Chicken!

Went for a smokey-sweet flavour with just a bit of heat (cayenne pepper). Not spicy tasting but...bold! Very bold. I think the brown sugar balances out the heat. :D

Elie Wiesel

For years I've been passing along the message of, "The opposite of love is not hate, but indifference" but I never actually knew who said it until this morning. I'm embarrassed that I didn't know so I feel the need to share it further.

This is from an article on CNN this morning, about the look on the murderer's face as he drained the life from George Floyd's body.

But the look of disinterest in his eyes is a reminder that indifference -- not just hate -- is a critical part of how racism works.

The late Holocaust survivor and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Elie Wiesel once said, "The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference."

Wiesel said that to the indifferent person, "his or her neighbor are of no consequence... Their hidden or even visible anguish is of no interest. Indifference reduces the Other to an abstraction."



Full article is here, if you're interested.

I love them both but I love Michele (Lisa Kudrow) just a tiny smidge more. ;)

Beautiful Spring Day

20210424_183212.jpg


It hit 21C today! I wore a dress (and even put a little makeup on! Oh la la) and we did all our running around and I felt like a million bucks :D ...But now I've been wearing this makeup for over eight hours and I MUST get it off. *cringing* Now that I so seldom wear it my skin is just like, NO. (It's all hypoallergenic and expensive and ~comes from France~...I don't know what else I can do? My skin just wants to BREATHE.) So I'll hop in the shower as soon as I'm done this.

We got all our errands done early and Scott has been working on the backyard surprise for most of the afternoon (so close) and I've been chipping away at the housework... So looking forward to calling it quits and just relaxing tonight. We tried to make the most of the day but I'm done now. ;)

He did get us our treat meal...
