- I'm thinking how lucky I am to have such wonderful international students. We had a day of wandering and eating in the city on Saturday -- little unique shops on side streets, some of the best sushi I think Halifax has to offer (B-Well Shushi Cafe on Quinpool Road); Korean b-beque (2 hours of a carnivores delight plus the girls did all the grilling for me.) What a fabulous day we had!
- I'm thinking about Remembrance Day which reminds me of my paternal Grandpa. He was such a joy to be around -- happy, lively, loving. After I moved away from home, whenever I'd go home to visit, he'd dance and sing his way over to me and continue his dance and song while he pinched my cheeks and kissed me. He wouldn't talk about the "great war".
|Thank you Poppy for your sacrifice.|
- I'm thinking about Christmas -- not a lot yet, but I'm beginning my thought-organization process: letter writing, card addressing, gift wrapping, who I've still to buy for. If I organize my schedule, I find I have time to enjoy the other wonderful things that pre-Christmas has to offer.
- I'm thinking of sleep. Gaining an hour is great when you're young. If you're like most post-menopausal women my age, you wake at the same time; so readjusting to the time change is a sleepy pain in the butt.
|I wanted to fall back into bed.|
- I'm thinking of lunch. I've got half an hour to go: I've packed homemade beet salad, coleslaw and a mini-slider; dessert is Difuku, a Japanese sweet rice ball -- sweet red bean paste encased in pink-colored sweetened rice. (Very tasty .... and I've talked myself into believing that it's not dessert at all but a very nutritious "ending" to my meal.)
