…but, geez, this is a little much. Prince, who happens to be a big deal here in Minneapolis (for good reason), wrote a beautiful song entitled, Sometimes it snows in April. This has become our mantra recently, though the song has nothing to do with snow or weather. Har!
Welcome to my reality:
This is depressing. Not warm enough today for any of it to melt, and more sleet/snow forecast for tomorrow night! Instead of crying, I decided to roll with the punches and enjoy being inside. So I made quiche!
Asparagus Spinach Quiche (made with mostly almond milk and a little bit of whole cow’s milk, and goat cheese); the crust is a pre-made gluten free pie crust. One of the tastiest quiches I’ve made so far!
Despite the warming powers of the quiche, my mind is still firmly set on Portland and a more temperate climate! Check out the difference, while not great, it’s a least preferable.
So, again, I have had a strong feeling for a while now that I’m not going to be living in my current home state much past my 40th birthday…this June. I have no idea where I will end up though I have a few places that I have strong leanings toward (London, Chicago, Boston, New York, Seattle…to name a few).
I never, actually, thought about Portland but just last week I discovered a job opening there. Not just any job but working with one of the “leaders” of the theoretical orientation that I use in my psychotherapy practice. Outside of a wonderful training last winter, I have relied mostly on the great many books that guide one on the techniques and process.
It would be a dream to work with this guy. And it would allow me to again do didactic group therapy, which I found out I love. This from the girl who skimmed the group work section in grad school methods classes because I hate (I thought) doing groups!
So, now my mind is on Portland as a potential destination.
I love the above clip; though I question if I am a bit masochistic given how their winters seem to be.
So what say you west coasters? Or even those from Portland…pluses and/or minuses about Portland?
