Fixed my signature cheesy mushroom chicken and rice dish for Rosa tonight. It is a simple recipe of boneless chicken breasts cooked in butter, cream of mushroom soup, and milk. I cooked a big pot of southern style sticky rice and mixed it in. It was the perfect cold weather meal and treat. I love how creamy and buttery it is -- packed with calories to burn on a cold night. My waist line doesn't like it though.
"I am going to start going to AA with you," Rosa told me after our meal.
We were sitting in my den watching the nightly news which I detest. It was Rosa's idea. She watches a lot of television.
"Thank you. And I will got to NA (Narcotics Anonymous) with you," I replied.
Rosa was moping about this evening, though. She still has a broken heart about Allyssa being taken back to Atlanta.
"I miss her so much," Rosa said at one point.
"I know you do, sweetheart," I replied.
"You never know what life will throw at you, do you?"
"No, you never do," I replied. "That's why I take it one day at a time."
And taking it one day at a time has been key to me staying sober. I only have to worry about the four or five hours ahead of me before going to bed tonight. I can stay sober for that long. Come what may, tomorrow.
Been reading up on photography basics all afternoon. I am getting enough confidence to start shooting photos with the manual setting on my camera. F-stop, ISO speed, shutter speed. It can all be so confusing, but I think the best pictures are taken on manual. I am so glad I've had photography to exercise my mind these days. I am getting to be a regular shutter-bug.
