What I did last night...

My sponsor and her husband brought me a dozen ears of corn, and then we ate out all weekend. So I had all these ears of corn that I could not let go to waste. So I made corn relish! It tastes quite yummy. And I absolutely love to put on my apron and fire up the stove and get to work canning something. As I stood sweating in my kitchen, I thought about turning on the Air Conditioning and thought it really would spoil the whole ambiance of canning. It was fun!

Today I am back to work after four days off. I am afraid to look at my palm to see what I have scheduled today. I am sure what ever it is will be just fine. On Mondays, one of my sponsees comes over and we read the big book - that is something to look forward to after a long day.

Have a great sober day everyone.

As we lay aside these very human aspirations, we believe that each of us takes part in the weaving of a protective mantle which covers our whole Society and under which we may grow and work in unity." -- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, p. 187

I guess that today you can be corny, well, just because you can.

I love all things corn, except corn tortillas. Unfortunately I cannot have corn any longer as it exacerbates my diverticulosis. :-(

Happy Monday, MC!

I'm afraid to look at my palm too because it's hard and callused. I also have a simian crease that holds all kind of meaning. The relish looks great.

that kind of sweating feels so good doesn't it? Cleansing and you get something good to eat in the winter with warm memories. How fun!
