Thomas and Camilla May 2020 Date Day

Part 1: Lunch for pick up from Bangkok Cuisine

This is exactly what I wanted, have been wanting for a few months. Great selection of vegan items, too.

I had Vegan Fresh Rolls with peanut sauce for an appetizer; which I split with Thomas, Penang Curry for the main course, followed by an amazing dessert of Sweet Rice with Coconut. 😋😋😋

Thomas had Chicken Penang Curry, Thai Omelet with Tomato & Onions, and Sweet Rice with Mangos fir dessert.

Part 2: A walk in a new-to-Thomas spot. He liked it!!

Thomas and Camilla April 2020 Date Day

Thomas and Camilla April 2020 Date Day

First “stop”: Lunch from Teriyaki Madness. Spicy chicken bowl for Thomas. Spicy tofu bowl for me. Eaten at The TLC Casa. 💚💚💚

Tip for vegans: Ask them to cook your dish in a wok, otherwise it is fried in the same oil as the meat dishes. They were happy to make it work so I didn’t have to order lunch from two different places.

Second stop: Washoe Lake

Easter 2020 – Team TLC and The Romano Duo – Sort Of

April 12 2020

Here’s to a lovely day!

I just received this photo from The Romano Duo and it hit me with all the feels, causing my eyes to pool with liquid joy, love, laughter, and sadness … all at the same time. (Do you see Team TLC’s photos? HA! They are so fun!)

We are so happy we got to see them in person yesterday, as we stood on the 2nd floor patio, and they stayed down below outside the front door. That was fun and wonderful! (They brought chairs and sat down in the shade. Ha!)

I am incredibly thankful to be healthy, to have food, a beautiful place to live, that Thomas, Lillian and I are together, and that we share this life together.

For many years I have written morning pages/ journal writing, and for the past month I have been closing with 3 things for which I am grateful. It’s a powerful practice if anyone would like to try it. Don’t just list what you’re grateful for, expand on it with why you are grateful. You just may feel your shoulders relax, your jaw unclench, and feel a tad bit lighter afterwards. Sending oceans of love to all … xoxo

Eight Years in the Making Along with Creating Mini Poems

February 22 2020

8 years in the making …. Team TLC – Thomas, Lillian, Camilla … 3 family members …. 4 published books …. There are more to come. However, I need to take this year to press the reset button, for my physical health and for the emotional health of Thomas and Lillian. We’ve drifted from the Team in our Team TLC; which I know will happen as they get older. Yet, I’ve let vital areas slip by the wayside over the past 4 or 5 years, especially this last year.

One major struggle is about to end for us. Once that gift is showered upon us, the rebuilding of Team TLC begins. Of course it will look and feel different than when Thomas and Lillian were younger, and that’s the beauty of it, tempered with the longing of the way it used to be.

I get the feeling the next book will be authored by all three of us. We shall see. I never really know until I become focused on the book’s creation. xoxo

There were days
She could see no reason to continue

There were days
Shrouded in darkness and despair

There were days
Bubbling with joy and love

There were days
She knew the reason to continue

These were the days
The 18,250 days of riding the wheels of her life.

Creating more mini poems and messages to hide in Words of Alchemy. Tedious Yet, there’s nothing like the feeling when phrases come together for a perfect fit. 🖤

Poetic Clouds With New Discoveries While Hugging Trees and Nature Leads the Way

Friday’s cloud
White cotton candy
Melts in your mouth
Melts before your eyes

Today’s walk with Thomas. A new to us walk. Plus, we discovered this great looking sport called Disc Golf. Looks fun!

We’ve been inside since Saturday, and will only be going out for walks. Lillian’s immune system is weaker than mine and Thomas’s and I want to do our part to keep this from spreading. Will have to figure out what to do about groceries near the end of the week. Sending love to all ….

I had never heard of disc golf. There happened to be two men there playing it, and from across the ditch I asked him to tell me about it. It’s got the same sort of strategy as golf, yet, you use frisbee like disks of varying weights and sizes. Tossing them from a distance into standing “baskets”. It looked fun!

The guy I talked with just happened to be the one who founded this course and set it up three years ago. It’s near South Valleys Park and Library (Reno, NV), in what looks like a huge ditch. I had heard there was a walking trail there, so that’s why we were there. Now if you walk, you’ve got to mind the space above your head for flying discs!! He said I could get a beginner kit at a sporting goods store. Now you know what disc golf is … in my laymen description anyway …

Maybe this afternoons walk wasn’t such a good idea. My legs and hands are still frozen. However, I hugged a tree and found some love along the way!! Trees are GREAT huggers!

Clouds yesterday. Nature leads the Way …
