraq who will be able to spend the Holidays with friends and family. Unfortunately there were some who did not return home who "Gave their All" !!! Hopefully those who came home will get their year off before being deployed again. Some units from Fort Drum have been deployed 3 to 4 times since this thing started over there. We probably will never be able to stop deployments but we can all pray for it to stop.
Hope everyone has a great wekend!!!!!!
