Always chaotic as I pack to leave Colorado…this time especially. Cadence sadness of course.…just cleaned out the many bowls of food in the fridge I’d fixed to tempt her to eat.
Life uncertain in many areas.
Cleaning helps when I’m frazzled. First up was the freezer—anyone for two-year-old Strawberry sorbet? Steaks THREE years old? Frozen brown bananas? At least I think they’re bananas.
In the pantry: Marshmallows expired in March, 2011. Grape jam September, 12, 2010.
THREE boxes of tapioca? One is almost empty, but still….
Meantime, I’m trying to eat up the good stuff. Magic bacon. Veggie sausage patties. Farm eggs. Tangerine marmalade.
By breakfast this morning, most things were gone. No milk. For coffee I need milk.
Cherries? Forget it, those cherries are a pleasant memory. No bananas. None of the frozen blueberries I’ve been putting into my oatmeal. And the oatmeal: gone. No fruit of any kind.
This morning for breakfast it was sugar peas, iced tea, and toast.
I skipped the fresh garlic.
More sugar peas.
