Let's see-the weekend was full. Friday night Stan, Syd and I went to the Belgrade Festival of Lights just to watch the floating luminaries. Syd even got to send one off! I made a video, but my Sony camera saves it in a format that Facebook and Blogger don't recognize so I have to wait til Millie sends me the conversion program before I can post it. Hope it works, it was breathtaking! Saturday Millie picked me up and we took the two 7-year-olds to the Nutcracker. Very, very good-great dancers and they had the Bozeman Symphony play. It was a bit sad-the founder of the Montana Ballet Company passed away just a week ago. She had sold the company a couple of years ago, but her mark was still on everything. We sat on the aisle so I could get up and walk if I needed to-and I did! Then to the Community Co-op for lunch. Then home. I had kind of an accident-I spaced it out as I went down the stairs and took the last step with my left foot instead of my right. I wasn't injured and I didn't fall, but that hurt like holy h**l! I laid my head on the bannister and sobbed. It's fine now, and I think it even bends a bit more. I had asked Stan to build me a short practice step, and after that he went right out to the garage and built it!
Sunday was church and our Advent supper. I love that we get into the season so much now. We even have three lit-up Christmas trees on the platform. And we always light the Advent Candle. I stayed home last night while Stan went to the Bible class. Any excuse to be alone-something I don't get much of right now. A lot of fun-I watched TV with my eyes closed!
This morning I made macaroons. They are delicious-ever as good as what you get in Mazatlan. Dulce de Coco is a regional specialty there. The only thing-the recipe calls for parchment and all I had was wax paper. I will NEVER make that mistake again! The cookies were glued to the paper! By the time I discovered it I had two pans baked, so on the last pan, I liberally applied no stick spray and took the cookies off the paper. That worked much better! I dampened the back of the wax paper, waited a while, and then peeled it off the stuck cookies. I have to remember to make a big note on the recipe.
Well, off to stretch out a bit and head to physical therapy. I hope I can be at 100 degrees today, since Wednesday I was at 95.
