Many thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. They certainly lifted me up, and helped me to get through an anxious time. The surgery went well, thank God, and Dan is now home resting for the week. Thanksgiving will be quiet, which is just fine with me. My son, Liam, will be coming home from Philadelphia on Wednesday, and it will just be the four of us for dinner. Heavenly.
I wanted to take a minute to show you this covered dish that I found at a thrift store last week. You all know how I have a thing for dishes with lids on them, so I couldn't pass this one up, even though it was a little pricey at $10. When I got home, I did some research and found out that it was made by a company in Carlsbad, Austria, probably in the late 1800's. There was a similar dish offered on ebay last week, with a starting bid of $49.99. Oooohh, I love a bargain!
