I don’t think we can look at the calendar today and not think about what happened eight years ago today. September eleventh. Nine eleven. May the people that died there and the heroes who sacrificed their lives to save others all rest in peace.
Let’s hope such cruel events never happen again. EVER.
1. Highlight of the week was my daughter’s birthday. She was on vacation in Greece, so we could not celebrate together, but I was with her in thoughts. Thanks for all the Birthday wishes you sent her in the comments, I’m sure she had fun reading them.
2. Baking. I had a little bit of fun baking biscuits from scratch. Wanda posted pictures of the the buttermilk biscuits she had made, and when I asked her for the recipe, she posted it in her sidebar. Thank you so much Wanda. The biscuits are easy to make and they taste delicious. I filled them with cream cheese and blackberry jam and smoked salmon and sour cream as part of our weekend brunches.
3. Lunch with my friend Nana: Tuesday morning I had lunch with my dear blogger friend Nana. A little bit of shopping, girl talk, lunch and a cup of coffee…
Time passed much too fast again.
4. Photography class: Tuesday was the first lesson and I’m thrilled. I think this workshop is exactly what I was looking for, to learn and understand the technical aspects of my camera. Our teacher is a very artistic person, so I’m really looking forward to the next lessons and the excursions we’re going to do together.
5. Doctors and medication: It’s been months, maybe even years since I needed a doctor and I kind of forgot what it’s like to be ill. I’m not the kind of person who runs to the doctor for every little pain or itch, but this time I’m so glad I did. I got an appointment within the hour, and because of the quick diagnose and the strong medication my doctor prescribed me, it looks like I’m going to beat the shingles virus a lot faster than the first time I got it. That was Wednesday, it’s Friday morning now, I’m still in a lot of pain, and my energy level is still very low, I do need a lot of rest, but I’m hoping for a quick recovery.
So if I’m not around as much as you’re used to, please forgive me?
