what i eat for lunch every weekday

When people find out how restricted my diet is (I'm vegetarian and don't eat refined sugar, gluten, eggs or most dairy), they want to know what I *do* eat. And a lot of people are intrigued by the fact that I eat (homemade) soup every day for lunch. So I made this recipe video to show you how I prepare delicious soup every weekday morning for my bag lunch.

You're welcome.

spring equinox

The same night I took some photos of canning jars in my back room, I sat in one of my rocking chairs and tried to ignore the awful migraine that was bouncing around inside my head... and in a spare moment, I enjoyed the sunset, as seen through my northwest window.

Since the time change, my back room has become one of my favorite places to be in the early evening. I love watching the light go from golden daylight to even more golden pre-dusk, and then fade imperceptibly to silvery pre-night.

I realized with a shock the other night that I will be able to enjoy this same light from this same spot in this same room SIX MONTHS FROM NOW. Which is pretty awesome. Here's to six months of light enjoyment.
