Charlie worry about fats and cholesterol, not calories. Yes I don’t like white sugar either. I mix my natural cocoa (Hershey’s in Canada) with milk and boiling water . Superb. Why don’t you surpirse Phillippe and make some Scotch shortbread? golden yellow sugar, butter (I use Becel margarine, has Omega 3 and no bad stuff, also Canadian), and…[Read more]
No I lived in the Kootenays when I was a kid. Natal is no longer a town as it was taken in the 60s by a mining company for minefield (coal). Another company has it now. Natal and its Turtle Mountain is slightly west of the famous Frank Slide. Now we are in the Okanagan where we don’t get the famous Canadian winters although we do get…[Read more]
Charlie yesterday sunrise came with a rose coloured sky so I ripped open the balcony door and flashed my cell. Yes I remember rooster call in our little coal town in BC Canada’s Kootenays which reminds me I have to get back to my memoir and get some work done.
Marisela tripe is actually the lining of a cow’s stomach — I looked it up to make sure it wasn’t told wrong to me — which my mother would cook. All it took was for me to choke once and that was the end of that.
Charlie, nose in a book? My immediate thought was to draw an open book with a bulbous nose coming out of it. Enjoy your day! My tree is going up tonight too, my progeny picked one up for me this afternoon along with some deco so I am blessed. Glad you enjoyed your dinner!
Holy smokes Charlie you get more desserts in a week than I get in a year. I bought the flour today to make shortbread. I need one cup. The bag holds almost 12 and I gotta find someone to pawn it off on. I won’t use it again. Sigh. Happy Thanksgiving!
Marisela yes I will pray for you. I would call a crisis line and see what your options are. Maybe you can get home help or a volunteer. Yes you need medical care. We don’t pay for it up here in British Columbia althoguh before we did according to income. It is horrible that Americans don’t have much for medicare.
Marisela I love alone time. Cuddly time especially if it is rainy and gloomy outside. I never think of solitude as aloneness for it is not. It is revitalizing! That’s when God can best talk with us and we can best listen. Solitude is a blessing. Enjoy it.
Charlie, Dull westerns? I would pretend I was an actress and gunslinger female partner with Matt Dillon et al. We even had an abandoned shack about the size of an apartment bathroom up the road and it did look like the Rifleman’s cabin. There was even an empty tin can on the floor. Having gotten nowhere trying to get me to learn crochet and…[Read more]
Time off, Charlie! Yes you deserve it and have fun with that tree and the lights. I am sure Phillippe will make cookies and likely enjoy those too. I am going to make Scotch shortbread. I bought half a pumpkin pie in October and no other dessert since last Christmas so I am giving myself a good girl treat. It isn’t the calories, it’s the fats and…[Read more]
Look up Julia Cameron and her books. Her first creativity book is The Artist’s Way where she teaches the things you have to do whether you are writer, artist, redecorator, any creative. Walks are one. Artist Dates are another (take yourself out once a week by yourself and do something you like). Morning pages are three full pages of…[Read more]
Charlie yes and I love my Folgers decaf because it tastes and smells like “real” coffee. I have to have it ready before I tackle my Morning Pages and after I slug back a 12 oz glass of water (five of those every day and did I mention I don’t like water). Your routine is not solid til you have coffee!
Charlie that is nice of you to reassure him. And I too am passing out on my Reading Chair on the first page, first lines, at 8 and waking up about six hours later. Eight hours is what we need for good blood pressure. Imagine, awake at 2 or worse. I make myself stay abed til four or close to it and then get up and write my Morning Pages for an hour…[Read more]
