    emoticon Hey there. Thanks for the bloglove. And ain't that the truth about how long successes take? We get good at what we work at. Anyway, my plan is to expect to navigate the holidays with grace and joy. There will be some effort but most of the time it'll be just to remind myself that I'm going to a better place.

    The Shoes books - by Noel Streatfield. British, possibly pre- or post-WWI but I could be wrong on the timing. "Ballet Shoes." "Skating Shoes." "Dance Shoes." "Theatre Shoes." I'm not sure how many there are, but the stories center on young girls who take up studying whatever is performing art of the book. And of course encountering trials and tribulations of being a kid in England during whatever time period it was, as well as the normal problems of being a child. (I vaguely remember one girl was living with an aunt because her parents were missing due to the war, but I'm not positive about that.)

    Just wonderful books, so well written, and a slice of life from a different country and different time period. I loved them as a child.

    Also the E. Nesbitt books - lovely magic books, and the children are often sent off to stay with relatives living in the countryside, rather than staying in London during the bombings in the war. Or maybe she was the one writing around WWI. I'm bad at history, but I do remember enjoying these books as a child as well.

    thanks for stopping by the blog - i made the soup in the stovetop pressure cooker because it comes up to pressure a little faster than the instant pot (and releases faster too), and we were sitting in the kitchen anyway. otherwise i would have used the instant pot - 5 minutes on manual, 10 minutes release, and include the mushrooms with the other vegetables. i added soy sauce, braggs aminos, and sambal oleek (because everything tastes better with soy sauce, braggs, and sambal:-). when it was done i added a lot of miso, and the tofu. came out great!
