My great, great aunt Lillian Causey was on her way to becoming a famous painter when she passed away in her forties.
She painted this watercolor portrait of my grandparents on their wedding day that I published in this post
Just this morning I received an email from Dan, who said he found a watercolor of his Uncle Eugene Frey, who attended Peabody Conservatory in 1940. The portrait was signed Lillian Causey. He found my blog in a Google search!
Judging by the similarity of the paintings and signature, I’d say it was my aunt’s work!
Just another one of those internet connections : )
Remember the days of Family Matters and Full House? Those nights when mom announced you could eat by the TV for fun? And she whipped up a big pot of gooey mac and cheese? That’s the vibe I was going for at lunch today. I wanted something warm and comforting.
Adult-ified with some swiss chard:
And trading Full House for House Hunters!
But sadly, this was not very good. It wasn’t very cheesy and was kind of sticky/dry. Not what I remember from my childhood! I think I recall the kind of the squeeze pack of “cheese” being the tastiest. I should have consulted with my mac and cheese expert 5th grade self.
Apple on the side!
Today has been a lot of this and this. Procrastination. Avoidance of the outdoors. I think it’s time to do some yoga or take a walk. I’m getting a little cabin fever. Wish there was enough snow on the ground to go sledding! That’s the ultimate workout.
