An Unexpectedly Slow Day

My back is in spasm, so we’re having a slow day. A heating pad, my Kindle, and cup after cup of vanilla chai tea are my faithful companions. Gerry and I just finished watching a Zoom recording of a Wednesday night series happening at our church. With all that’s gone wonky for the past few years, Zoom and live streaming are things I’m thankful for. From the days when Zooming to church was the only option to now, when we can attend all manner of classes and meetings virtually, technology is a gift. I love our church and am going to miss everything about it when we move to Saskatchewan. It’s good to know we will still be able to pop in via the live stream.

I’m also thankful I made a big pot of Keto-friendly cauliflower soup in the slow cooker yesterday because there’s plenty left for supper tonight. It’s a delicious combination of cauliflower, onion, bacon, cheese, and heavy cream that will become a regular around here even when we’re no longer doing Keto.

Outside, the wind is howling; inside the dogs are restless. Days like this sometimes seem pointless but are, nonetheless, necessary now and then.



I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.

    1. Hi Sherrey. I got the recipe from the book Simply Keto by Suzanne Ryan. I found a reprint of it here:
