Savoring the Good Things

Last night we ate at one of my very favorite restaurants, Bombay House in SLC. I crave Indian food from there. I love it. I'm still thinking about how delicious the food was. It satisfied me to the core.

I finished reading The Glass Castle Saturday and it's still lingering in my thoughts. I felt happy, upset, hopeful and sad while reading one page. Then the same emotions on the next page. And the page after that. There were so many lessons to be learned about parenting, resilience, and choices. The human spirit is so strong for the most part. And people can only be helped/assisted if they choose to be.

I like savoring good food & good books.

Quite the book. It's on my top 20 list. Glad you read it; now you can read Half Broke Horses by the same author. Your mom just gave it to me for my birthday.

Oops, that previous comment was by me - Beaner. I must have somehow commented under Craiger's name. Sorry, don't tell him.

Yeah, Jennie. I felt the same way about that book. I read it and liked it too.

Haven't read that book, but I will have too. You should try bombay Grill in Ogden. It is really good too, and the Himalayan Kitchen on state street just off of 4th South in SL is great too.
