There Are Days

Friday, April 23rd, 2010



There are times I think if someone really knew my life story, they would wonder why in the world I would even want to get up every morning and continue with it all.

 But I look at: 

my children
my grandchildren
my mother
my sister
my brother
my seniors at work
my co-workers
my friends
my backyard
my adirondak chair
my books
my art
my crafts
my comfy, cozy bed
my garden
my overstuffed, beat up old recliner

Yes, I made some awful choices, and some really horrid things happened to me, but through it all, no matter how far down I was, I could always say:

I love my life…………………

 I must admit I am so hooked on Jamie Oliver’s “Food Revolution”.

I haven’t cooked in years once the kids moved out and I was alone.  It was just too much bother to dirty up the kitchen when it was so easy to  pick up a sub or greasy cheeseburger on my way home from work, serving myself on a paper  plate. Plus most of my adult life was surrounded by fast foods and ‘junk’ snacks.  I really did not see myself changing things at this stage of the game……………………

Well, he actually has me thinking about cooking.  Yes, I pulled out the pots and pans and dusted off my dishes…………………I am off to Borders with my handy, dandy little coupon in hand to pick up one of his cookbooks!!

Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks????

I just hope my stove still works………….
