Letter-c Day 17

Last night’s vivid moon and I spent quality time together thinking about life in general after a short snooze. Things I wish I could undo or do differently. No different than you when in an introspective mood. That’s why I chose today’s song Hurt. I prefer Johnny Cash’s version versus the original version by Trent Reznor.  Introspection is good for the soul even if you’re not trying to cope with the letter-c.

“Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here”~ Johnny Cash

I woke this morning with Macavity nestled between my curled legs and Yeatsie at the lower end of the bed by Vic’s feet. I decided to watch them for a bit before stirring because it’s not often they’re both on the bed together. Macavity’s jealousy gets in the way. It saddens me that after all this time, he still feels so insecure.

I finished my healing shawl last night. I decided to add charcoal gray as the border. I’m really pleased with the results. It’s lighter than my pink shawl that I took with me during chemo last time so depending on the weather I’ll be prepared. My body was always so focused on fighting the chemicals inside me I could never get warm after so my shawls came in immensely handy during the treatment stage.


I can’t say it matches my bathrobe but physical appearances aren’t really important when it comes to the bigger picture.

I prepared cabbage, cauliflower and zucchini with olive oil, Italian seasoning and black pepper for Vic to grill last night while I made scrambled eggs. It tasted so delicious. Vic didn’t even complain that the majority of our meal was veggies.  I made vanilla biscuits for strawberry shortcake for dessert. I can’t believe in all the time Vic and I have been together I hadn’t made us strawberry shortcake. He loved it. ❤

I’m not a whipped creme fan, I prefer the biscuits immediately out of the oven with the strawberries with the sugar glaze on top. The sauce immediately soaks into the biscuit. Yummy!  The pain was so worth the enjoyment. I refuse to give up all of my enjoyment of food. I have modified a lot of my choices so I don’t suffer for hours on end.
