  • Here I am at work. I was greeted by loud cheers when I walked in. Apparently they did not like the person who worked either the night or day shift! Hmmmmmmmmmmm.

    Had scallops, sweet potatoes, and zucchini jazzed up with salt, butter, and balsamic vinegar. This is orange day, I guess, given the amount of pumpkin I consumed this morning. I hope I don't turn orange!

    Tomorrow night is our first dress rehearsal! Very excited. This concert is going to be fun. I love to perform even though I am not very talented. Luckily it doesn't really matter as long as I don't screw up - and I won't. One thing I am very good at is watching the director. Another thing I am good at is knowing my vocal limits.

        Well, the cheers were louder than normal!

        I certainly have been sleeping well lately! Today was no different. Woke up in time to see the sunset! I have eaten all of the protein sources that I so carefully prepared last week and so I made a paleo pizza. Yes, it was spectacular. Too many carbs, however. Now I have a headache. Not worth it.

        Must get ready for our first dress rehearsal tonight. I should get a move on and get to the grocery store first since I am very short of nutrients around here.

        • I am totally out of control excited about our concert! The first dress went fantastically well, and it was so different to sing in the church, which has terrific acoustics. It is going to be really great!

          A guy that has been expressing an interest and has asked me to go out, etc. has been telling me that he is going to come to the concert for months - right from the beginning - told me this morning that his daughter has a swim meet on Saturday and he probably can't come. I was torn between being annoyed and being relieved. Although I knew he probably would not show up despite his assertions that he would, I was still annoyed when he came up with the swim meet/daughter excuse. So utterly predictable. At the same time this gives me carte blanche to write him off, which is a great relief. I'm very quick to eliminate men from the running, so to speak, and I know I should give them more of a chance. (Not like there are so very many...) But I feel I have been given a Get Out Of Jail Free card.

          Anyway, back to the rehearsal. We sounded so wonderful, I felt like angels were dancing on my eardrums! And that was just the choir, on Friday we rehearse with the soloists and the strings!!!!!! I am so excited.

          Came home and went into a cooking frenzy. Would you believe I got a five pound pork roast for $8? It is in the crock pot right now. It barely fit. In the morning I will cut it up and finish it in the oven. Also mixed up a double batch of paleo bread, half of which will go in the freezer. For eating, I had a large green salad with dulse and hemp seeds and bone broth with an egg yolk. (How is that for nutrient dense?) I have to wind down and get some sleep. Must hit the magnesium oil. I swear I am addicted to it - or my feet are!

          • I had to contain the luscious aroma from the pork roast so I could sleep! Hung my blackout curtain and partially closed the door. (Felines must have entry.) This morning I shredded up the roast - as one would expect the outside was very, very tender and the middle not so much. I have turned it on high and left off the lid. I already have quite a supply of bones and also some marrow bones that were being given away at the market.

            Today should be booch bottling day but I have a huge supply still, so I'm going to leave it. I should probably discard some of the booch in the fridge but I'm not sure which ones and I don't feel like going through them, so I will leave that project for another day. I also have some at work! I bought a couple of tangerines because I liked that flavor so well - last week I put some tangerine in a couple of bottles and it worked nicely. Hmmmm maybe should rethink this...would like some more tangerine booch...hmmmmm.....

            Slept very well and woke up with lots of cats all around me. After I fed them I sat down to drink my tea and they climbed all over me. I don't know why they are so affectionate after breakfast.

            Have some rather urgent chore-like things to do so I had better stop wasting time here!

              • Why thank you! I am sure we'll record it, although it don't know if it will be video. I am so excited about it, it is going to be so much fun and hopefully worthwhile for the audience who are kindly donating 1 1/2 hours of their lives to listen to us.

                Went to the pool and it was one of those days when I didn't want to get out - but get out I did because I have stuff to do.

                • Cautiously excited to hear Mark is going to have a PrimalCon in New York next summer. That would be great and very doable for me. I will definitely attend. I have always promised myself that I would go to a PrimalCon if Mark have one within a day's drive, and NY is fantastic. I am hoping he chooses upstate but anywhere will be good. For one thing, I don't even have to drive, I can take a bus (a really nice bus and very cheap too) or a train (also very nice but not so cheap). Okay, I am getting really excited now.

                  • New York is totally within my means too. Road trip!!!! Fingers crossed that it happens. Wouldn't it be cool to actually meet some of the great people on these forums?

                    • Yes, there are a lot of us. Maybe David will come! I'm getting a little ahead of myself and thinking that it will be upstate, which is so beautiful and great. Local food up the wazoo also!

                        • I would think it would HAVE to be upstate, to get the kind of place he usually has them at. Unless we're taking over Central Park in yurts.
