Very Cold, Stir Fry and Being Sensitive

Temperature is dropping - below freezing the next 3 nights and had to bring my 2 very old plants back inside from screen porch. Reviewing old images I noticed so many more plants blooming
at this time of year in years past.
Emptied crisper drawer in refrigerator and salvaged enough to make stir fry. Bok Choy,
celery, squash, carrot, cabbage with an addition of shrimp (keep on hand
in freezer.)  Quick and tasty
with the last of blueberry, cranberry bread on hand and will bake more soon.
 
Rarely watch movies, temperature dropping, windy day
was a good day.  "The Good Life" story of young Sudanese War refugees
who win the lottery and are able to come to United States to start a new life.
I cried through most of it and finally turned it off without it being finished.
Many times during my long lifetime so much I could not view,
read about or think about.   Wish I was not this way...

Movies can be quite compelling and my husband finds depressing movies too hard to watch and then go on with his life. Make sure you watch movies that are more uplifting, because there are many good movies out there.

Tabor, seems I am like your husband with this trait. Any recommendations for good movies
appreciated...

Love this Ernestine, and I may attempt a similar stir fry here tomorrow. Oh and your prayer flag/St. Francis header is gorgeous.

Dear Cate, always a smile when I see you comment as I know how busy your life is - thank you much...

That stir fry and bread is making me hungry! I can't get fresh cranberries anymore at market and don't have any left in the freezer. Next year I'll stock up when they're in season. My family likes a cranberry/orange/apple compote that I make.

Barb, I still have 2 bags of cranberries in the freezer and next season will buy more.
I like cranberries, blueberries and 1/2 banana on my waffle or french toast. Lately I add them to a lot that I did not in the past. Also add to my pineapple upside down cake - they are very good for you.

Oh, I'm "that way", too. Actually, kind of thankful not to be hardened to the plight and hardship of others.....Just wish I could do more FOR them.

I would rather have one friend who is sensitive to the plights of others than 1000 friends who are inured to the violence and brutality that are typical of much of today's entertainment.
