Anniversaries. I don’t go overboard for the required celebrations (other than my 40th birthday, ha). Oh, John and I saw an amazing movie (Into the Wild), followed by a lovely dinner tonight, in the bar at La Belle Vie (always a winner) to celebrate our 5th annivesary. But the forced part of it, that this should be an amaaaazing night, better than all others, meh. Rather unromantic, I know. But I’m not that uber-romantic girl. I don’t love surprises. Plus, romance requires a certain amount of sentimentality, don’t you think? And I’m too practical to be terribly sentimental. The day-to-day is where the pedal meets the metal! Our weekly Date Nights are really fun to me, because they’re not forced, we just go with what sounds good. Spontaneity that I have a say in, much more my (sometimes cranky, often controlling) style, ha.
So…sorry to have been absent for more than a week! Sheesh! Not cooking terribly interesting things – the Good Calories Bad Calories book has me thinking – a lot – about grains and sugar. Hmmm…especially in light of diabetes in my family, and other health issues, just a lot to think about. A bit of an awakening, perhaps. Doesn’t change things terribly much, but while I’m all contemplative and such, I tend to withdraw. Hmmm…
Hope all is well with you!
