Sunday Gratitude – November 23, 2014

Sheesh… only one more week left in November!  Between my wonderful photography class with Joy Sussman, my Italian wine class (boo hoo… last one is this coming Thursday), my couple of catering jobs… time just flew!  Thank goodness because it didn’t allow me to focus on any negatives for longer than necessary!  There are always bumps in the road but the goal here is to not focus on them… Acknowledge them, face them, do what needs to be done, learn from it and move on!

There are quite a few photos I took during my class that I’m proud of and it was pretty difficult to choose but one… so, what the heck, here are a few!

Gratitude List

  1. Got a chance to go see our Habs whup St.Louis’ butts at the Bell Centre and had great seats (that’s Hockey for those who don’t follow!)
  2. Had a bit of a disaster delivering to a first-time client downtown but was able to save the food!  Thanks for being so kind and understanding, Lucy!
  3. So grateful to my sister Tracy for having been available to help me with my delivery downtown.
  4. A second family just signed up for two Dalectables family-style meals per week.  Woot!  Baby steps moving forward but still moving forward.
  5. It’s so nice when the boys go to Mick’s shop to help out with production (yes, it is not for free, but still!)

  1. Hey there, I found you via the NaBloPoMo blogroll.

    As part of NaBloPoMo I try to comment on as many participating blogs as I can, and I am also adding participating blogs to my feed reader. So I’m just dropping by to let you know I’ve added your blog to my feedreader, whenever you publish a post I will see it. 🙂

    I have created three bundles on Inoreader so that bloggers can easily visit other participating NaBloPoMo bloggers which you can find here –


    I also have a link up going at my place so my readers can find participating blogs which you are more than welcome to add your blog link to.

    Looking forward to seeing your posts. You may see me drop by again during November, but it might be December before I finish my first drop by to blogs if I don’t get faster at leaving comments. 🙂

    Happy NaBloPoMo to you!


  2. I’m glad you shared more than one photo, they’re all awesome! I wish I could have joined in with the class but I’m aiming to sign up next time :). And I know exactly what you mean about time flying by. How can it be the end of November already??

  3. Nice pics, so cheers to your photography class … but I’m jealous about the Italian wine class!!! …. and just so you know, the Blues will finished higher than the Habs …. but will probably do their normal early exit in the playoffs.


    • Thanks, Frank. The wine class is indeed very fun… Last one on Thursday, sniff, sniff! Puh-leeze… dream on. The Habs are way overdue to win! 😉


  4. Hooray! All of my fave Dale photos from the class made it into this post…wait a sec, you left out the self-portrait!? (Thanks for the shout-out, and you already know just how crazymuch I appreciated your contributions to the class!)


  5. Dale~I wonder if I could start catering gluten-free, like you do with yours? Boulder id too competitive. If I had been here six years ago, maybe.

    Have a great rest of your week.

    • Well now why not? The Gluten-free world seems to be getting ever wider. Competition or no, all it takes is just one client who talks to another, then a friend who decides to chant your praises (food untasted, even!) and then one thing leads to another. I have to keep mine pretty quiet as I’m not well, legit! It’s mostly friends that I do business with. I dream of being able to announce to the world what I do! But that requires so many strict rules to follow that most home-caterers give it up. Government always up your ass. Makes it quasi-impossible to succeed.

        • Oh you CAN here… but oye… must have stainless steel counters, separate fridge and freezer for Customer food and all sorts of other crapola. Sometimes I think of getting myself a bi-generation house just so I could have a separate kitchen for the biz… not an impossibility as I am looking. I just love my present kitchen so it’s no easy task. I told Mick we need to buy land and then we can self-build!
