  • Buttercream, made with Kerrygold.

    !!

    That is all.

    • I can't remember what buttercream tastes like! I can eat Kerrygold just plain, though. Mmmmmmmm

      Busy here at work. Seems like half the people can't breathe and the other half have chest pain.

      • Well, a few days of paleo and I gave myself a lovely case of the low carb flu. I haven't been tracking my food but I am surprised because I have eaten abundant fruit and of course I documented my sweet potato frenzy a couple of days ago. I didn't realize what it was at first - I woke up with a terrible headache, ached all over, slight nausea. Felt like flu! I ate some steak and eggs, stumbled around, tired, tired, tired, actually considered calling in sick. Pulled myself together and went to the food co-op as I usually do before work. A gluten-free carrot muffin called to me and within ten minutes of eating it I felt like a new woman. Oh dear! Must keep sweet potatoes around the house - I was wishing for one this afternoon - and maybe some bananas. That is a lot better for me than gluten-free baked goods.

        Otherwise all is good.

        • Oh my taste for sweet things has really changed too. Sugary cakes have just lost any appeal they ever had and even an apple can sometimes taste too sweet. It's kinda funny, but helpful because the wrong things just don't even seem to tempt me now.

          As for your gluten free muffin, well it did the trick without being toooo bad for you. Although I must say your sweet potato chips sound very yummy and good for you too.

          • Feeling much better today but oddly have lost my appetite, a very uncommon occurrence. Don't worry, I am still eating. At work again, my third night. I slept quite well today and so I feel pretty good. I will be glad for a night off, though. One problem with working nights is there is never any real relaxation time. It is always a countdown until the next shift. When you get home in the morning, it's a race to get to sleep and then back to work. There is no unwinding with a glass of wine or lingering over a nice meal. It is such a relief to get home and think, "I don't have to do anything else today!" To get up and just hang out, sit on the sofa and look out over the water without hearing the clock ticking away the minutes. But these kinds of things are what makes life so sweet. If I never had anywhere to go or anything special to do, those moments wouldn't be so enjoyable. And there is always something to look forward to.

            • Good morning, just catching up. For the insect swatting, consider getting one of those bug zappers that looks like a tennis racquet. They're just a few dollars at your local Harbor Freight store. Probably only a dollar at the Dollar Store...

              A little game of "redneck badminton" can be quite entertaining.

              I understand the countdown to the next shift thing. It always looms over one's head, affecting all the other aspects of the day. I pray you give yourself some decompression time on the days off!

              • What is this bug zapper thing? I know not of it! It sounds intriguing. I must investigate. I need one!

                Well, today has been a day of disasters. But you don't need to feel too sorry for me, all First World disasters. Got home from work, probably don't need to tell you that I was really tired, and broke a mirror. A full-length one. Gads. Then the door to my kitchen fell off its hinges. The screws actually pulled out of the wood. Probably this beastly heat had something to do with it. It is a big, heavy door, solid wood. Then I was sleeping in my cave and the air mattress developed a leak - I believe a cat claw had something to do with it - and I woke up sinking, sinking, sinking. The good part of this story is that I think the cot is more comfortable without the air mattress. It has settled nicely since I got it a couple of months ago. But it was a little disconcerting to have to leap up in the middle of sleeping time and wrestle the half-collapsed mattress into the hallway. Somewhere in the melee I misplaced my phone, which I normally keep under my pillow to check the time. Spent 45 minutes looking for it and was late calling my mom, which worries her horribly.

                Today is hot, hot but not as hot as it was. I would go to a movie, but it is the Lone Ranger thing and I have no interest at all. I have projects around the house I was looking forward to, like hanging up a new poster, but this is not a good day for projects. I wonder if the water is warm enough to swim in? I wonder when high tide is today? Must check.

                • On this hot day, here is a photo of me snowshoeing last winter. What a fun day that was!

                      • Thank you! I am getting one today! Why didn't I know about this? BTW BZM, love your sig.

                        Hey, I look a lot happier in the snow picture than I do today, let me tell you. I am done with this heat, but I'm afraid the heat isn't done with me. Was woken out of a lovely sleep this morning by severe itching on the side of my face. There is a mosquito somewhere digesting a good bit of my DNA.

                        Dinner last night was some leftover steak and sweet potato fries. I only made half the SP this time because who am I kidding? All the fries will be consumed. And they don't keep well anyway. I had to wait until the temperature dropped enough to turn on the oven.

                        • Love your snowy pic. I have never done snowshoeing, it sounds like a lot of fun.

                          and of course all the fries will be consumed So well done on only making just enough.

                          • Snowshoeing is great fun and kind of amazing. With proper snowshoes you can rapidly move through really deep snow quite easily. It's kind of like magic. I lucked into getting a really nice set on sale - I didn't know anything about snowshoes at the time, but the ones I bought are among the best.

                            I'm afraid to look at the weather forecast for today, although it is quite cool right now. I dug out an old slip to sleep in. Even a tee shirt is too hot.

                            • Well I don't have any really deep snow to move through, but if I did i would sure love to try snowshoeing. It's winter here, there's fresh snow on the mountain, just enough to make footprints in with my boots, which is exciting enough for me for now.

                              My electric blanket is on the bed, so I'm about to snuggle in. I know it's hard for you to imagine.

                              • That sounds wonderful, Annie! Yes, it is true, I won't be doing any snuggling today. More like trying to see how little clothing I can get away with and still remain decent. I'm trying to like summer but it is hard. From the crowds in town to the beastly heat, it is just not fun.
