Keeping Tally (Update 2)


, , , , , , ,

The original post was  made on 9 September 2017. Additions to the list of family deaths—over a span of about 410 days (1 year, 1 month, 2 weeks) were made on January 5th of this year.

I am sorry to add another name to the list, but aunt Norma died this morning, and the funeral is to take place early in the coming week. She celebrated her 100th birthday, 18 January, with a party given for her at her church on January 14. Al has one aunt still living, and so do I.

waking too early
to the familiar smells…
my favorite breakfast


WP Weekly Photograph Challenge: Awakening.

I downloaded pages from the New York Times “Cooking” section on how to cook new-to-me protein that would not run afoul of my low-carb/high protein diabetic diet guidelines: how to cook beef tenderloin and the various ways of preparing salmon fillets, including buying guidelines. Frequent sales on salmon at both of the groceries where we shop.
