I made a lentil salad on Monday.
It's got some roasted cauliflower, butternut squash, leeks, garlic and, of course, lentils.
I plopped a few spoonfuls over a smallish blue bowl
of brown basmati rice.
My house was full of boys watching hockey and playing video games
so I slipped into my bedroom with my blue bowl and a cup of tea
I watched the sun shining over the Atlantic
listened to some old Joni Mitchel
and had myself a bit of lunch
At the end of February it will be one year since my step-daughter passed away
I have re-emerged at the end of this year as a different sort of person
I am stronger in ways I would never have wished to be
I am broken in ways I didn't think I would ever be able to recover from
some days I still struggle to get through the loss of my step-daughter
I am also a grandmother!
My heart has grown 2 sizes as the Grinch would say....
I have a new job in Boston and I love it!
in honor of all that I have started to build a better wardrobe
clothing to reflect who I am now
These boots are part of that
I went to see Verne on Monday!
My mum fell on Monday evening.
She had to be transported to hospital by ambulance!
She fractured and chipped her hip
on the left side where she was already sporting a fractured ankle.
Hopefully she will be transported from the hospital to rehab today.
Friday fave fives
willy nilly Friday
