The Painting: REDS and BLACKS. The youngest daughter asked why I had not painted a black horse. I really didn't think I was in the mood for this as I was leaning to a dapple gray myself... but the strong red background and I knew only a black steed could hold up against it.
The Thought: Abundance in food. Have you ever noticed in restaurants they always give you twice what you need to eat? It is not quite enough for two people to eat, but darn close.
We went out to eat at Rockport off Preston and Forest. It used to be Main Stream, our favorite fish place to eat. BUT now it is a Rockport Fish place. Terry had Salmon and I had Maui Maui... we feasted on potatoes and fresh veggies too. The chef brought us out some sweet potato things too and they were really really good. Since it was my birthday week, we had key lime pie that was incredible. So much for painting today.... at least the food was in abundance.
We had exercised walking the mall in the morning and we started our Christmas shopping. It is that time of the year... and our family exchanges names. Terry has Larry's name. I have Tara's name. We did Larry already, but not Tara yet. Heck I am still working on Birthday week...
Think about the abundance of food in your life. Try eating half of what you normally would... good way to loose weight. Share an entree with your dining partner and just order an extra salad. That works too.
I can't wait to see what today will bring....
Happy eating... in abundance.
Abundance is good.
