First, let me thank all the folks who have dropped off food at my home in light of my illness. This would include the above gorgeous pie...a French- Canadian meat pie called a tourtiere. My friend, Marilyn, made it for me...along with 20 others for her relatives. Traditionally, this is served on Reveillon, or Xmas Eve in Canada and parts of Northern New England. Marilyn also brought along mashed potatoes and gravy. Very hardy and filling. In fact, my family has been lucky enough to be on the receiving end of many comfort meals showing up on our doorstep...chicken and rice soup...lasagna...chicken divan...brownies and cookies...even a wonderful Incredible Edible fruit "bouquet"...oh, tidings of comfort and joy!
And then there are the people who want to keep me snuggly and warm...like Rick's wife, Carla, who knitted me this cute button hat. I didn't even know she was in to knitting. And then I received another cute, sparkly seasonal green hat. I am wearing new hats every day! I may never need to wear my two wigs again...affectionately known now as LaVerne and Shirley...short and brown and the other longer and blonder.
Oh, and the cocktail slippers. Until I can get back to legitimate cocktails...and not just my chemo cocktail...these slippers will have to do the job. They fit like a charm...and have traction on the bottom to keep me from appearing tipsy! I am not sure I can ever thank everyone enough for their generosity and thoughtfulness.
