No alarms to anticipate, a slower pace, and nothing on the list of have-to

Our typical is a breakfast date at either the local greasy spoon or brunch if we’re feeling fancy.  But after this week, neither one of us reached for our coats and shoes; it simply went unsaid.  We both needed downtime and a chance to recharge

I’d battled a flu bug, and it’s unclear which one of us was declared the winner.  My husband traveled for a few days, flying to the east coast on an incredibly cool work assignment

The first out of bed, turned on Folk Alley, brewed a cup of tea, and realized something about being in the kitchen just felt good and normal

I hadn’t cooked for nearly a week

A hearty, savory, yet simple skillet seemed in order: nothing fancy, more of an odds-and-ends blend from the fridge.

Sweet potatoes as the base, homemade sausage a nice addition of protein.  Eggs, and laughing cow herbed cheese to dot the top.

Over breakfast, we caught up on stories.  Ships and seafood topped the list.  A chance to catch our collective breath.  Silently thankful for the moments of quiet and our place called home
