Al made a lovely shortbread dessert on the Fourth in Oklahoma City.
If there is anything I love it is a shortbread anything. Butter. Butter. Carbs.
Last night a dear friend of Zach’s came for a visit. She is a vegan. Zach prepared the dinner which was a sweet potato topped with chickpeas and more. There was a nice white drizzle of I don’t know what on top and it was very good.
I said I’d make dessert. My friend Abby is a careful eater and suggested a simple Tofu and Semi sweet chocolate( dairy free) chip mix mousse. That’s a mouthful eh? Suffice to say it was a yummy dessert and I am not a tofu fan.
His friend brought another friend who we had never met. She was delightful. She spent 3 years in Japan as a new grad. I gave her Nancy’s blog site – to read her Foreign Fridays. She suggests everyone who can , travel in their 20s. She was in Japan due to her husband’s military deployment.
As a mom, I want my chicks near the nest. But, they are no longer chicks. It is good to hear that others who lived abroad relished their time there and grew. Nancy certainly is a good example of that on Wyoming Breezes.
While I waited for
Fireman and Zach to return from Kayaking the other day, I knitted just a bit. I fear you are going to go batty watching me knit this shawl. It is all I want to knit. But as I sat there alone, I saw a man go into the woods on the trail there and my radar went off. He looked a bit sketchy which is not really fair. Anyhow, I gathered my knitting and was headed back to my car to wait, when my family turned the river bend and I was with them again. My mom and my friend Sandy are always reminding me to be alert and be careful. Even out in the country. I don’t like to be fearful, but I just had that feeling…that we are supposed to listen to. Have you listened to your radar? I hope so.
