Friday Random Ten
Now though, things have changed. She got a little girl a couple of weeks ago. The social worker brought her to my sister on purpose. This beautiful little 8 year old has been being kept in conditions which can only be described as Dickensian, but has somehow managed to keep a decent outlook and view of life. My sister has begun the adoption process, and is bringing the girl down to meet some of her new family. Since my new digs are fairly central I will be hosting an informal get together. Last night, I made two mincemeat pies. Ok, only one of them has survived intact from breakfast, but there's a pie plus another 4/6ths of a pie.
This morning's project is to be at Costco when it opens to get that furry butterscotch mechanical horse which is supposed to be the hot, hot, hot toy of the season. Then, back into the kitchen to make an Angel Food Cake, or, maybe two. Anyway, here's the soundtrack from my kitchen. I just tracked through a random slice of ten.
