I am so sad. My convertible is no more. The wonderful news is that DD#2 is going to be OK. She was shaken up, is very sore, has whiplash and a little scrape on her elbow. But the doc checked her out thoroughly. Some fool driver who was not paying attention turned left across her lane directly in front of her and she couldn't stop in time to keep from hitting him. Both the airbags went off. The windshield is broken. The front is completely crunched. The sides are crunched and the doors wouldn't open. DD was driving with the top down so she was able to climb out. She called me crying and so upset. This is one time I really hated and resented being up here in Nashville instead of with my baby who needed me. Fortunately my sister, Sally, was able to get over to the scene and be there in my place. The driver of the other car is fine. He was in a big Lincoln Town Car. My convertible didn't stand a chance.
Goodbye little Sebring. I will miss you! Thank you for taking such good care of my baby.
Practice random kindness and senseless acts of beauty.
I don't like to say that my kitchen is a religious place, but I would say that if I were a voodoo priestess, I would conduct my rituals there. -- Pearl Bailey Ponder well on this point: the pleasant hours of our life are all connected by a more or less tangible link, with some memory of the table. -- Charles Pierre Monselet, French author (1825-1888).
The ordinary arts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest. --Sir Thomas More You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it. --Edith Head A dinner chosen according to one's needs, tastes, and moods, well prepared and well served, is a joy to all senses and an impelling incentive to sound sleep, good health, and long life. Therefore, at least once a day, preferably in the quiet cool of the evening, one should throw all care to the winds, relax completely, and dine leisurely and well. --Count Arnaud Cazenave
Welcome to my blog. I love to cook. I love to garden. I collect art deco. And my camera is like Karl Malden's American Express card. I don't leave home without it. Most of my photographs are of food, dishes, our farm & our travels.
In June of 2005 I was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome, a disease where the DNA of the bone marrow gets messed up & stops producing blood cells. 18 July 2009 I had a bone marrow transplant. Currently I am still under treatment. I have had some dysplasia show up again in one of my cell lines and have begun a new round of chemotherapy. Mainly I try to focus on the positive.
Blogging lets me keep my family up to date & lets me share recipes, photographs & my love of cooking and dishes. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoy posting.
