    • Or whipped cream

      • I've already made the Mexican chocolate pots! But will probably serve them with whipped cream.

        But I'll probably have a heart attack before Wednesday. Why am I so nervous? What's the deal? Is this what being primal does to you? Maybe I should sedate myself with grains! (Just kidding - not the method I would use.)

          • Wine made it worse! But I am at work tonight. Somewhat of a sedating effect there!

            • Hi Siobhan
              Just dropped by to thank you for taking time to read and comment on my newly forming journal I really appreciate your kindness and it is encouraging to be encouraged by someone who is working this long term.

              So I just read your intro and really enjoy your writing style, which to me is very readable, easy and warm.

              I now need to do some catch up reading and get a feel for your journey.

              Love that you had an insight via your cat, which inspired you to come here. I'm owned by a wonderful cat too; and she was part of the inspiration. I was on a heavy grains/legumes low fat diet and not doing well and exercising tonnes. Returning from a mornings' slog to find that 'her majesty' had not budged; was sleeping as I left her, on a warm bed and didnt need to exercise like a maniac.

              It occurred to me that she was eating correct diet for her species and that maybe I could find some improvement there too. Hence primalling.

              Love the Thoreau signature. Reading Walden was a game changer for me and remains a permanent inspiration.

              Blessings!

              • I am loving the giddiness in your journal right now. Waiting for Wednesday (and the Thursday write-up) with bated breath!

                Comment


                • This morning I am really embarrassed! I feel much more even keeled. It's like a drug, this romance/attraction thing! I wonder if I'm doing the right thing. I could break it off now and no damage done - I'm sure we could still work together just fine. I don't know, I don't know...my feet are cold.

                  Feckin' squirrel has destroyed my birdfeeder. Grrrrrrr. Just when the goldfinches are turning gold. It is so much fun to watch them turn colors. Yesterday they had gold patches all over, today they are pretty gold. Amazing stuff. What if we turned colors like that? Would be so cool.

                  Thanks for stopping by, Neelah! I really like your journal.

                  • So excited for you for Wednesday (aren't we all?) ... will be thinking of you. Meal sounds spot on ... yum!

                    I was also excited about your woodpecker ! I had to look it up as we don't have that sort here in UK. WoW! Seems huge. Get the birdfeeder fixed pronto as you seem to have all sorts of fun birds coming to visit you. xxx

                    • Yes, that woodpecker is larger than the birdfeeder and looks kinda prehistoric. I'm off to look for a good one this afternoon. I do get great birds, wonderful songbirds. Soon the thrushes will be back, that is a happy time.

                      My excitement over having K over here tomorrow is tinged a little by uncertainty...as in what am I doing? I don't know anything about building relationships. Part of me is wishing I had never started this. Part of me is wanting to call the whole thing off. I hate feeling weird at work and I'm feeling weirder every day. This morning in the our usual raucous report (me rather tired and punchy, everyone else filled nervous energy) one of the guys said some stuff that was quite innocent, jokingly, but he would never have spoken like that if he had any idea that K was a little more than a friend. In addition to weird, it also makes me feel somewhat second class, like I'm Number 11 on a list of 10. Of course, OTOH it can work in my favor because no one thinks twice about saying anything about K to me and I'm in the loop in that regard. Oh the tangled web we weave!

                      • No decent birdfeeders to be had in the area! Arrgh. Will find one, though.

                        Chorus tonight, can't sing worth a damn. Got no top notes and no low notes. Hmmm.

                        Bought fixings for tomorrow. Couple of nice ribeyes (not grass-fed, alas), fingerling potatoes, bottle of white zin for him (he likes it, no one's perfect). Shallots and mushrooms for a sauce. Already have salad. I have rice crackers and goat cheese, but probably won't break those out. Just too much food. Although I might think about bacon. Bacon is always appropriate.

                        • I'm going to just go live in the forest. Build myself a treehouse.

                          • You'll be fine. It's scary, but good scary.
                            I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.

                            • Nope. Going to the forest.

                              • I have two words for you: Treehouse Master

                                You have good food, good company and ok booze (not judging too much on the white zin) so the evening is already a win. Anything beyond that is just juicy gravy!

                                I bought two of these feeders almost two years ago and they have held up to crazy squirrel attacks and large blue jays and crows. And I have chubby squirrels, which keeps the hawks happy! Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® III Feeder 2 Pack, Model # | Birdfeeders.com
