Cabbage (rose)- Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
I was wondering what to say tonight. The days have been long and colder than I like, the nights and mornings darker, the stars bright. Tomorrow is a day off. I need one.
Christmas is starting. We have decorated trees up. The Holiday boxes are in the annual house with the bundles of balsam. I am told I am to "crank out" boxes on Sunday when I work. I am actually quite pleased to be making boxes.
Today Z worked his last day with us. He leaves in a few days for the Air Force (which will someday pay for his college education). He is apprehensive but knows he can't just stand in one place. He needs to move forward--to wherever forward leads him. I am reminded of how scary that feels. I hugged him goodbye. He's a good boy.
My co-worker read my aura today. Bright red, bright orange and lemon yellow. Good things. Positive things overall. I do have a fear of loss. I have lost too many people, too soon. I don't like it.
I am an enthusiastic, energetic individual with unfinished projects-- what you see is what you get.
I had cold roasted beets (so dark earthy and sweet) with fresh mozzarella, olive oil and balsamic vinegar for lunch today. The beets stained the white cheese a lovely rose pink. I am lucky enough to have more roasted beets in the fridge for tomorrow's lunch as well. I read about a roasted beet hummus but don't think I will make it.
I have two books to read. Plants to get into the ground. G has leaves to collect. Winter is close. I can feel it.
