It Seemed the Taste Was Not So Sweet

Now, that I'm sick again and can't do anything super productive around my house this weekend, I thought I'd actually get on the blog here and do the Saturday Scavenger Hunt this week. Manuel picked the word this year: change.

I decided just to do a "what a difference a year makes" photo post. The top photo I took leaving my office yesterday afternoon. The weather was nice enough for the skater dudes to wear t-shirts and shorts and I ran home to get things ready for my nice relaxing movie night with my girls.

This was taken this same weekend, last year. I was still dating that one guy and I visited him in St Louis where we went out to eat duck for the first time in my life. Here is a photo of the whole spread. It was really cold and though we had fun when I was there, it was clear we had some SERIOUS problems. Problems that turned out to be terminal for our relationship.

When I look at both photos and remember each weekend, I feel so much happier and calm in my life now. Apparently, the change has been very good this past year.

Good change, obviously, is the best kind of change for all of us.

I'm loving the warm weather we're having right now, although I'm thinking winter is going to make one last appearance. But until then...nice, nice, nice.

What does duck taste like? It sounds really good.

It's so good when things work out like that. Clearly you made the right choice.

I love a duck dish called duck under glass...yum. No one makes it where I live now.

I never had duck either. One day I may have to break down and try it. It seems that change is all around us right now.

"Ch ch ch changes..."

Isn't it funny when you get out of a miserable relationship-- you look back on all the rationalizing, making excuses for them, etc.

Sounds like a good kind of change!

I like that we were able to focus on the positive aspects of change.
What a difference a year makes...
