Yesterday I put a large beef roast in the slow cooker, but it wasn't done at midnight. I put the whole thing in the fridge and this morning I cut it up, whirled the sauce around in the chopper, added some more seasonings, and put it all back in on high. I prepped some pork chops, they are ready to go in when that is done. I should have no problems with getting enough protein during my next three nights of work. I haven't worked three in a row for awhile, wish me luck!
Feeling a bit lazy this morning. Can't decide if I want to go to the pool or not. My skin and hair are feeling extremely dry despite my ministrations (liberal applications of jojoba and coconut oil). It is sunny and cold, I think a short hike is in order.
That is one secret to living here in Maine. It is quite sunny. Even now, the dark time of the year when daylight is at its shortest, we have a lot of sunny days. It is the sunniest cold place I have ever lived. Maybe because it is on the coast, or just where it happens to be geographically. But I like the sun.
Yesterday I was looking through my drawers and found a swimsuit bottom from a suit that I forgot I had. The top is horrible, way too low cut and no support at all. Totally unsuitable for lap swimming, even if I weren't a D cup. But the bottoms fit perfectly and are cut very nicely. Better than the bottoms I have for my two-piece tank. I subbed them yesterday and was very happy with the result. Luckily they are black and they go just fine with the purple print top. I was thinking of getting a lycra short sleeve shirt because last winter I just about froze in the pool but so far this year (it is early days yet) the pool has been a good temp. Maybe they have adjusted things because LOTS of folks were complaining. I know a lap pool should be on the cool side, but it was ridiculous. More like a polar bear swim. I had to get out a couple of times after about 10 minutes because my fingernails were blue and I was shaking uncontrollably. Well, hopefully not this year. I will hold off on the lycra shirt because they are pricey.
