Day Two, about to turn three: after the pantsuit pictures, the “I Voted” selfies, late night refreshing of the New York Times homepage, the shock, the disbelief, the crying in the shower, puffy-eyed and zombie walk, what should we do now?
1. Celebrate these women
for their historic firsts during this election: Ilhan Omar, Kate Brown, Tammy Duckworth, Kamala Harris, Pramila Jayapal, Catherine Cortez Masto. Ranging from our first Somali American Muslim woman elected to state legistlature, to first female senate from Nevada, these women shone in their own right and deserve our congratulations.
2. Pick a cause that’s important to you that might get eliminated during the Trump administration: donate and be active. Many peopole I know donated to Women’s Right
in honor of Hilary Clinton; LGBT, the environment, national parks, to name a few.
3. Go exercise: run outdoors, dance, swim, beat up an orange bean bag; because you know, endorphin releases sress and makes people happy.
4. Make a pie: I made my first key lime pie! I followed this recipe
I made my whipped cream topping by hand. Something therapeutic about beating the heavy cream into peak:
5 Make a Pot of Soup. With the flu and cold nights, I made a pot of homemade chicken soup from scratch for my family. Boil the pot for at least three hours and let the aroma dance in the air. It’s comforting and nourishing. We need a rest, to recharge. Your loved ones will thank you as they slurp that delicious goodness. Promise.
