The other day I woke to a very wonderful surprise in my comments, a fellow blogger Terryb at “Through The Lens Of My Life” had nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award and it just about brought me to tears. To receive this nomination is for me a great honor, it felt like I had just been nominated for an “Oscar” :D Thank you Terryb for thinking my blog was lovely, I really do appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. Now before I burst into tears, lets get on with it.
Yeah it’s been one of those months where its like I’m running around and nothing seems to be moving or getting done.
I’m trying to get my finances back in order after being off for so long, the car is having issues, trying to work on recipes and write (who knew writing recipes would be tough especially when you don’t normally use measurements to cook…go figure)……doing a major job search (I’m ready to find something else to do with my life, that doesn’t involve standing all day).

So this past weekend I decided to make a big pot of Chicken noodle soup since I had some leftover chicken in the freezer that I had roasted the week before and figured it would be a good way to use it up.
I used my mom’s recipe up to a point and just threw in some other things that I had laying around and turned it into an amazing creamy soup, this one I will have to make again and try different greens to see how the flavors turn out. Continue reading
Daily Prompt: In Transit
Train on bridge
Train stations, airport terminals, subway stops: soulless spaces full of distracted, stressed zombies, or magical sets for fleeting, interlocking human stories?
Sitting at the airport working on my newest blog entry, listening not to the canned music that’s being piped in all over the place, instead I’ve got my favorite cd in: Il Divo and I’m just chillin, watching the people go by, wondering where they are going and where they’ve been….some dressed in business clothes others in casual clothes, each with their own thoughts and feelings as they come and go.
It’s funny I will most likely never see any of these people again but somehow at this very moment, in this space and time we have all managed to cross each others paths without even realizing that we ever existed. Continue reading
