Linking up with Katie and Jena today.
This recipe for Southern style baby rack ribs from the beautiful Helen’s blog, Ah, that’s love has become a new favourite with all of us. I would have taken some photos, however they were not on the plate long enough! One thing I have learnt from my travels in America, you sure do ribs better than in Britain!
That someone who has played a big part in my life for a long time is being deployed to Afghanistan in a few days. For twelve months there will be no crazy random texts at silly times of the night (he’s in North Carolina, I’m five hours ahead in Britain) and no daily check ins, just because. A bit emotional about it all right now to be honest, a simple text from him saying “Don’t be worried, everything will be ok” set me off. Not much else to say on this apart from please, if you pray, keep both him and his unit in your prayers to keep them safe and give them the courage to deal with whatever is ahead. I must be positive but it is going to be a long and worrisome twelve months.
This post (here) that I wrote on Tuesday, has made me more positive about my house. I’m excited to get on with the little jobs that I can right now so that it is a ‘work in progress’ rather than an ‘if only I could afford…’ 🙂
That I am feeling much better and the sun came out this week (before the rain started and the impending snow) and reminded me what a beautiful city I live in. After not being out for a while due to illness I appreciated it all the more and Cardiff certainly looks beautiful in the sun. May be a future blog post showing you around Cardiff is in order?
