Waiting For Fall

It’s in the upper 80s today, but I went ahead with plans to make cream of broccoli soup. It is approaching mid-October after all.

I followed this recipe, subbing a dash of 1% milk in for the heavy cream and it turned out yummy (and low fat!).

Lately I’ve been listening to Pema Chodron’s Comfortable with Uncertainty on my walks. The last couple of days have felt very uncertain work-wise, so it’s been good practice for me to sit with not knowing what’s going to happen. I’m definitely a person who desires security and comfort and will go to great lengths to try and “get it together” as a person. But it’s sort of like corralling monkeys, isn’t it?

So today I said, ok, I’m here… and I’m gonna make soup.

*update: I didn’t realize that all I seem to talk about on this blog is making soup. hahaha… oh well.
