valentine's day gifting
an amazing present from eric. it's hard to see, but in the lower right-hand corner the words "sister" and "daughter" are written in hebrew. ironically, i gave him a silver ring with the words "brother" and "son" in hebrew. it's strange because i kind of told myself that if we gave each other 'complimentary' gifts for valentine's day, it would be a sign from God that everything will work out as we hope it will. it's certainly making this season much more bearable.
i wish there were more hours in the day. i dont have time to do all the things i want to do. i get so depressed when, at 6:00 pm at night, i realize that all i've done for the day is read a book and put away laundry.
this winter is so confining. i'm anxious to go for hikes, picnic, run and jump and throw my arms up into the air under the stars. i guess for now i've settled for eating more fresh strawberries and keeping the food dehydrator running at all times: yesterday i experimented with some applesauce and sugar-free raspberry jello mix, which ended up tasting more like a jolly rancher than fruit leather. today i've got more bananas, a tangelo and its rind, and... mango! yep, figured out how to slice up a mango. one of these days i'm going up to saraga to load up on the more exotic fruits, and then, fruit leathers will abound.
man, i sure do get motivated about the food dehydrator...
