Long day

A difficult day. When I got home I combined leftover spaghetti (two meatballs) with some leftover chicken soup, added a cup of cilantro and a handful of grated cheddar. It might sound awful but it was delicious and I don’t think solely because of the day I’d had.

My sister’s in the hospital again.

After the soup I really indulged. Butterscotch, raspberries and vanilla ice cream.

No wonder I didn’t have dinner!

For months my sister badgered me to sign up for Acorn TV. I resisted. We have Netflix and Amazon Prime — what did I need Acorn for? Well, this past week, K and I finally subscribed — mostly so we could watch new Vera’s (love Vera. She looks like my Nana Jacques. She doesn’t take shit from anyone). Saw those and moved on to Loch Ness — a creepy good six parter with lots of twists and turns.

I can’t wait to recommend it to my sister. She will love it, too.

    Dee~ I’m so, so sorry. Your ice cream looks so good, now I’m craving some! We love Vera too. If I could only be that tough, bossy and always right! xo Hang in there Dee.

    Yay! Love Vera here in Aus too. Hope your sister recovers quickly. How long does it take to drive there? That sort of day is always exhausting so take time to look after yourself.

      It’s 40 minutes without traffic. An hour on an okay day and two full hours when traffic sucks. Mostly just shy of an hour.
