Post 200, Let's get ready to ramble...

Can you believe it? 200? Not good at long term commitment so this is a big deal. Ya know what else is a big deal? I am now the parent of a 29 year old man. How can that be?
We celebrated with the best Shrimp Creole I made for Fat Tuesday. I made it from the same recipe I always use but somehow, this was the best. And these fabulous fruit tarts from the favorite desert place. And then with eggs Benedict and then... well you get the picture...
Wasn't this the most perfect sliver of a moon? We have had such a gray and cloudy sky all week long and I was delighted to have one long walk on the one clear almost perfect night and have this as my companion.
All of the holidays were celebrated...went to the Chinese Cultural Center to ring in the new year, these lovelies came to me on Valentine's day, I made yummy Shrimp Creole on Mardi Gras and for President's day, well, I shared their pictures all over town. Does that count as a celebration?
I've been collecting signs since last we spoke, love this old one but my very favorite was one that I was not allowed to photograph. It was behind the counter at a restaurant...in hand made letters it said: "Margret's 17th birthday is on February 21...that's right... 17...it still means 10-20 years" Apparently Margret's too grown up for her own good!
There's lots more to tell of what happened while I was breaking but it will have to wait...as will 6 senses Sunday...but I'm back in the online world and I've missed you all but have to tell you, I got an embarrassing number of things checked off that to-do list while not on line so now I am striving for what's the word??? Oh yeah, b a l a n c e... wish me luck!

Darling, darling of mine. You are a true friend and your words bring comfort in this, my very unbalanced time. Sending you a hug from here with much love.

That dessert looks pretty wonderful. Lets meet for a visit and I'll treat you to another one. Just name the day, my little pretty. I'll swing by and pick you up.

Balance? Oh please.

Paula Scott said...

Balance? Is it really possible? Congrats on the 200th post! Remember, balance is like maintaining the speed limit. So, there's 'wiggle' room!

Hugs!
