Big news in our world!!!!!

Josh proposed to Suzanne and she said yes!!!!

I borrowed their engagement announcement to use here. The picture on the left was taken last summer when they were in Paris. Paul took the picture on the right when they came for dinner last Sunday.

It is wonderful to see one's child so happy. We love Josh dearly and look forward to calling him our son-in-law. They are hoping for a wedding date in Fall 2013.

I have started a project I am calling a

I am reposting all of my Mom's recipes to a new site. I shared in my last post that the old one no longer exists.

Just going through the recipes is a great experience. I can hear her laugh and smell the great aromas that came out of her kitchen as I work.

Here is where I have placed her collection: Grandma McDougall's Recipes  Click and enjoy!

I have so many more to go!

And the summer drifts by...

I have been absent from this page since our travels ended in May.
We've been occupied. Work, knitting, watering plants, the usual exciting stuff.
We haven't travelled because Bauxite Betsy has been at the dealership since the end of May, having warranty work done. The anticipation of her return has been an exercise in patience.
We hosted our dinner group last Saturday and had a great evening. We served a southern menu. We love those evenings with these dear friends.

I am faced with the job of converting the files I had published online of Grandma McDougall's recipes and my own personal collection. Access one of those sites and you will find this greeting;

In Apple's shift to iCloud, the capability to publish those collections on personal websites through MacGourmet disappeared. I had hoped there would have been an alternative provided, but it does not appear that will happen anytime soon. My first concern is Mom's recipes. I'll get them back online for the family, it will just take some time. I am presently in the beginning stages of a new site.

I'll keep you posted.
