Day One



1. Yoga class, including a 30-minute, very intense, eye-opening meditation

CHECK

2. Lunch with good friend (goat cheese sandwich with lots of vegetables and yogi iced tea)

CHECK

3. Leisurely errand running with nowhere I needed to be.

4. Late afternoon with Sophie and an unfortunate really huge seizure

CHECK

5. Late afternoon visit from two girlfriends who joined me in Sophie's room as she recovered. Lots of laughter.

CHECK

6. Asparagus and fried eggs and toast with Sophie -- a dinner that I'd never get away with if The Boys were here

CHECK

7. Two glasses of a delicious bottle of Lambrusco which tasted a bit like champagne and a bit like fruity wine and the always pleasurable company of one of my oldest friends, D.

  5. Good for you!!!!! I'm sorry to hear about Sophie's seizure. But how wonderful that you were able to surround yourself with nourishing activities and good company. I can't wait to hear about day 2! Hugs, Louise

  6. Fabulous.

    except for the horrid seizure, of course.

    and I know what I'm making myself for lunch. Eggs and asparagus are two of my fav. foods.

    I wonder how Sophie processes the difference in the house.

  7. A day in your life...the calm and the storm...and what would life be without friends to support you and your family...a seizure I can't even imagine. Even though it has become a part of your life for your dear daughter is has to be so scary...you are a strong woman...

  9. Despite the seizure- it sounds like a beautiful day. I wish I could send you some of my eggs for one of those perfect meals.

  10. ZOMG! when I was a little girl we used to have that for lunch in Spring. The asparagus were steamed a bit and then put under the broiler with olive oil and grated Padano and a couple of perfectly fried eggs were sitting on top to be eaten with great alacrity and pane paisano.

    You are cruel, here I am unable to eat and there you are, counting money in front of the poor. But I love you anyway,
