this week has been a real downer. monday i felt terrible and embarrassed and sick and all of those things i hate to feel. i actually cried to my friend michelle that i've been feeling sort of depressed. so there you go. see, when an always upbeat person feels low it's sometimes hard to talk about because the track record of positivity points in only (or mostly in) one direction. david's grandpa's funeral was yesterday and it was as good as you can expect. it is nice to be with family and share a meal and hold hands and cry together. the whole day i kept looking around looking for his grandpa in this inexplicable way. i mean he's got to be here somewhere! but well, i tearfully reflected that he wasn't. david is going okay. that man keeps his emotions pretty buttoned up so even as his wife i can't really tell.
today was just what the doctor ordered for a frigid, rainy day - tea with a friend followed by hot soup for lunch. i just threw all kinds of junk in a pot (chicken stock, ham, lentils, carrots, garlic, celery, sweet potato, yukon gold potato, cumin, red pepper flakes, etc.) and i'm already on my second bowl. i wish i had some kale to throw in it! did i ever mention that not a single thing we planted in the fall garden germinated? what the heck in the world?!
