Our Mother's Day sermon ended with something about retiring to a place that had a study, a sewing room and a guest room in the scaled down version of the retirement home. I think that sounds about right. It's just blasted hard to get motivated to move though-so much work!
We have a family recipe for turtle brownies. You make it in a 9 X 13 pan. I made this casserole cover for her. She likes to make the turtles and bring them to parties. I made this with insulated batting so whatever she chooses to bring to a party, it will stay hot or cold.
My daughter lives in Albuquerque where they celebrate the Day of the Dead. It's sort of like our Memorial Day where they visit graves and remember people that have passed.
