Today was a fun, relaxing day. We started out with breakfast around eleven, then met Robin at Luby’s for a late lunch at 3 p.m. (Thanks, Robin, for lunch!) We stopped by to say hello to our favorite little girls and their families, then came back to watch tv and chill.

The Colts are playing… and so far, the monkeys are not pleased.

Jene’ has to work tomorrow, the busiest day of the retail year. I will be decorating the Christmas tree and chilling out at the house.

The only items cooked in our kitchen today were sausage rolls and eggs for breakfast, and between breakfast and lunch, Jene’ made us a banana cream pie for dessert.

This pie was made completely from scratch from bottom to top. Because it’s made from scratch it has significantly less sugar and at least twice the protein of an ordinary banana cream pie which makes it the perfect dessert for me. It’s not too rich or sugary and an hour later, I don’t have the “you really shouldn’t have eaten that…” headache.

Here is a photo essay of the creation of the banana cream pie.

And, now that I’m sitting in here and my nose is cold, I’m going to dig out my new electric blanket and get toasty… and hopefully the Colts will make the monkeys happy soon.


I seek to live, breathe & work creatively. Late bloomer. I survived breast cancer and so much more. I will meet each challenge w/determination, badassery & sass!
