Comfort Food

I have today off, so I decided to make Pot Roast. It takes forever so I can never make it on days that I work. I went and bought some crusty sour dough bread and a large chunk of beef from the supermarket, chopped up some veggies, and threw it all together with some wine and spices. It’s simmering on my stove now, filling the apartment with warmth and good smells.

I also bought plums, pears, pomegranates, and a tiny pumpkin. They are on my kitchen table.

I spent all day cleaning my house, grocery shopping, cooking…anything to keep me busy. I still can’t stop thinking about my Dad. He’s sick. I’ve always felt like he’s bullet-proof. I can’t wait to see him. He’s being really strong in a scary situation. I want to write a book about him. His life has been a crazy interesting adventure so far…so many twists and turns, saving lives, fatherhood, moving around, going to rock concerts in San Francisco during the 1960’s, (he saw all the big names) his crazy jobs, his love for my mother…he’s an awesome guy.

I work at 5:30 in the morning tomorrow. There are still stars out when I drive to work. I need to fall asleep early tonight or I’ll be exhausted all day tomorrow. 

I spend a lot of time thinking of the house I’ll have someday. I want a beautiful light aqua bathroom with a huge bath tub, a kitchen with all kinds of kitchen gadgets, a garden with a bird feeder…maybe a rescued Boston terrier like this little guy. <–

REMEMBER: NEVER BUY A CAT OR DOG!!! 25% OF ALL DOGS IN SHELTERS ARE PUREBRED!!! PLEASE SAVE A LIFE!!!

It’s very important to take time to relax and reflect. I think I’ll take a bubble bath and relax. I’m going to listen to the classical radio station because of the lack of commercials. I used to paint. I think I’ll start again.
