New Direction

It's been a tumultuous year so far. Earlier this year, things at P started going downhill, leading to my moving on. I got a great new opportunity at N, but after 2 1/2 months there and one big cross-country move from Colorado to Maine, I decided to be a housewife. It seems crazy to sum it all up in just 3 sentences like that, but there it is. Anyway, today I took some time out of unpacking to experiment in the kitchen with a salad dressing, so here's what I threw in there so that I don't forget:

1 ripe avocado
juice of 1/2 organic lemon
2 inch slice of cucumber, peeled
1/2 tsp turmeric
celery seeds
dried chives
1/2 tsp nutritional yeast flakes
very small garlic clove

It turned out a bright yellowy green, and was quite tasty, although O said it could use more salt.

We had it on a salad with some cooked tofu and that was our supper. Also today, we went for a drive up on top Cadillac Mountain (didn't think to wear a hat & it was COLD). Below you can see how our two tripod-assisted selfies turned out since we finally hunted down the mini-usb cable. By the way, I am very happy with my current situation and I thank God for this opportunity. Life has been a struggle for the better part of a year now, but I've gotten some closure on a few things that were haunting me, so I'm feeling a lot of peace and freedom now.
