I made crock pot leek soup for dinner tonight, French Onion Soup style with yummy bread and cheese on top. Thanks Jamie for the inspiration to make it happen.
I hate that time when you realize library books have to go back and you're only halfway through them. I have been working through Make It Mighty Ugly which has been very emotionally tough but I made a breakthrough the other day. I started watching Downton Abbey and went through extreme depression and heartbreak and love as I watched it, which always happens. I realized that so much of who I used to want to be and who I was is caught up in this gremlin that makes me feel like my life today is worthless. I should be a poet and wear only skirts and be lost on the moors or something. It's an idealized version of me during a time I actually wasn't that happy. So now I can watch Downton and embrace the romantic in me without cutting myself down. That! Was a hard one.
