I made up a recipe today, so I am going to post it before I forget it.

Bacon Wrapped Sole Fillets

Ingredients:

Sole fillets (2 per person)
Tony Chacheres seasoning
onion--chopped into rectangles
cheddar cheese (probably can use another kind)--cut into large cubes
bacon

Use a 13x9inch dish
Heat oven to 400 degrees

Rinse fish
sprinkle with Tony Chaceres seasoning
Place onion and cheese in center of fish
Roll up
Wrap bacon around fish

After placing all fish in pan or dish, cook for 15 to 20 minutes. Broil for five minutes(or until done) to brown bacon.

I served this with fried rice and a salad. Yum!

My seventy-eight year old dad, who has been through his share of suffering, pain and loss, likes to quote this verse to me:

Psalm 90:10 (KJV)The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.

Accomplishments galore attended my day today. I figured out how to prepare and send Noelle's manuscript to the copyright office--that just took two hours. As soon as her copyright is recorded, we'll get her first book, The End of Chess, published through Amazon.

This afternoon my vacuum cleaner parts arrived and, believe it or not, I repaired my vacuum all by myself, and it is as good as new! So Sarah doesn't have to buy me that $500.00 vacuum I want after all. :)

Funny quote from George MacDonald in the fairy tale "Little Daylight":

"But I never knew of any interference on the part of a wicked fairy that did not turn out a good thing in the end. What a good thing, for instance, it was that one princess should sleep for a hundred years! Was she not saved from all the plague of young men who were not worthy of her? And did she not come awake exactly at the right moment when the right prince kissed her? For my part, I cannot help wishing a good many girls would sleep till just the same fate overtook them. It would be happier for them, and more agreeable to their friends."
