I debated scheduling a cross country plane flight for today, but I wasn't sure if I could manage it on a day of fast. Have a lovely retreat day with your little one.


That's a beautiful final paragraph.

Yes, this is also my family this holiday weekend. To bring Lent to the interior in the midst of a luxurious exterior takes focus and preparation. I struggle with the blood sugar issue on a fast day also. I really can't go without breakfast (2 eggs) without getting shaky, so there is my normal meal of the day. I'll have a protein shake at lunchtime and a piece of fish or some rice with vegetables later today. I always forget to buy vegetable broth. On my shopping list for next week.


I made my vegetable broth from scratch this morning. It hardly felt penitential as I was watching it simmering away -- a pot of roasted onions, potatoes, carrots, celery, garlic, mushrooms, and parsley -- but I sure felt penitential when I threw away the boiled vegetables instead of nibbling on the cooked potatoes and carrots as I usually do.
