Sometimes life gets so busy, hectic and tiring, you forget things which are supposed to be important. Writing in this journal is so important in my days, but last night I opened my iPad to discover I hadn’t opened it since Monday and had not written in my journal either. And I have to recollection of why I didn’t, except that busy life excuse (reason?). Somthere is no Day 20, 21, 22 or 23 in my Remembrance journal month. 😔
This week has been crazy and I’ve fallen into bed exhausted every night….one night I even chose sleep over food, so that says a lot!! I’ve had some mom and dad memories, but they also escape my thoughts today as I’m sitting here; for that I feel bad.
But….what’s done can’t be changed so today I am writing in the morning while I am relaxing. Truth be told, I don’t really plan on moving from this spot if possible; it’s rest day for me. It’s a very cool day here, almost feels like a crisp fall morning, and it instantly takes me to memories of my mom. I wrote earlier in the month about baking bread on cool days; today being a Saturday, mom would probably be roasting something in the oven; a chicken or roast, maybe lasagna. It would definitely be dinner that comes out of the oven tonight.
Even though we have air conditioning in our house, I do the same thing. When it’s a cool day, I switch my brain to “what can I cook in the oven”. Today I chose steel head trout and asparagus for dinner. The house will be warm and the food will be delicious. Stay warm today!
