Catching up – Nov 20 & 21

Post birthday day was just fine. I went to work where we had a potluck planned for the holiday. The contribution I signed up for was whipped cream. But I also bought some pumpkin chocolate chip cookies because yum! Also, as I mentioned earlier, I made some seasoned nuts. I bought roasted unsalted mixed nuts…

Better day

Shortly after I finished writing my post yesterday, my mom called. She shared that she had been triggered to grief the day before. It’s her story, so I’ll let her tell it if she wants, but we both agreed how unexpected it can be. We shed a few more tears then got on to other…

Grief well

Today started out well. I got up early and went to get breakfast at Bondar’s. I chose to eat it there and read my book. Around 9:15 am, I left and took a walk through downtown. I really like downtown in the morning. Then I headed to acupuncture which was great. I felt very good…

Quiet night

I had a meeting downtown today at noon, so after it was over, I was able to come home and work the rest of the day from my living room. That was nice. After work, I changed, turned on the TV, and started making dinner. I made a huge amount of pasta (probably 6 meals…

Shopping and (watching) Baking

I was fortunate to have the day off today. My internal clock woke me at 6 am, so I got up and went out for breakfast. I went to Breakfast Republic where I usually have their breakfast sandwich which is pretty good. I took my book and enjoyed a lovely morning. At home, I read…

can you resist a high five?

Apparently I can’t. On my evening walk through downtown San Diego tonight, I was just going about my business. I was not smiling. In fact, the last two evenings, I’ve been, how can I say, in my head, maybe more than usual. I try to keep present, but memories swarm and thoughts of what my…

on the menu: shrimp

This morning, I took a package of shrimp out of the freezer determined to finally cook it. The package was from Blue Apron, raw, tails-on shrimp. I had thrown out the BA recipe some time ago, but as I’m trying to eat a little bit better, or at least cook a bit more, I was…

I’m so bad at this

This being NaBloPoMo which is National Blog Posting Month which is November which means posting on your blog every day of the month. Haha. I had written down on my list of to-dos for the day, and I had every intention to do it. I got home from work, went for a walk, made dinner and…
