Fabulous 50's

I’ve decided not to go on the six-week European trip.  Instead, I’m going to get a job and spend more quality time with my husband.  I’ve been searching for a while now…perhaps going through a mid (or maybe later) life crisis.  Feeling that I have to fit everything in now.  I typically had jobs/careers that offered one or two weeks of vacation per year and while my son was growing up, the time was spent going to Myrtle Beach or boating/camping.  When I finally was able to travel for longer periods of time…I went a little “hog-wild”!

We’ve all heard “Balance is important in life” or “All things in moderation” and I haven’t been living my life in balance lately.  So…having recognized that, I’m now going to change it.  It’s O.K. to travel and have fun, but for me to feel fulfilled, I realize I need a purpose.  I enjoy…

The counter space at home is rather limited, consequently, our cutting board is also on the smallish side. I’ve tended to use kitchen knives that are about six inches. When I started helping in Chef’s kitchen, the six inch knife was too small. It was suggested I pick up a chef’s knife, minimum eight inches. I picked-up one French chef’s knife and one santoku.

I’m more used to to the santoku knife but the French knife is more useful at the kitchen since I seem to do more chopping at the kitchen.

Every time I hang out with any of my friends that are pregnant, this feeling of impending doom washes over me. This last weekend, I was seemingly surrounded by pregnant chicks. Outnumbered, if you will. Then I remembered that I have two other friends, who were not present that are also pregnant. That’s FOUR FRIENDS, all of them an incubation chamber.  Something about pregnancy feels contagious. Then, i realized…that it IS. You can’t help but feel like you may be next…

Pregnancy is absolutely contagious. If you already have a child, or children…you know how it works. You see all your friends being happy, and excited, and knocked up, and looking forward to the rest of their lives. With more kids. Even if you don’t have kids, you can’t tell me that hanging out with friends who DO have kids doesn’t make you think twice. You see that whole happiness…

Tending the Garden

June in Ithaca.  For the past week or so, all I have been able to think about is strawberries.  I wasn’t even sure if it was strawberry season, but I couldn’t stop thinking about them.  And sure enough, this week at the farmers’ market there were the first little baskets piled high with them.  I bought some and most of them were tiny, and they were all different shapes.  I ate all of them, plain, in one sitting.

There was also a strawberry festival about a half an hour away yesterday, and John obligingly took me to it.  I sort of imagined that the festival would involve booths and tables replete with the freshest red strawberries, and happy people just eating strawberries out of the little turquoise baskets or maybe eating some very fresh food made with the strawberries, and red sticky strawberry juice dripping down everyone’s fingers to their…

So, the other day I posted about an unusual event that occurred to me.  On what had been an otherwise unremarkable morning, I sat outside and watched as the gorgeous clear blue sky above me just exploded…..and then things got really weird. Over the next three days, I experienced what I can only call overwhelming visual hallucinations. They intensified at times and even kept on coming when I closed my eyes. I saw what I have come to call light trails emanating from my fingers and even from inanimate objects. My normally clear visual field became obstructed with dark jagged black edges and even changed background colors. Sometimes the whole world looked like it was bathed in red light…..other times it was a bluish green. There appeared to be swaths of grayish fog that would drift across my viewing screen…..vibrating fog no less.

Before I go on, I want…

Who doesn’t love some clouds to add interest to a photo? I’m still getting use to the weather and the way the clouds behave here. For some reason, the clouds these past few days have been hanging out above the town or to the north. They certainly look cool, but it means I have to drive to the other side of the valley to shoot them…not that a 10 minute drive is a big deal.
