Swimming. So far so good: lap lanes kept for lap swimming as long as
someone is using it to swim laps (so one is not dodging kids now
that school is out) and I've really appreciated that.
I have found the two above Trader Joes products to be perfect
for bathing after being in a clorine pool.
My hair does not look like a burnt out dry mess and I admit
I just LOVE that shower gel... :)
it is a lot louder now that the kids are out, but I am happy to see
so many having fun in good healthy ways....
I saw the man paint a bit of the mural on the bodega today,
he was using spray paint! I was surprised but I guess I should not have been...
I was able to tell him how much I liked it, esp the sun and clouds he did on it
(will have to show you a picture of that later, as I don't have a picture of that yet).
So a friend has been in surgery for hours now.
This candle below (the one on the right)
is still burning bright for her...
As well as for a friend's child...
it is wonderful that we can pray for others!
I was very happy to see that health cooking includes food I want to eat!
Of course these cookbooks are not new,
but I am more of an old fashion type cook... so this is right up my ally!
I found in the pasta book a pasta that sounds perfect for a special
feast day fish day meal... with scallops, white wine and arugula!
I wrote it down for a possible option for our Slava (our family Saint's day celebration)
for, God willing, 2020 as it is on a Wednesday (and thus a fish day)...
(Orthodox Christians usually are vegetarian or vegan on Wednesday
and Fridays other than a few fast-free weeks/year.
Did you know that all Christians used to do this fast, many centuries ago?
I find that fascinating on many levels).
Cleo the Cranky Gourmet. I love her though. Very much.
I rearranged my cookbooks... still can get them all in the 2 shelves...!
I have been enjoying a multigrain bread I had bought and froze
these last few days, so good toasted!
This (above) was dinner.
Mr Husband ate at work and is almost home now,
as the PATH train was out of service and he waited till the crazy wait was over.
I feel some worries about the world at large
though not specifically about myself
and it takes effort to not let these worries consume me sometimes.
I have been trying to decide if I should stay home tomorrow or go to my library in NYC.
Jury's still out on that one.
I can hear my Husband on the steps so by for now!
May God have mercy on us and save us!
