Update On Me and Gram

Hey Y'all!

Miss Laurie here. Thank you all for praying for me and my great-grandmother (Gram). I arrived safely in NY state about two weeks ago and it's been very busy since then. Gram and I are getting along famously. Her shoulder has healed up nicely and she seems to enjoy having a companion now. I enjoy running the household for her and spending time with her each day. She has many witty sayings and a quirky sense of humor that make each day lots of fun!

I've been cooking and baking up a storm and Gram's appetite seems to increase with the good home cooking. Among the dishes I've enjoyed making are Broccoli Cheddar Soup, Hamburger Stew, Cheesy Potato and Ham Casserole, Banana Bread, Applesauce Bread and Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. I've also enjoyed the challenge of making some gluten free meals for my aunt who visits us twice a week.

Gram's calico cat "Kittercat" is her faithful companion and she seemed to take to me right away. That was the first test I had to pass and thankfully she's become my friend too, she must have been able to tell I am a cat person! We have visitors almost every day which include lots of family. Gram's friend Rosie usually visits once a week and it's fun making and serving tea and treats for them.  I started a crochet project too, a lap sized aphgan in Autumn colors.

Life is going well so far. Autumn here in NY is so pretty and I'm really enjoying it!

So that's a little update. I have a list of posts I want to do since I have a bit more time for writing now. Hopefully I'll also be starting back to posting a game every week.

Very Truly Yours,

Gluten-free? I bake GF all the time (plus a bunch of other allergy-free foods)! So glad your Gram's doing better and you're having a swell time! I've been praying for you and your Gram. :)
