Despite the snow it was great to get out for a little coffee date with myself. Well, myself, May Sarton and Lynda Barry. Both of these ladies are great company! I can't believe I'm still reading Journal of a Solitude but at least I'm still enjoying it too. And I just love Syllabus. I'm reading it slowly too because there's so much to take in and think about!
Feels like our very snowless January is coming to an end! Lots came down today and it's gonna be chilly out tomorrow. Sigh. So hard to plan stuff when the weather always gets to have ultimate say!
Amazing how the search for a smoked ham hock turned into something so moving. I've been thinking of mom all week and making this soup (and finally having light to do a photoshoot of it) made me feel closer to her. It's from the Latvian Cooking cookbook. I don't have Mom's soup recipe on-hand and I think it has cabbage in it which Reg can not tolerate the smell of. I uploaded the video and wrote the post.
