    Back to the stuffed bell(end) peppers, done that recipe Badgergirl linked last week and they was ding dong.

    I take it you'd ran out of sweat by the nine mile mark....

    Dark room sounds like a result, one presumes that todays nap will be a better test?
    No, still had lots of juice.... just no motivation.

    Yup, today's sleep will be another test, though I was pretty impressed with yesterday's sleep. I normally get to bed @ 14:00 to 15:00, so it's full daylight outside when I go to bed. It was ovecast yesterday, so that may have helped some.....

    • Nice work on the sleep room. I love my sleep mask because I think it's a trigger to good sleep. IOW, my brain knows that when I put that on, I'm serious about getting some good zzzzs, so it shuts down and lets me sleep.

      Good run! I merely sprinted to the fridge a few times yesterday.

        yeah, I get that, and I naturally start winding down and getting sleepy @ noonish. The mask doesn't stay in place for long, as I toss and turn a bit, so it is more of an irritant than anything.

        Ya gotta a get the sprints in where you can!

        • It seems that the black-out curtains were a good idea. Haven't used the sleep mask at all this week.... and I seem to rest better..... now to do something about that futon......

          • Happy days on the dark room squire, good on ya, better rest is alway a bonus, I haven't done dark days for about 14 years now, me sleep was always crap when on them, was a virtual corpse by Friday.

            Futon, I'd have thought a man as illustrious as yourself would have a king size four poster?!

                • Ah, resigned to the slave pen....

                  I doff my cap if you made that, a good bit of oak involved there, fair play to you sir, your queen is well served.

                    There was a time I made a fair amount of our furniture. The bed, an armoire and chest of drawers are in the bedroom, a set of bed side tables and a coffee table in another room, a Morris chair with a round Mission style lamp table in the den, a drop leaf table in the breakfast nook, and a couple of things in the bedrooms I can't remember..... I went through a phase of insanity for the Arts and Crafts style of furniture.....

                    I still have a project list as long as Wilt Chamberlain's left leg to do yet....

                    • I do like a man who's good with his hands.
                      I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.

                        oh, I'm adequate at times.... I gets the jobs done.... may not be pretty, but it's thoroughly worked when finished!

                          All that and a smooth tongue, too!



                          Oh. All this talk of carpentry (husband uses this as a euphemism after watching a Swedish[?] film where the frustrated father would practise his woodwork while watching his nubile neighbour) has made me think of tongue and groove - something I rather lust after.

                            I'm partial to tongue and groove.... though it is sometimes hard to get right, but when done correctly is very satisfying... There is nothing worse than a glue starved joint!

                              I like panels of the stuff - very Regency. Decadent, I suppose to be so wanton with the wood, but nicely warm to the touch and gentle on the eye.

                                fortunaely wood is a renewable resource.... though some take longer to renew than others...
