  • ♪ We are family ♪

    2011 - 06.24


    Cooking, cooking, cooking and then add to that, cleaning, cleaning, cleaning. This is my Friday. I’ve invited both sides of our families up for dinner tomorrow. It’s something I haven’t done for awhile because it’s so danged hard to pull together. Reading some of your comments to this blog and what you thought of my book Saturday Night Cocoa Fudge has me reminiscing to the point where I’m doing the joint family thing again.

    We used to do this quite often but then this person said that, that person felt this…and eventually I got hurt, too. Yeah, yeah, I know that happens in families but these are in-laws I’m talking about. The same thing can hurt just as much but be forgiven more easily within your own bloodline. Somehow, when the insult comes from “them”, that “other side of the family”, it seems harsher and lasts longer. I know it’s not nice to hold a grudge but I’ll freely admit I do. But all of us are growing older, faster (it seems) and I’m willing to give it another go.

    So, as I’ve watched my mother in the past, I began cleaning a week early, planning the menu two weeks early, and started cooking at 7 this morning. It’s not that the menu is that huge, and others are bringing side dishes, it’s just that I have more cleaning to do, laundry to finish as I’m cooking. And now I’m more tired than I’ve been in a long time. And speaking of growing older, I have polyarticular pain, so my body’s screaming right about now. I’m glad I’m not as old as I feel or we’d be contacting nursing homes.

    I remember hearing Mamaw mention “hurting so bad” but, bad granddaughter that I was, I didn’t pay much attention. I’m so sorry, Mamaw, I think I might finally be “getting it.” I just wish I’d understood when you were still with me.

    So, back to the cooking and cleaning. May God take pity on me. Heck, since I’ve already got half the state coming, why don’t YOU just come on over, pull up a chair, sit a spell and have a bite? I promise I won’t even complain once if you will!

    If you need something good to read, how about checking out my books and short stories on Amazon? Gloria Teague and GT Everett (my dark side) both have something for everyone!

    6. Some expert in raw food movement say that due to heat, a
      centrifuge juicer can destroy all enzymes
      or a part of them. The quality of juice obtained from an orange juice extractor is not the same as what is mass-produced and sold in stores.

      Some of these juicer machines actually claim themselves as
      well, just by you adding warm water and turning on the juicer to let it run.
