I'm in Iowa, logging in using a WiFi gadget that I share with my sister (we just leave it at Mom's house for when we visit). What a difference from reading mail & blogging via my Blackberry!
Also an improvement is Mom's health. She's still tottery but is making a bit of a recovery from the pneumonia which had her sidelines earlier this month. I've been doing a lot of cooking and just generally keeping her company. It's hard to be stuck at home with so little you can do, physically.
Care to share any good recipes for someone with little appetite and trouble with her teeth? I'd love to find a dessert recipe for something custardy and rich. Any ideas how to make a traditional Thanksgiving meal that's a little more elderly-friendly?
