Okay, I'm retracting my endorsement of the chocolate pots. DON'T MAKE THEM. Back away slowly...slowly...don't look, no no don't look, nothing to see here...
The little ramekins of deliciousness are burning a hole through the door of my refrigerator, begging to be consumed...this is worse than Brazilian cheese bread. Must resist...must...
Funny how my newest cat is the one that is the friendliest and most affectionate. He loves to play and sit on my lap. Follows me around and talks to me. Eats everything I give him with great enthusiasm.
Went for a hike at my favorite spot and climbed up onto a very large fallen tree. I mean this is a monster tree, and it fell with all the roots and several smaller trees attached. I can walk on it, and I am about six feet in the air. This is amazing for me as I am terrified of heights. Not exactly a balance, but sort of. Also I did some more rolling. I practiced walking, dropping into a roll and then up and walking again in a smooth motion. It's quite easy. Who would think?
The ground was covered in violets, purple and white ones, and also a tiny white flower with a yellow center and lavender-tipped petals. Beautiful!
I think you're finding your inner child in all this play-time :) what a joy to read of your adventurous activities!
I'm just crazy!
Slept great in my cave this afternoon. Love my cave. But I'm kind of tired now. Been running around like a crazy person at work for two hours nonstop, little break now. I'm earning my keep.
Went swimming after work. It is great fun to do that, but it wakes me up A LOT. I can't really go to sleep afterward. I slept very well but not long enough.
Woke up to find a text from my brother. My mom's oldest friend died on Friday. Oldest both in age and in length of friendship - 30 years or more and she was 93. Thankfully it was quick and peaceful - an acute M.I. (a heart attack). My mom is of course upset. She was supposed to have lunch with her on Friday, luckily her friend had the presence of mind to tell her daughter to phone my mom. I'm glad my mom didn't have to go sit in a restaurant waiting for someone who would never arrive.
Felt horribly bloated and fat yesterday. I wasn't really, just felt that way. Need more veg. Must make the cauliflower recipe from today's MDA. Looks great. I'll probably add some fish sauce, maybe a little tomato paste. Can't have too much umami.
Back to work tonight.
Well here I am at work. Some time ago I decided not to post anything about my co-workers any more because it seems wrong and snarky and mean-spirited. But I just saw a co-worker that I have not seen in some weeks and she is on Cloud Nine, flashing a diamond ring. Now this sounds horrible, but she is not attractive, she is dumb and uninteresting, she is older. HOW IN THE HELL DOES EVERYONE HAVE SOMEONE EXCEPT ME? WHAT THE EFF?!?!?!?!
Because you can afford to be choosy
Well, I may not have a man, but the spambots love me.
Thanks, Judy, and you are right!
And you don't need a man to be happy........you have found true inner happiness! :)
And hey, I got TWO spammers in one night! I am so popular! :rolleyes:
Made the recipe on Saturday's MDA. Many mods, but basically the same. I cut up a couple of grass-fed hot dogs and so had a one-pot meal. Really delicious. I added coconut aminos and fish sauce and a splash of cream. No celery as I didn't have any. I didn't make the quantity called for in the recipe as frankly that seemed insane. TWO heads of cauliflower? Maybe if I had six people to feed, not to mention the cost.
Worked all night, came home and washed up and then went to church. Was my usual punchy self as I don't really operate very well when I've been up all night. Came home and collapsed. It is not a good idea to do that, but I did today because the choir was very sparse and I felt I should. Slept for 4 or 5 hours. No work tonight, but then I have three in a row.
I got a nice surprise last night. My choir's performance of the Brahms Requiem was videotaped and is up on Vimeo! It is exciting for me because it is the only way for me to actually hear us...and we sound good! Not the greatest recording, but I am so glad it was done.
