1. Browned pork and ground beef with candied onion and garlic, poured chicken broth,crushed tomatoes and water over it, threw in some celery, carrots, sliced mushrooms and a couple of fresh tomatoes, added some salt, pepper, and oregano, boiled some fusilli, combined it all in the crock pot, and -- wow! soup.
2. Snug has had a good-boy-on-the-leash breakthrough and our walk today had a good pace, a good rhythm and Snug is helping me get some productive exercise. And he's getting some productive exercise.
3. I care a lot about an old friend (not a Kellogg old friend) and this old friend and I grew apart and with a heavy heart and free of ill feeling, I consciously let go of this dormant friendship today. Should the distance of space and spirit close, should we ever have the opportunity to find commonality again, I'd love to be friends again. The letting go is sad -- but beautiful. It's right.
