Today was a quiet day. I thought I was going to be really depressed because of it being one year for Dad and a week for Joie, but I enjoyed the sunshine, did some shopping, chatted with a young woman I have been mentoring from the camp we cooked at several years ago and even had a nap.

Now I am making sandwiches for TB's lunch, I have put out his uniform and just have to get his bag ready for the morning as he leaves early. It is hard to believe the week is over and he has to go back to work, but it was great being together, getting taxes done, removing all of Joie's things and taking in the changes in our lives.

Some friends lived in Italy for 6 years and she has celiac disease (gluten intolerance). She could get all her food on prescription and it was paid for by the Italian government. Not only that, but they would "prescribe" too much and she had all this pasta and stuff left over! The pasta kept and she brought it home, but the breads, etc. wouldn't last. Here the items are very expensive.

At least now I don't lose or gain an hour while at work anymore. I don't miss 13 hour shifts.

Well, that's partly because DST comes earlier in the year than it used to a couple of years ago.

Goody! Daylight Savings in one more week!

I'm waiting for the morning sun to start it's yearly movement across my wall. My plants look like they're getting excited too. They're amazingly healthy looking for so little sunlight.

I'm cooking breakfast right now. Bacon, eggs and an enormous amount of home fries
The local store had spuds on sale yesterday, so I bought a 10 lb bag for $2.49 and they are the largest russets I have ever seen. Huge. I see some twice baked potatoes in my near future.
