Let’s Do Brunch!

Brunch is a great when you want to have a lazy weekend and want to combine two meals into one.

The Soup Diva

One of my favorite meals to eat out is brunch. I can’t really offer a precise definition of this hybrid term, other than “in-between” – as the word itself is a cross between breakfast and lunch, so is the meal itself: either the cuisine, or the time of day, or both. Here, I present some of my favorite brunches from the past few years. Enjoy!

May my friends in the UK be safe and comforted during this time. Incidents like these happen far too often. I hope that as more is learned about this situation that justice will prevail.

Daily Prompt: Acceptance

I am a people pleaser, It’s a part of who I am. Acceptance is something many strive for because we want to be liked. I know what having a low self-esteem is like and I want to be sure others in my life are accepted for who they are. We live in a world where people are seeking community and connections so acceptance is vital to making them feel wanted and needed, I know I am.

Love and inclusion are in my mind essential parts of being human. As Sally Field once said in her Academy Awards acceptance speech “you like me, you really like me” and that is so important to be liked. I would also say don’t do something against your better angels in order to fit into a crowd that would be harmful, that’s not good for you.

Getting Well

Hello my friends! When you are sick you don’t feel like doing much of anything. Yesterday I felt dehydrated and really tired among other things. It seemed to be a virus of some sort but today I went to the doctor and they are treating it as if it were the flu. Thank goodness I have an ample amount of sick time at work so I could stay home yesterday and today to get well. Rarely do I get sick so this is a very unusual thing for me to be out two days in a row.
