See this darling man?
My uncle, Vernon Cumings, passed away Friday. He had a good long life, but his family -- including the Brick and yours truly -- will miss him. We need to go to the service on Tuesday -- which has meant a whole lot of pushing back some tasks, and cancelling others. In fact, we'll be on the road to Michigan in a few hours. You'll be hearing from me this week -- but from Michigan. Staffers will hold the fort here in Colorado.
I'm glad I've been collecting goodies for you all week, so I can still share Stuff:
Eating -- and spending -- less. A lot less. (Check the comments.) From Budgets are Sexy.

Vietnamese-style banh mi -- meatball sandwiches, in this case. (From My Bare Cupboard)
Have a good week.
God is good, all the time.
All the time, God is good.
