Mother

 

When I open my Mother’s cook book, I smell L’Air du Temps, stale cigarette smoke and regrets.
When my Father left, it destroyed her.
She drank to forget and drank some more to forget
She was drinking. 
I asked help from her family and they told me to be a good Christian 
And forgive. 
Therapy helped me realize that I should let it go. 
I did such a good job of this that I don’t exactly remember 
What year she passed. I know it was December...the 15th? 2011 or 2012? 
When I think about this I smell L’Air du Temps, stale cigarette smoke and regrets.

The time Pyrex saved me


  I might as well share

 when I heard that I lost my job...I was alone in the house...and I started to hyperventilate....and God knows what else....I was super scared I was going to have a heart attack...but I managed to calm down...by pacing in my house and opening  the front door...and then openeing the back door and taking DEEP breaths....

And I needed to find a happy place....



And I did! I had to look at my Pyrex hoard.....and I had to dig out some Turquoise Snowflake pieces and make a quick display. 



And that made me feel so much better. 

Have a great evening

Thursday February 4th 2021




 Normal start of the day...wake up at 6:30 am...drink coffee...have pleasant chitchat with my inner circle....

Go down to the basement at 7:30 am ....start doing the morning reports....8:30 am I get a call from my boss...and I get fired! 

Wham bam fuck you mam! By 10:30 am I did not exist anymore at big company .....

I knew I was on the fence for a while...because my new boss informed me in late November 2020...that I was on Quality review because I had not met quality goals for the last 2 years...and that was the first time I heard about it. 

When big company bought medium company in 2015...they ignored medium company for about 2 years...then they had the idea to offer packages and 80% of medium cie employees left. 

That was when I changed boss...she was nice but basically ignored me. Not to far after that I got a new leader...and she worked extra hard to ignore me. Even after I flagged that I was alone doing 8 people’s jobs...and not very well! 

In 2020 I got my present ex-leader in June....and she never said anything until late November. i did my very best...but obviously I failed.

Now I say good riddance to an awful stressful job....my work stress is now their work stress. Big company now deal with all your gaps and failures! 


I will be on vacation...plotting my comeback !

Off to a good start

 Continuing on the positive sides of 2020. 

I tried a lot of recipes in 2020.

Some my family did not like at all...like Hawaiian chicken, the breakfast crescent bake all of Youtube is raving about...not here I tell you! Hahahahaha


Yes that is the one! Ew !!!

Others were winners...like the breakfast burritos...super easy and you can freeze them. And the cowboy lasagna. Of course I had to tweak it...remove the corn add green and red peppers....and a lot less cheese. 


Today I bought a 13 pound brisket at the grocery store, portioned it wrapped and froze it. I plan to make a cola brisket and a corned brisket....I have no idea what that will end up as...because this is a super rare occurrence in Quebec super markets! I am thinking that since so many restaurants are closed, bulk distributors need to get rid of some specialty items. 

Cowboy Lasagna, 



Hoppin’ John to bring luck to 2021! 


Okay sweet folks, have a great evening, say warm and stay safe! 


Wear your mask!
