Stormy Weather

This was actually taken in London but it pretty much sums up what Flagstaff
 has been like the last week. 
And I like it.
Dodging storm clouds, glowing rain from the sunlight and crashes of electricity.

Holy Grilled Cheese, Batman!

Who Cut the Cheese?

2 slices delicious bread
2 slices pepper jack cheese
sautéed spinach, red bell peppers and onions
pesto and/or hummus of choice
avocado slices

Butter the assembled sandwich and grill 'em up just like mama did.

Things Mildred Says and Does...

One month being back in America and a lot has changed. I've gone from stumbling over complicated French phrasing to yelling simple sentences at little old ladies. I'm so grateful to have my old job back working with seniors. I get to once again visit my 100-year-old lady (who is now 101!).

When I was showing her pictures of my life in France on my Mac I asked her, "Have you ever seen anything like this before?"
She replied, "Why I've never seen a photo-show-er like this, no."
She stumbled over that noun that she didn't know existed, computer.
L'ordinateur in French.

And these little phenomenons make me think that maybe life hasn't changed all that much. 
It continues.
It's still about exploration, and learning, and words, and photo-show-ers.
