Making it real.

29 Jan

In keeping with some advice I’ve recently given a few people in my family, I am committed to giving my goals a chance to survive beyond the time the sound of the spoken word has faded.  In other words, make it real by doing it, just do it.  So, instead of waiting for a better camera, or Faulkner-like inspiration to hit, I’m going to continue write and take pictures because I said I would, because I believe that being creative and connected to my many passions will help to heal my broken heart, cancer is a bitch.

So here’s what I’ve been up to; working on some new menu ideas for a friend who owns two very cool bowling/pool/ping pong lounges.  I spent most of a snowy Saturday menu testing, delicious, (thanks to my taste testers, Danielle, Joe and DR), I think I’ve come up with a few good ideas.  See picture of slow roasted pork sammy with apple butter mayo. tri-coloured slaw, roasted peppers and onions and melted provolone cheese.  We ate/sampled everything else before I managed to take more pics.

Also, today bought a very sweet Waterloo County Windsor chair.  (also see pic.)

Since my Mom died, I’ve been having a really hard time concentrating on things beyond 5 or 10 minutes, so books are problematic, but magazines are ok, in particular, decorating magazines.  My Mom’s genius/passion was decorating, I look around my house now and I see how much she had influenced me.  Before she died we talked a lot about redecorating/painting my house, I have begun to think about it and plan and to honour her I’m going to write about it.  She told me that after she was gone, I would have to “get on with my life.”

One word, one meal, one day at a time.
