Cookies and Chemex

I’m getting the hang of this emptying nest.

My daughter has not been home this week. She has a friend visiting and they’re spending time together.

She texted me yesterday before they came by for a visit. It was nice to see them and be included in her life, but it wasn’t sad to see them leave. We do life together, but we have also acquired our own lives.

Today was yet another milestone.

My daughter and I love these little seasonal cookies made by Pillsbury. Yes, they are pure sugar and yes, they are made by a machine, but we cook and eat real food, so this is our splurge.

As I was pondering my choices for breakfast, I remembered the Easter cookies unopened in the fridge. I took one look at the doggos and said, “We’re having cookies and Chemex.”

I know they’re gross, but we love them.

This was a fine way to begin the day of this emptying nest. Cookies and Chemex.

  1. I love that you are embracing your empty nest and sharing the feeling with others. I was given a poem about letting go, as a friend thought I wouldn’t be able to, when our son left for college but they couldn’t be further from the truth, I thrive on seeing him thrive and I embrace new possibilities in my life.
