Happy Monday ladies. We had a fun chat about our upper arms yesterday. The different ways we approach the subject is as varied as we are and fun reading here. I often think the comment section is the best part of this blog:) Here are a few things on my mind this week:
My daughter has been isolated in her apartment in Vancouver, B.C. for way, way too long. Because she has dual citizenship, she was able to cross the closed border and drive home this weekend. I couldn’t be happier! These are scary and sad times and I really needed to hug her. Because the drive takes longer than one day, my son and I drove to meet her at the halfway mark. We shared adjoining rooms at a motel then I drove the rest of the way home in her car. She will have to quarantine when she crosses the Canadian border but we all felt it was worth it to be together. On the drive down we listened to “Just Mercy” which is mind-blowing. It’s been named the most influential book of the decade and is one of the most powerful true stories I’ve ever heard. Bryan Stevenson is an attorney, social justice activist, and hero who has dedicated three decades to helping the poor, incarcerated, and condemned.
I finally got into my local Talbots on Friday, which felt like old home week. I was anxious to see new merchandise but the sales floor was still full of older merchandise. My favorite salesperson told me they’re in the process of opening boxes to get the new things on display so I’ll go back this week and try on some new things. Hopefully, I will able to do a dressing room diary.
Some new finds at Talbots
Do you remember that show? That’s what I am reminded every time I look at our new veggie boxes. I
think know my husband went overboard planting things but we had no idea how robustly things would grow! What we have the most of right now is zucchini and Summer squash. I’m talking about 12” zucchini and a lot of them. Everyday! I’ve ordered this spiralizer so we can start eating them as pasta but I need more ideas. I have no idea why I need 7 blades but I suppose it will make sense when it arrives. With things as they are, I can’t give them to neighbors and hate to have them go to waste! I’d love any recipes you can share.
When our tomato crop comes is I will have a much better idea what to do with it because we also have tons of basil:)
What’s keeping you busy these days?
Be well and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
