November 4th

Grace in Small Things

1) My Dad would have been 91 years old today. I miss him every day. He is still a presence in my life. He taught me how to drive many years ago. My first driving lesson was in the Texas Instrument's parking lot on a Sunday afternoon! I then graduated to the Kroger parking lot. When I am tooting around town he is still sitting beside me giving me little hints and telling me horror stories about flipping a car over when you sneeze (the newfangled power steering!lol) and all sorts of dogma that he pounded in my head that I still heed today. Happy Birthday Dad, I hope you are having a marvelous celebration up in the heavens.
2) Made more granola and did not scorch it this time. It was kick ass good!
3) I usually work at the Bucket on Thursday nights. It is a horror night of floor moves and price changes. It's nice.
4) Made blackened salmon because I found the box of spices from The Fresh Market (a moment of silence here for my roughing it in an area without one single alternative food market! I have to drive into (shudder) Nashville for anything that resembles a Fresh Food.
5) Cleaning the closet.

Haha. I get number 3; I'd feel the same.
And I am so in touch with number 1.
