Just finished a 3 mile brisk walk with my gal pal Kitty. Her real name is Lori, but we call her Kitty because she sorta looks like a cat. Also, when we were both young and single, she would purr and prance like a kitten, and so a nickname was born, and it stuck.
I cherish our weekly 6 am walks. We bounce between her neighborhood and mine. Luca always comes with us and adores her time with Kitty cat too.
Still no dairy. I made a bomb diggety recipe last night. Here goes:

My husband said "Sour cream belongs on this"
I said "Not when we're doing no dairy",
Now, I am doing no dairy. He can have as much dairy as he pleases. We don't have any sour cream so he didn't put any dairy on it, but, that was a close call.
I had a dream about my Grandpa Jim last night. He looked at me with his huge shit-eating grin, smiled and waved. I know he was signaling me. I felt happy when I woke up having seen him in my dream. He also looked just like my uncle Dan does now.

I read this as, "Let your freak flag fly" and so I will.....
I am headed to Santa Monica for a hotel event tonight. I am excited to see my hotel partners and continue to build the re-entry vendor relationships. Every outing like this is a gift and I don't want to take for granted the ability to convene, in person, as a group. It is an honor and I will hold it in that regard.
