Sick and happy

April 7, 2007 - Categories: life

Once in a blue moon I get quite sick. I think this is so far the best way I’ve spent such a day, though… snuggled up with a hot water bottle, wrapped in a Strawberry Shortcake blanket, watching a movie, offered tea and food and hugs at every opportunity.

As illogical as it may seem, I still do actually want to get better. I’ve been a little under the weather for the past week, which annoys me. But W and J are totally sweet, and I’m so grateful that if I have to be sick, it’s around such wonderful people. I’m looking forward to repaying the favor and practising what they’re teaching me about taking care of people who are sick.

Lasagna

We made lasagna tonight. W and J hadn’t made lasagna at home before, but we managed to put together two decent versions. The first pan was a good start, although we ran out of mozzarella and had to substitute cheddar for the second pan. We also put portabello mushrooms into the second lasagna. Ahh… bliss!

I told W and J stories about how I grew up on lasagna from Almon Marina, how my parents would always bring me lasagna when I was sick or sad or just whenever, how my mom would bake lasagna for Christmas or New Year’s or my birthday, how my sister regretted giving me permission to help myself to the lasagna she baked… Lasagna is one of my comfort foods, woven through my life.

Blissed out. Happy girl!
