A partial packing list for a road trip to my parents' casa this evening:
-A bottle of Texas honey wine (to share). We purchased this beverage in Gruene during our anniversary earlier this year, looking ahead to my healing. When I remember things like this I laugh out loud, then cry saying, "Thank You." Basket case?
-Local raw honey, to drizzle on my breakfast of plain Greek yogurt topped with blueberries and granola.
-Moroccan orange spice tea ~ my Mom's gonna love this one.
-Laptop (my parents have wi-fi, God bless 'em).
-Yep, I'm taking Nystatin along for the ride. I'm definitely healed, but a nurse recommended a transition of treats and meds here at the end. Sounds wise to me.
-Probiotics, my faithful friend 'til I'm old and gray.
-Yeast-free snacks and things which I actually enjoy. I've learned the art of balance this past year and a half.
-Both of our neti pots. We're still fighting snot somewhat, though this is improving, too.
-A good book, and a good magazine (with a good CD).
-Moleskine and my favorite pen (micro + black).
-Good music on Johnny's iPod and podcasts on my nano.
-Vanilla chai lotion and a variety of lip balm.
-Sock monkey slippers.
-Sweater + coat.
I love November - now it will always and forever remind me of new life, praise be to God.
