I’m feeling elated. A 6:30 a.m. drive, delivering my son to work…sleepy-head chatting…setting the digital clock in the car…making observations of Deerfoot Trail at this time of day. A nice way to experience daylight savings time! Max and I stopped on the way home and stepped into the center of a huge field of crispy dry grass. As he bounded to and fro, I had time with the sky, the stars, bright studs in the darkness, revealing themselves more clearly, the longer I was present. I am so graced by morning.
Seated in the sixth row pew each Sunday, I have the chance to connect with my friend, Johanne. I seem to have a little home in that row, having always shared it with people like Carol and Adam and for years, Johanne, when she travels from Sudbury to make time for her Calgary children. Another beautiful homily was delivered by Father Cristino-Bouvette at Mass and such grace received in the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.
So many reasons today, to feel grateful…
I think that some of the joy I feel today is a result of the evening spent with my children. Family dinner was changed to Saturday and my daughter and her husband hosted. On the menu, a wonderful Jamie Oliver light caesar salad minus the anchovies. It is an excellent recipe! Try it!! We then put together our own home made pizzas on Cobs pizza bases. Topped with a lovely sauce, mozzarella cheese, mushroom, roasted bell peppers and artichoke, these were amazing. Yummers!
We followed good eats with a game of Ticket to Ride and all seemed well with the world! I knew I was returning home to a nice smelling dog, given the earlier Saturday afternoon shampooing at the Car-Dog Wash. A weekend doesn’t get much better than this!
