:: While shopping for Gary's birthday bonsai at the nursery last week, I couldn't resist taking home some cut pussy willow branches and a cute little shamrock. Bringing the seasons indoors sure brings me pleasure.
:: the college recruiters are trying to lure Eliza these days.
:: as we were later walking back to the car, he suggested that we should try making some knishes. I had no idea how, but I was up for the challenge this afternoon when he came home from school. The dough reminded me of noodle making. The recipe we used called for a filling of mashed potatoes, parsley, and caramelized onions. Simple enough. Sort of rolled up jelly-roll style on the prepared dough, the little savory bundles turned out very delicious.
I don't think he'll forget how to spell "knish" ever again!
:: the kids and my parents gathered with us Sunday night to celebrate the "birthday twins". A Mexican feast, angel food cake with whipped cream and strawberries (a tradition for Gary), homemade (vegan) strawberry ice cream, laughter and story-telling made for such a good time together.
:: it felt so good to "shake it up" at Zumba class this morning! The first real head drencher in a year. :) I took things at my own pace, feeling so good to move my body this way. I can really see improvement from the three weeks I've been going to physical therapy. The three-days-a-week sessions will continue for a while more and I'm loving and so appreciating the support, care, and healing I'm receiving there.
Feeling so much happiness these days.
