It’s 4 pm ET. There is a small pinch pot, complete with face and hands and feet, in progress on the kitchen counter.
The table is currently the home of electronic medical records and a first adventure with crocheting.
A movement is afoot to clear the whole counter for dinner prep.
It is, indeed, French Laundry experiment night!
But, before that… a call to the A/C repair folks for advice. (And, yes, it’s HOT!)
I am temporarily resting up from a major raid on Michaels, in preparation for sous chef duties.
My grandsnake is, well, snaking around his huge aquarium condo next to the table. I’ve begun to find him interesting, which is major learning for me. (Possibly enough learning in this case!)
The fabulous fish place was short a fillet-er and we had to leave before rush hour, so the mom & dad & I will be tackling that adventure, too.
I used to help my dad a lot.
That was, shall we say, a long time ago!
The girls are going to give me jewelry lessons. (Probably tomorrow.)
We’ve also been painting!
The cats are prowling around, somehow having guessed that there is snapper in the fridge. Or, maybe they’re just hopeful!
I have learned how to give money to tweens & teens new to the wonders of banking and debit cards!
And had a lesson in airpods! (Since I added a remote drive to my laptop, I have waaaayyy too many things with cords!)
I know all this sounds like blah… blah… blah… It really isn’t!
It’s the place where all the things I’ve learned and survived on my journey, thus far, feel like exactly what I needed to be ready for this moment.
I am utterly in my power… and have no need to be in charge.
Which is, when you think about it, kind of miraculous!
I suspect all this revelation is related to my recent ability to claim the fact that my SuperPower, if you will, is helping others claim and live into their SuperPowers.
This knowing has been a long time coming.
Blessedly generous teachers. Some effective choices at the crossroads of learn new things or give up. A hefty bit of urgent desperation along the path.
A lineage of amazing women. And taking my place on the way… following a great many and helping to lead some, too.
The power-full painting at the top belongs to one of those amazing women.
The slightly younger amazing woman, below, is already a talented sous chef.
And the fortune in the cookie for this moment, borrowed from a chosen Mama, Caron McCloud, is this:
