This was a nicer day. Larry had some energy. We’ve been trying to start days off with more energy for him by taking an Ensure Max in the morning. Here’s hoping that it works. We watched Once Upon a Time in Hollywood with Fran, and she liked it. Great movie. Nicki was coming over this night, and Fran suggested that we cook something in the Instapot, and she chose Chicken Cacciatore. I think I may have been hesitant about the recipe due to all the vegetables, but damn, we all worked together to get the recipe done, including Larry, and including Nicki, and despite a small scare when a notice of ‘burn’ showed up on the Instapot’s screen (which comes up if you didn’t properly scrape the bottom of the container before starting pressure cooking), the food came out amazingly. Amazingly. I even ate all the mushrooms, onions, and bell peppers in it! ME! It was nice to have that night with everyone. Take the happy moments where we can. We then watched ‘Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood’ via Nicki’s screeners and it is a good movie – Mr Rogers plays a role in it, but he’s there almost as a guardian angels to the protagonist of the movie, who is going through all kinds of family drama including resentment, grief, anger and ultimately death. Hard movie to watch at moments for obvious reasons.
On a side note, I was able to complete the wedding album – I think it came out wonderfully. Got some advice from Nicki and she saw it and loved it. I ordered 3 copies – one for me/Larry, one for Fran, and also one for Nicki. I’ve paid an exorbitant amount of money to hopefully have it in hand by Dec 24, but we’ll see.
