This year instead of the pumpkin pie, Ralphie made something different this year, a double-layer pie. He also made cute little fruit (blackberry and cherry) pies.
This cake is on display at Shrine of St. Rose Philippine Duchesne in St. Charles.
The Blessing (Tune of Edelweiss) – Bless our friends, bless our food, come, O Lord and sit with us, may our talk glow with peace, bring your love to surround us. Friendship and peace may it bloom and grow, Bloom and grow forever, Bless our friends, bless our food, bless our dear land forever.
Hello from my corner in St. Louis …
I am sure you all have seen destructive images and enough negative news stories reportedly coming from St. Louis. I chose not to be one of those “wannabe” reporters or those trying to post pictures on their social media to prove that they were part of the “actions” or to get a few “likes” on their webpage. I chose these good and beautiful images (from the Missouri Botanical Garden) because I believe if you could not contribute to make it better, at least try not adding to the problems.
Family and friends have been sending words asking about our well-being in STL. The current situation (in North county) does not directly impact where we live which is in West county area. However, my office building is located two blocks from the Prosecutor’s office. It was a very tense and stressful time for all of us. My office closed around 3pm on Monday prior to the announcement of the decision. The next two days, I went to work and the area was quiet, different from what you might see on national news. My husband works outside of St. Louis, so the situation does not directly impact his workplace.
Let’s pray for peaceful days ahead …
