No matter what the day brings, deep down I know it really is a good day because I have the man of my dreams, a kitty who loves me, a roof over my head and I live in paradise.

"The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be only the beginning." - Ivy Baker Priest, was an author and activist.

I don't know if I over did with my food banking and gardening but I feel sort of out of it today. I spent the morning in my chair with the window open. I could feel the warmth of the sunshine as well as the cool breeze coming through the window. Plus, my neighbor, Mr. T, had his water fountain going and that was a lovely sound. During this time Bailey was in and out of my lap depending on his mood.

All of this was great until I smelled the odor of cigarettes. Okie dokie, my new neighbor is out in front of her apartment smoking. I'm not sure what to do about this except to close my window. I hope she doesn't plan to do that very often.

Other than that, I sat and read my current book, my daily spiritual readings, and called Al-Anon friends.

I did get busy and cleaned up the kitchen and started the dishwasher. Now I need to sweep the floor and that room is done for the day.

What I really need to be doing is some paperwork for the housing authority for our annual financial review. I find this so invasive but it what one must tolerate when living in public housing. I guess a small price to pay for affordable housing.

Okay, I'm back. I began filling out the forms referenced in the above-paragraph. My, oh my, the information they want. I worked on it until I began to feel anxious and then I stopped. I read some e-mail, played computer games, and read my book. Before, the week is out, I should have the questionnaire completed or almost completed.

I have to tell you, I actually cooked last night. I made a faux goulash, my style. We had some leftover rice and beans I cooked the day before.

- There was approximately 3 cups of each which I mixed together
- I added a can of cream of chicken soup plus the can of water
- 1/4 cup of diced onion
- 4 cloves garlic, chopped
- 2 cups of sliced mushrooms
- 1 tsp of pepper

I mixed this all together and then heated in the microwave. With the dish I was using it took a total of 12 minutes to heat the mixture all the way through. To my dish, I added a couple of shakes of salt. My, my but it was good. Michael liked it except for the mushrooms which he could set aside since I left the slices fairly large. From this dish I had 4.5 meals which I think is pretty good for leftovers and using up the mushrooms before they went bad.

Actually what was left of the mushrooms, Michael sautéed for me to go with my dinner tonight. Yum!

The wind was worse than ever today but the pleasant part was hearing my wind chimes by the front door.
