My Week: Recovery

Monday evening I don’t know what made the difference but I had a lot more energy this afternoon. Maybe it was because I didn’t work at the hospital today. When I come home from work, I’m pretty much tied up in knots and stress can be exhausting. At any rate, I told about my gardening […]

The Raw Vegan: Part CXXI, Aftermath

The horror of the day would never end. Some people thought it was more personal for me than it really was. My phone rang off the hook with calls inquiring about DD’s safety. Time after time, I would say, “She’s fine. She isn’t in New York yet. She is still in California. Her flight is […]

My Week: Car Repairs

The Raw Vegan: Part CXIX, A Happy Birthday

It was edging into July and I had been invited to DS1’s place for the 4th of July. My granddaughter’s birthday is on the 3rd so I went down on the 4th Eve so I could be there for her special celebration—the annual fireworks display at the university. On the way, the odometer in my […]
