BAD morning ride.
Something spooked me and I stepped on the scale and upticked myself all the way back to the gate.
I wonder how much my smartwool mountain climber socks weigh, anyway? They ARE thick.
I wonder how much tahini sauce I licked all together yesterday?
I wonder if Crabby Jacks would send Mikey a couple of po boys if I explained the situation.
It's chilly and it's supposed to rain like crazy so I'll finally finish cooking my chili. There's nothing wrong with letting it develop in the refrigerator for a couple of days. I am counting on this being a cozy easy chili chilly rainy day in thick socks and my softest thinnest sweater with the hole in the elbow. Reading in bed, smelling my flowers, doing my handwashables, <tangent:(OH! there's a filly named *In Lingerie* entered in the Oaks friday after next, that's the Derby eve race, it's my favorite. When I lived in Louisville they made the wreath of Lillies at my local Kroger store and I got to put a flower in it my own self just for running out of popcorn in the middle of the night in the middle of a novel. That was Your year JH/RA!! That was my Lilly!)tangent>
.. maybe fixing sharley's puzzle where she put that piece in that anyone can see doesn't fit, planning what to send Mikey just in case the unthinkable happens (things are not looking auspicious, the tilt-a-weight called me a 223
, Rat B@#$%d!), Really Looking for my good reading glasses, maybe even doing my biannual This Time It's Going to be Different plan for being able to locate any given spice jar in 5 minutes or less. Most of what I call *cooking* others would mostly call *looking*.
Days without going to the store: 1
Days without sending H to the store for just 1 thing: 0
I want a pink knife. H gave me a tomato knife 3 years ago for our anniversary. I was Thrilled. I told him he should just do all his future gift shopping at Williams-Sonoma because H doesn't shop online but only in the nearest Mall and I never get that sick feeling in my stomach when he comes home late from work carrying one of Their bags with a Hallmark card poking out the top. It's almost anniversary time too, I'd better go make a pink knife-scouting trip with my (secret agent) Son pretty soon. Soooo much less facial strain involved in the *surprised delighted thank-yous* than for, say, that
nightgown that time...
B-half a chicken breast, Bb, no tahini sauce.
s-3 swallows of milk
L-half a hamburger patty salad w/ blue (so blue) cheese oil n vinegar
s-I don't think the cup of chicken chili and 2 T fage I just ate was a snack exactly, but it wasn't exactly supper either. It's been a weird day. I get cravings from seeing the letters KK too close together too often in a short timespan?
then-two small slices of that spinach feta bake thing. It's better after a couple of days in the fridge. I am still hungry. I don't know whether it's the weather or the donuts or that weird wine I had last night or WHAT. I might fix a salad next. I feel like there's some important thing I'm forgetting to eat or something.....
s-medium size spinach salad with an ounce of feta, about 2 ounces of chicken and a tablespoon of tahini sauce.
D-one rectangle of chocolate (a just-right serving)
NO CELERY and PB???? I guess I finally got full (and tahini sauce IS PB, really, don't you think?)
Here's you and Calvin Bo-rail wearing my Lillies, JH/RA and the hat to go with it. You can wear it when the pool opens:
