Thomas and Camilla February 2021 Date Day
Maya’s South Indian Cuisine – Avial for me, Chicken Chettinad for Thomas.
Next, picking up my cake for tomorrow – Vegan Chocolate Mousse Cake 😋😛😋 Thomas secured the precious cargo in the backseat. 🤣🤪😂
Followed by Yogurt Beach for dessert. Mango sorbet for me, and I have no idea for Thomas, it was a mixture of 3 different flavors.
Ending with a walk we’ve not taken for quite a while. Lots of memories along this trail, too.

We were in a snow globe this morning …

Thank you, Gerry Foster McCarroll!! Thomas is ready for his private piano lessons beginning tomorrow! We used to have one of these for many years, passing it on when we moved last year.
Thomas got a new midi keyboard Christmas 2019. With online lessons we needed a non midi keyboard. Friends to the rescue. I love the idea of passing things around to each other, instead of always buying brand new (when it works).

In my mission to hopefully help my back to never do what it did 3 weeks ago, a new desk chair. It’s an adjustable ergonomic active balance stool.
I don’t have a desk yet, I’ll get that next month. I can use this at the kitchen table or the makeshift desk I made using a keyboard stand and piece of wood. I’ve been sitting on the couch working on my laptop for longer than I care to admit. Time to get my rear off the couch. 💥💥💥

“Can I help you cook dinner?” -Thomas. …. to which I replied, “You can put the dishes in the dishwasher for me” …. to which Thomas replied, “I’d be happy to. Let me take my shirt off.” (11.8.11) (Sensory issues!! He still will take off his shirt if it gets water on it!)
“I like you even when you are getting on to me.” -Thomas Darnell (11.8.11)
“I wish to be you when I grow up.” -Lillian Darnell

First trip to the library pick up window since they reopened (for holds only). It was about a 40 minute wait = too many photos. 🤣😂 Lots of books. 📚💚📚

It’s our one year Homeversary!
The clouds and sky made a pretty show for us yesterday at sunset. Getting into this place one year ago, coupled with becoming a host home provider for Lillian in February 2020, meant the world to my emotional and physical health.
November 2019 was the tipping point for me, and I’m deeply blessed and grateful to everyone who helped us along the way the previous ten years. Because of these two events I was able to take 2020 as a year of rest and reset.
My body, mind, and heart were wasted after about 13 years of focusing on healing, with struggling financially. I am feeling so much better! Hallelujah!!!! I’m ready to rejoin society! 🤣😂 … As soon as society is able to reopen! 😂🤣 … Oceans of love to all of you!! ❤️❤️❤️

Been exploring this all afternoon. Mainly for Thomas. I’ll explore mine and Lillian’s after I’m finished with his. Deeply interesting, and fun! If you’re familiar with Human Design, what’s yours?
Thomas: Projector with a 4/6 profile and Spleen Authority.
Lillian: Manifesting Generator with a 6/2 profile and Emotions Authority.
Camilla: Generator with a 2/5 profile and Emotions Authority.
If you’re familiar with Human Design, and familiar with us, what do you think? Sound like us?
I spent almost 2 days putting together a report for Thomas, with all of his information. Whew!

“I Will Survive” – Gloria Gaynor …. Love!!! One of my favorite songs! 🎶🖤🎶
A beautiful 2020 sparkling pink lemonade with vegan “cheesecake” topped with homemade cherry sauce. We celebrated on New York time so I’m off to bed. Last dreams of 2020 and first dreams of 2021. See y’all next year! 🖤🎉🖤

Thomas has been listening to the vinyl albums he got for Christmas. I love the color of this one. This was a double set, with the other being red. Cool! ❤️💿💙
Look at this one! So pretty.
