Back to reality

Saturday, June 13, 2015

It's been such a nice, too-short visit with my mother. She's recovering from her fall last week - she's still bruised and swollen, but not so scared to leave the house. I've taken her for walks yesterday and today, and she has plans to resume some of her outside activities on Monday.

My sister took me to the wharf today and we bought live prawns from a fishing boat. She cooked them for dinner and they were *amazing*. I also cooked another 2 dungeness crabs. We had more snow peas picked from my mother's garden, along with another veggie dish. My tastebuds are happy, but my digestive system is feeling a little overworked!

Tomorrow I fly back home. It'll be back to the stress of regular life. Also the reality of no fresh shellfish!

    They are much worse things to over do on that seafood and snow peas. So glad you're having such a good visit, a little vacation. Recharge before you go back to the real world! --Pam

    Well, it's better to overwork your digestive system with crab and snow peas than with the stuff I overwork mine with--beer and Cheezits. Ha ha. The culinary delights you're experiencing have made me jealous, Bemused! Makes me want to start a vegetable garden. First, though, I guess I should try to tackle the knee-high weeds in my yard.

    I'm so glad you've had such a good visit with your family. Even though regular life is stressful, there are good things about routine, too. I know in some ways you'll be very glad to get home! And you're family will be so glad to have you back!

    eta: Well, not Cheezits because I can't get them here, but something similar. You know what I mean.
