I hope by tomorrow my world is back in sync. Last evening and night really messed up my timing. All's well that ends well so let's move on.
I had every intention of changing my blog name from Mary to something more unique but when I think about it maybe not. Mary is a common basic name and I'm a common basic woman so the name fits. For now I think I'll let everything stay the same.
I slow roasted a Boston Butt in the oven today. The convection oven really makes oven roasting easy. We had the ever present green salad, steamed cauliflower, oven baked potato wedges, and various condiments. The boys mom made some really unique cookies (white choc and peppermint) that are out of this world. She uses a variety of flour and grains in her cooking. The lady is an inventive cook and rarely has a failure. I haven't told my blogger friends much about her. Hold on to your hats. We share the same first and middle names. Mary Ruth. How cool is that? She is a lovely lady and a wonderful, attentive mother to the grandsons. I forget that she's my daughter-in-law and not my daughter sometimes and have to remind myself. She is always ready to help me at any time - and does so with love and a smile. I didn't ask permission but am going to post one of my favorite pictures of her. This picture was made Easter 07 while the boys were hunting Easter eggs in our back yard. Isn't she a beauty?
Over the next few blogs I intend to relate a few things I remember about growing up. Ricky is printing my blogs and most of the comments (the ones wishing Beatrice well) for my sister. She is doing well but finding the necessity to be in rehab a bit limiting for her taste. Can't say that I blame her. Love you Sis.
Wish me a long night of sound sleep. I wish the same for each of you. My best to all. Thanks for visiting and commenting.
