And this was all before noon, and thus invigorated & cleansed & now hungry, I made an awesome dish for lunch, spa/temple food... a stirfry of bok-choy, carrot, onion, peppers, garlic, ginger, seasoned with sesame oil and red-curry paste, steamed then in homemade chicken stock, & into the colorful melange at the end I tossed in shrimp til they turned pink -- the delicious concoction served, not over rice (I really am curtailing carbs, hard) - but pearl barley [I'm tired - I realize I almost typed 'pearl bailey' - remember her?] - which cooks up just like rice, and is high in fiber & protein. It was delicious. And D thought I was brilliant -- he was very impressed with the pearl-barley innovation, which I think I might actually prefer to rice - or certainly to the indifferent starchy gummy flavorless stuff, white or brown, one gets with Chinese take-out. Anyway - recommended!
I wonder where you are, darling - are you home? I imagine you might be, for this week. Oh good, then just a touch closer to me... at least I don't need a passport, or a visa...
The way you suggest - as I imagine you in your private treehouse space high atop your garage (I hope that happened) -- it's just what I imagine -- I love it that way too ---
have a wonderful evening, dearest love
