Meals on Wheels

So my Thanksgiving is being defined by the amount of hours I am working.  It was to my surprise and delight that I got a text from shush now stating she was bringing me food.
Lindsey and our friend Megan and their youngest came and brought goodies (which were yummy), and hung out and talked for a while, which was great!
It's good to have friends that care.
And are handy in the kitchen 🙂

Weekend update

Ok, so I left you mid way through the week of classes.
Class was interesting.  The three highlights?
Creating a 'themed' menu for Rusty Shackleford's seafood restaurant.  (Props if you can figure out the reference).
Having an instructor who loved boxers and therefore thought Toby was a gem.  And he is. He is the most adorable and

sarcastic dog ever

Third highlight.  At the end of the week of classes the instructor took me aside and told me he really appreciated my insight, and what I had brought to the table that week.  I thought it was rather sweet.  Then he said it out loud to the whole class that he really appreciated what I had contributed and the insight I had brought.  He didn't single anyone else out like that (except for thanking the two guys he picked on for being such good sports).  I was pretty nonplussed.  I didn't think I brought too terrible much.  Made me feel good though.

Then came the fun!
I had a wonderfully time with JennyExiled and Kelly.  If you don't know them you should.  They are swell.  We had good talks, good bonding with Sam, 5 (I'm sticking by my number ladies) cosmo's each, and FABU sushi!  Plus 'Weeds' so how can you go wrong.  Then Kelly and I had a wonderful and long and meaty conversation on the phone which helped keep me awake on the way to see Artzy Carmen.  BTW we did go see Kelly's place of work, and walked in a circle like 5 times.  We met 3 people that are Sam's favorite person in the world. And you can see the great pics of us on Jenny's Vox.

I spent the rest of the weekend with Carmen, her husband, and two lovely dogs.  I was very impressed with the view and the KITCHEN was phenomenal.  So clear that it had a lot of sweat equity.  Well done.

Plus we got to sing together, which was exciting, and also just be, and talk about life, and where we are, and what is holding us back, and politics, and music, and Zion, and knowing who you're meant to be.  It was good.  I miss that.

Then I drove home, stopping to sleep in Ohio, and went directly to my mentoring group, then to momentum, then to my friend Margaret's house for an all night LOTR marathon. YES the extended versions.  Caught a few hrs of sleep, went to book club, and finally, to bed around 6 on Tuesday eve.  Back now to the grindstone for me.
