I’m probably doing the #100DayProject this year. I have two ideas I and playing with: pictures of my everyday life or pictures/videos of acts of kindness.

1. The friend I’ve know the longest transitioned 12.6.20. 40+ years ago, we met in Balboa Park. That month on Normal St. changed the direction of my life. He was an awesome bnw photographer and taught me to create silver rings. He was an amazing man.

2. Each day is a magical portal, a gateway the Universe leaves open for us. Can you feel the infinite brimming over with possbilities? Now is the moment to fearlessly and shamelessly create your reality. Action or non-action, both create a future. Will you settle for the same old shift, or will you step into change?

3. The afternoon of January 6 was a time of much feeling. Attempted coup? Very unsettling things happened in D.C. I’d love to travel 100 years in time and read what history says about today.

Cooking banana bread in the slow cooker

4. My first slow cooker banana bread made using a yellow cake mix. This is a practice shot for #The100DayProject.

#100DayProject

I try to do this but I skipped 2020. One more go this year.

Currently I’m thinking about photos documenting my daily life. Not sure. I may practice a bit before January 31.

It’s cold today and this has been my view.

Favorite Finds in December

4 Comments

1. An RV Christmas Tree. It is the first one in several years. Things are different, more magical, with a child on board.

2. This is the first time since the initial lock down the first of 2020 that I have lived close enough to a store that delivers or to any delivery service to have groceries delivered. I can truthfully say that I love having groceries brought to the door. That frees up a lot of time and limits risk. I could get spoiled.

3. I’ve been baking banana bread in my slow cooker. It’s easy and works well. My technique is improving with practice.

4. A vaccine in finally available. YAY. Vaxx Now

I hope you had great holiday. Wishing you all the best in 2021. I appreciate each of you. Your visits, likes, and comments help me feel meaningfuld. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. Vaxx Now

1. I’ve enjoyed my time in Gulf Shores. We’ve been here over a month. I plan to be here until the end of January.

2. Slow cooker banana bread round 2 is much better than round one. I would have a picture but the boy was standing there with a plate and a knife. Piping hot and he was cutting off pieces. I added cinnamon to this loaf.

3. Having temporary house guests, especially in an RV, definitely requires flexibility, tolerance, thinking different thoughts, love, and patience. It’s a great way to change the pattern of my everyday life and thoughts.

A New Year

Rather than making New Year’s resolutions, I want to try better self-care.

The Holidays

13 Comments

Once it was my favorite time of year, now the holidays are difficult for me. From Halloween until the New Year was joyous. Then my world and I changed.
Fifteen or so years ago my ex announced she wanted a divorce. That crushed my heart and my world. I’ve never found another person to share life. For a while I looked. That was a waste of time. I think finding another partner was never in the cards. I have accepted that.
Eleven years ago in late October and early November my parents died two weeks apart. They were the last spark of holiday joy. My mom was the spirit of Christmas in our family.
My children were grown and gone. With my wife and children gone and my parents gone I can’t muster up any holiday cheer though I try.
There is so much grief associated with holidays.

This year I’ve gotten a holiday cheer boost. A child is spending November and December in the rig. He brings his own holiday joy and it’s contagious I need more new good Christmas memories like this.

I read somewhere one should name their holiday grief. Name it and honor it. This year my holiday grief is the memories of good Christmas celebrations in my parent’s home. I’ll light a candle and place it on the not-an-altar.

I feel like I’m rambling so I think I’ll stop.

1. Today the Blackstone 17” Griddle arrived. I am excited about this upgrade to the outside cooking trip. I need to do some minor assembly and then season the cooking surface before I can try it out.

2. I seasoned the griddle this afternoon.

It’s seasoned. Next step is cooking something.

3. A grand experience/experiment. I cooked banana bread in a slow cooker.

It came out good. I over cooked it a bit. I don’t bake so I went too long. It passed the 11 year old boy test. He ate several pieces. He suggested adding vanilla and cinnamon and using a different recipe that included butter.
