I feel a little like Rainbow Woman today.
I'm not leaving this house. I have no dr appointments, no commitments, no nothing. WOO HOO !!!
I do have a plan towards some cooking though. A stew of some sort. Either a Hobbit Stew (roasted root veggies) or perhaps a Caribbean Pork Stew. I want to bake some yeast rolls. I want to make a dessert of some sort. Pie, maybe?? Coconut custard maybe, with toasted coconut on top? I need to make some granola, himself has finished off the last gallon of it I made, and put the jar out IN PLAIN SIGHT so I wouldn't miss it. lol
That sounds like a day full of householding, doesn't it ? I have no intention of venturing any farther from the house than the chicken coop. It needs cleaning and the regular egg check. The rain is supposed to stop pretty soon, but so far it starts and stops. So...I had a sandwich. lol
I feel lazy. And tired. And am going to take this day slowly and mindfully. I have a new book, a crime thriller from the "Queen of Scandinavian crime fiction" Liza Marklund. I'll be resting on the couch off and on reading too. I've been traveling to town 3 x a week for chiropractic care for my poor neck and shoulders It's getting better. I had acupuncture on my knee yesterday too. Don't know if it has helped or not. But it isn't worse. I have also been hitting a LOT of meetings and appointments with people, and you know how I get when I am not home enough. Crabby. Irritable. Discontent.
Yesterday the only things I had to do were the chiro and then meet up with my niece and sister-in-law for lunch. Then I came home and read a little and lay on the heating pad. I had some chicken thighs in the freezer, so I got those out and put them into the oven and made a Paprika Chicken for supper. Smashed up some red potatoes with the jackets on and stir fried a big skillet of vegetables with Italian seasonings on them. Voila! We watched an old movie called With Honors as we ate...starred Joe Pesci, Brendan Fraser, Patrick Dempsey...quite good. I must have picked it up in one of my thrift store deals, because I don't recall having ever watched it, and it was marked 75 cents. lol
Well, it looks like the water has stopped, so maybe I'll head out to the girls and get cleaning. Maybe some fresh air will get me going, because honestly, I could sit at this computer all day.
The wrist is still sore, but getting a little better every day. I still have a bit of swelling and bruising that you can see, but all in all (even though it isn't healing fast enough) I feel optimistic. Sort of. Truthfully--last night I started writing this and was an emotional wreck. Wrote and wrote and wrote and will never publish it. But it was cathartic, apparently, and that's what I needed. Having a ..."life hasn't turned out like I'd planned and now I'm old" kind of moment. Boo Hoo. Thank God I have some tools today to help me through times like that.
Alright chickens, here I come...
