I probably can’t remember where I was last Tuesday at 8:45 am, but I remember exactly where I was on September 11, 2001 when I heard the news.  I remember how I felt.  I remember the images.  I remember who I talked with and how my community processed it. Time stopped that moment and then everything was slow motion for weeks on end.

Time flew so fast; we arrived and within a blink of an eye we were gone. It’s like that every time I go see them

 Hi there, it’s been a long time. It’s been 34 years since well, since I was you. I’m sorry that I’ve taken so long to write but I thought it was time that I contacted you to tell you how life has turned out so far and to try share a little of the wisdom that I’ve gained over the years

 If I can do this one thing.     This one small thing.   Could it save this sweet face?  Give him/her chances s/he didn’t have before?

 It is one of my favorite foods in the world. However, I am very picky; I don’t like frozen burgers or pre-made burgers, and I only like to grill them.  As summer approaches, I see a lot of burgers in my the near future.
Over the years, I started experimenting with different ways to make the patty and different sauces. I want to share some of my favorite recipes.

It’s a question that was posed to me a few months ago and as a result, I’ve been walking every other week with a friend.  It is a time of encouragement, fresh air (although the weather seems to turn poor only on those walking days!), exercise, and sometimes general brain dumping about our lives.

Some days (ok – most days) I crave something sweet.  Typically, a small bite of chocolate will do the trick to satisfy my sweet tooth.  Other days, well, those times require a more decadent treat: warm, gooey, rich chocolate chip cookies straight from the oven.  Even better is a skillet cookie for two baked in my favorite vintage mini cast iron skillet.

“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo. 
“So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”

Who could use a hug? Warm soup is like a comforting hug from the inside. I love soup anytime but when the weather starts to cool, the cravings begin. My mind turns to thoughts of velvety bisques and brothy veggie packed bowls of deliciousness.
