Events from last week have me reeling. Little did I know how much this quote that I posted would become relevant to me later that day. My family will never be the same again.
Along with family and friends, we are trying to adjust to a new normal. I never run out of things to blog about, but not much seems to matter right now in comparison. I’m an optimistic person, but it takes a bit of time to recover from a kick to your gut.
If you are the praying kind, then prayers for my family will help. I don’t have much to offer right now in the way of posts except for one thing. The price of ground cardamom is nearly double the price in Stop & Shop than in Market Basket. Why pay $14.99 if you can pay $7.99?
Before Christmas I ran out. This is the first Christmas where I didn’t really bake. Except for when a cousin came over to visit me, I did bake Chai-Spiced Almond Cookies. Since I had no cardamom, they weren’t really chai-spiced. I used ginger instead. Which was still quite good by the way.
Market Basket is not near where I live, but when I go to my parents’ house, I can choose from a few locations. Since I did some food shopping for my parents at Market Basket, I decided to finally get some cardamom. I used it in my oatmeal this morning. It’s a small thing, but it’s comforting. And that is what I need right now.

Hope all is well with you, Lisa.
Glad to have found you, again
Happy New Year!
Margie – As I mentioned in this post, things have been very difficult recently. Hope you have a wonderful 2015.
Sorry to hear that, Lisa.
I will pray for you and your family.
Margie – Thank you. It’s not something to share on the blog, at least at this point.
