After being sick for three days, eating mostly Ramen soup and drinking my weight in tea (and honey, until my throat felt better), let's just say I was itching for something a bit more normal to me. Of course, by "normal" that unfortunately means junk food and sweets more than anything else. I had to … Continue reading I might have accidentally done something stupid that could curb my junk cravings (hopefully for good)…
I had a major victory today for my life before I went to work. At least, for my immediate present and future. I finished the dishes. Considering I'd been avoiding them for a week, that's a helluva accomplishment these days. I can't help it. I HATE doing the dishes. Even something so mundane as unloading … Continue reading The Secret of Cooking & Comedy is the same: timing
That's probably my fave part of the film. Still don't think I've seen the whole thing. Anyhoo-- My plans were a bit boring. I didn't get to bed til about 1:30, and with only the furry kids in the house today, I took my time waking up. I gave 'em hugs for puppy kisses, fed … Continue reading My Christmas today could’ve been a cut-scene from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
I'm not generally the type of person who takes pictures of their food and posts it on social media every day... or ever. I had so much fun making THIS particular meal, though, so yeah... I had to document the occasion when I made something palatable on my new grill. The first thing I had … Continue reading Working on healthy food, or, my first adventure in grilling…
Funny how that could apply to a house or the human body--both, in my case. I mean, the maintenance part will work well with the house (working on that). The body's nearly at "gotta fix what's broke" stage. I'm not saying that because I hate my body or anything (okay, I'll admit, sometimes I do--a … Continue reading Maintenance is far better than having to do a major fix later…
Let's say my To-Do list for this week has totally gone by the wayside. I should be working on a bunch of stuff and getting my instruments in tune to play. Part of me blames a day-long headache for what's happened, and a lousy nap that barely took the edge off. Maybe it shouldn't be … Continue reading Waste of a Hot Sunday… a little of this and a lot of nothing.
My house still needs to be put in order and family crap is in the way. I've gone a little nuts buying fruit trees, though, so each day (if the weather's cooperated), I've managed to plant one in the past week and a half. I now have six more to go, and just have to … Continue reading The Joy of Work (-ing, on what you want to work on anyway, that is)
Boy I love going to get a massage. When I let the craziness of the past weeks drift away, I can really think, and think really hard about what I need or want to do most. My initial goals about music and art and reading books haven't changed a bit, but I really have to … Continue reading I’m giving myself the rest of March to clean up the place: house, pantry, body, all of it.
I love Super Mario Bros. Anyhoo... I suppose being sick for over a solid week has just screwed me up. First it was allergies, then it was a full-blown cold. The weather can't make up it's mind. it's supposed to be in the 80 degree range this week then jump straight into summer, at least, … Continue reading Digging that side tunnel: a cousin to rock-bottom
In the Battle of the Bulge (where I attempt to vanquish the tire around my middle), this is probably the biggest question I could ask myself. My body wants good, healthy food and has no energy because I don't give it what it wants. That's mostly because of my "good intention-killing" taste buds. I've written … Continue reading #032–Can you train your taste buds to want healthy fruits & veggies instead of processed crap?
