A pretty pleasant day

Got a visit from our district manager. She was fun. I seemed to have run out of steam around mid day. Nothing that a nap after work didn't fix. Dinner tonight was left overs from last night but I also made some chicken salad that I will use for lunch tomorrow. I had dinner super early so I may have to sample the chicken salad before the evening is done. 
  My boss has invited me to spend some time with her and some friends at a cabin during July 4th.  I think I would enjoy it but socializing with one's boss has me perplexed. We shall see.

Tonight the menu is pan seared chicken breast, broccoli and cauliflower medley with cheese sauce and buttered noodles.  Dessert will be vanilla ice cream with fresh strawberries and blueberries.  I would have taken a pic but I was too hungry. 
  I had a shaky start this morning but my day turned out well.  It was in fact a most pleasant day. For that I'm thankful.

Roses are orange!

The rosebush in my yard was beautiful this year. I kind of hate to see the blooms drop off one by one. Maybe it will bloom more before the summer is over. 

Hello long lost blog

 Five years ago when I first moved to Washington , life had shook me up pretty badly  and I had lost all confidence in who I was.  I was a scared shadow of a person and I just needed some time to heal. My son and his family gave me that safe harbor and for 18 months I hardly left their home.  I was afraid of what might happen, but with time and courage and a push or two, I finally got back to living.
   Every since I was a little girl I've wanted to go to California.   So this summer I'm taking a road trip, right by myself, to visit a really special friend of mine who knows a lot about how to deal with what life can hand you, and who came into my life just when I needed an inspiration. Yep, she lives in California!  So not only do I get to cross off something on my bucket list, I get to spend time with a person I'm so happy to know and love.  I've come a long way in five years!
