My little red box

I've been on the lookout for my little red box for quite some time. I remember seeing it before my concussion but since then I have no clue. I know it's in the house s.o.m.e.w.h.e.r.e., but where?

This little box contains my recipes. Recipes from when my girls were very little. Recipes given to me by my friends, all of whom have moved far, far away. Recipes I don't want to lose.

I have six plus shelves of cookbooks that I have collected over the years. Each and every one contains some recipe I don't want to lose.....but I do......cause I don't write anything down......and who can figure out which book the recipe came from.

So......I started my online recipe file. I didn't add pictures but now I wish I had. I can't go back cause I have no clue what I did with the recipe card. I think I discarded it because, you see, I am simplifying my life. Having the recipe online I won't lose it therefore I no longer need the card. Oh well :)

I'm still going thru books in my basement. There are now three boxes overflowing with books going to a new home. Never in a million years did I ever think I would part with any of my books. As Martha says "it's a good thing", and it is!

Have a great day, my friends, and God bless!

I wish I was there to help you find your little red box. I admire you for organizing your recipes. That has been my New Year's resolution for the last 3 years - it still isn't done!!

You had a concussion? Did you fall? Or did it have to do with getting overheated.

Hope you are all better now.

Hope you find your little red box, Darlene. Those recipes are so precious. I say a prayer for you. So good that you enjoy reading too. I have lots of books at home. Have a great day and God bless!
