Simple soups and a divine chocolate dessert for the weekend | lifestyle

Happy Friday the 13th! Some people have a real fear of dating, but I think it’s a great day. My mom would have been 97 today and my friend and former ODR colleague Mel Schmitz’s birthday today – two great women!

Last Sunday I received a warm welcome at First Baptist Church where I played the piano. The experience was enhanced by the beautiful grand piano I played. I learned that it was donated to the church by the late Mary Kay Miller, a very gifted musician herself. Mary Kay could sit at any piano and give an afternoon concert without a sheet of music. She played mostly by ear, a talent that is rare and enviable. Throughout my years of lessons and beyond, I have always relied on printed music. It was an honor to play the same instrument she probably spent hours on.
