{pretty, happy, funny, real} Emphasizing “Real” edition

Amazing that the pansies could be planted out almost a month earlier than usual!


This is The Husband, a volunteer firefighter. He is HAPPY because the department just got a new rescue truck. Or maybe it’s a tanker. No, I think it’s a rescue. Anyway, he’s HAPPY!


One of the great things about having a husband who sometimes works from home is being able to have breakfast together. On this day, I made spinach omelets, and when I looked down at them after sliding the second one onto the plate, I just thought they looked like the two of us somehow. The one on the left is the husband. He’s calmer, more sedate, and filled with a moderate amount of spinach — just a little of his personality is showing, which is only fitting. I’m on the right — overfull, busting out on all sides. You might need to know us to find this amusing, but it’s my blog, after all.

Real is yesterday’s essay in the Balancing Balance series:When Changes Come — Staying Light on My Feet.

Does anybody else see personality analysis in their food, or is it just me?

    Oh, yes. Joy and I often arrange food on the plate to present personalities. 🙂 Have a wonderful day, Lori. I’m looking forward to seeing you April 6.

    You make a beautiful omelet, Lori!! And your analogy is pretty cute.
