This week started with a vomiting child, a husband out of town, and a to-do list a mile long for three cooking classes and a yoga retreat lunch. There were times when I questioned whether I would be able to get it all done. Never underestimate the power of hard work and determination. Here are some scenes from this week.
I took advantage of a few quiet hours on Sunday to sort through my cookbooks. The favorites got to stay in the kitchen and the rest went down to the basement. This only about one third of my collection. I counted 156. Then I got two more. (By the way, this is the light in my kitchen. This is why I don’t take more pictures in there.)
After seriously tweaking my neck in yoga a couple of weeks ago, I have been spending a lot of time on this thing. My physical therapist is amazing and I am getting better slowly. She said I had the tightest neck she has ever worked on. So I have that going for me.
I played parking space roulette and lost. Doh!
Whenever Spencer and I are walking together, I instinctively put my hand by my side and he always takes it. His hand is always warm, sometimes slightly sticky, and I will sob on the day that he says he doesn’t want to hold my hand anymore.
Lots and lots of tofu just waiting to get pan-fried and mixed together with shallots, ginger, garlic, and tomatoes for vegetarian Bahn Mi sandwiches for the yoga retreat. I had three pans going to do the work and between a non-stick, stainless steel, and cast iron, the cast iron did the best job.
The makings of Spice Crispies – a new favorite snack.
The Bainbridge ferry pulling into the Seattle waterfront. So beautiful and ghostly. More on the retreat in my next post.
