My sister-in-law, who is busy with three children 6 years and younger, orders through a meal service once a week. No cooking is involved beyond heat-and-eat. She uses a service called Munchery, but I know there are others like this in other places. I was babysitting for her one day and for lunch she had set aside a Munchery heat-and-eat chickpea stew for me to enjoy. It was packed with all the garnishes in separate little tubs, like a lime wedge, chopped cilantro etc. All the packaging looked like it could be either recycled or composted. The stew was surprisingly good.

Bernie, you put your personal life on hold and moved across the country to help your father. There is no possible way that your father does not recognize that you are there to help. Even if you make a little mistake or two along the way in dealing with the complexities of eldercare, I'm sure your father will always know and appreciate the fact that he has a fine son. And as I always tell my students, "mistakes are not mistakes if you learn something from them".

Carry on bravely, soldier!

Bernie, wishing you peace as you puzzle out the needs of your father. It is so hard for our elders to admit they need help. It is probably normal for your father to try and hide things from you. The bigger challenge will be to help him "save face" when you figure out what sorts of assistance he needs.

Those ribs look awesome. My sister-in-law took a picture of Eric and your's truly by the turkey, but she hasn't emailed me the picture yet.

Now I'm prepping for a family cookie party Eric and I host each year. I am doing things today like chopping nuts and toasting coconut. It is taking every ounce of willpower I have to not eat up all the toasted coconut on the baking sheet. Gosh, I love the stuff!!!

LOL!!! I've been to Helsinki, but not in the winter!!!

This sign reminds me of something a baggage handler said to Eric and to me one Christmas when we were traveling to the midwest.

The baggage handler asked for our final destination and I said Duluth. He asked, "Now why would anybody go to Duluth in December?" and I answered, "because my husband's mother makes really delicious butter cookies for Christmas".

The baggage handler said, "You tell his mama to put some of those butter cookies in the deep freeze, and then go out and see her in July!"

Not seen that picture before Ang, but really lovely, plus the resident pussy cat. The exact same place that I fed the racoons in 2011. Never to be forgotten ever.

I included that picture of Spawnie in my New Year's post from last January, but you may have missed it.


Next 20
