Weekly Photo Challenge: Treasure

“Capture something you treasure“,    Krista Stevens at WordPress says this week for the challenge.

What better treasure than friends?

Last snowy Sunday my dear friend Joanne (green pepper jelly maker) emails and says,” Let’s SKYPE at 10:30.”

Okay.  At 10:40 I call,  “what happened?”

Oh ten thirty CENTRAL time!  Got it.

So at 11:30 (my time) the SKYPE rings in on my computer and J says,

I have a house guest- would you like to meet her?

(and I am thinking, why would you want to SKYPE with me if you’re entertaining a house guest?)
SURPRISE!  Look who enters the screen!    It’s  Aïda whom I’ve not seen in 27+ years.  We lived in Granfenwoehr Germany in the early ’80s.

Aïda (from Florida) visiting her daughter and granddaughters at Ft. Leavenworth Kansas and drove up for the weekend to visit J.

Great memories of good times with dear friends.  We were on for more than an hour.  What a nice surprise!  Fun.

Hungarian Nut Roll Slideshow

Today Jaclyn and her sister Shannon baked nut rolls together, carrying on family tradition.

Their mother, Theresa, passed last February.  This post is to remember Theresa , those who knew and loved her and to send hugs to Jaclyn and Shannon as they are missing their mom, especially at Christmas time.

Theresa was one of the four sisters in this slideshow (baking the pizelles)  showing the three sisters making nutroll in Pittsburgh- Linda, Georgeann and Theresa,  while the fourth sister Marlene communicated via SKYPE in Virginia.

You might remember the previous post of the 15 greased nut roll pans  where the retro recipe card is photographed in case you want to make them.

Marlene and I share grandchildren and her daughter Erika is married to my son Mark.
