It's only been approximately a week since I posted, but it seems a long time, so much has happened and we've covered so many miles.
OH CHEESECAKE! That's what this was supposed to be. Chocolate Caramel Cheesecake at that! Here's a clue--make sure you have all the ingredients, read all the way through the recipe, and have plenty of time so you don't try to hurry things along by trying to cool the crust in the freezer where it will Fall Out All Over the Floor when you go to take it out! (As it turned out, I went to plan B and used store-bought pie crusts, which in turn meant I had to make more filling. At any rate, the ladies at my circle meeting said the final project tasted great!)
Saturday morning, May 8, B, M, T, and I were headed to Hutchinson to visit Mom and enjoy an organ rededication service (which was very nice!) at First Presbyterian on Sunday. Well, on the way to Hutch, Mom called to let us know that Aunt Lela had just died. It was all very sudden.
T. had to be back Monday for school and a track meet, plus we picked up some of K's stuff at Bethany--you know.....a small Christmas tree and decorations, CD player/radio, etc. etc.--and brought it on home Sunday evening.
B, M, and I headed back to Hutch Monday morning. Aunt Lela's memorial service was that afternoon. In addition to other relatives, eight of eleven DeMoss cousins were able to be there! We shared good memories of Aunt Lela! She was quite the world traveler, and always brought souvenirs for her nieces and nephews. Did I mention birthdays? I don't think she Ever forgot to send a birthday card!
It was back home again on Tuesday. Subbed Wed. and Thursday afternoons. Can't do that tomorrow. Have a couple of events coming up on Saturday that I'm Not Ready for yet!!!!! Imagine that!
Check back soon and I'll try to have more photos posted.
