Tuesday Twitters

                                 [Apple Crisp]

 It's late and I should be in bed. But I slept late this morning and now I've been careening around the web, reading new blogs and old friends and looking looking looking to try and find out the last name of that prince guy and his boyos from England.  I am so tired already of all the hype about the wedding...and--BTW, he uses Charles Mountbatten-Windsor. But if he ever becomes king he will drop the Mountbatten.  LOL  He  also has like 4 first names. Man.  Those rich people...they hog everything!!!!!!

  It was a nice day. I had lunch with a friend, nothing fancy, just pizza at a local place. But we had a great time, laughing and talking and I had no idea how badly I needed that. I have been isolating a lot...going to work and coming home and that's that. Not much interaction on a social level.  My pendulum swings from one extreme to the other...

   Saturday I will be cooking lunch for a group at a yoga retreat. I'm fixing a mixed salad and bread and 2 soups...one veggie minestrone and one that's a quinoa chowder.  That will be fun. I'm going to make a vinaigrette dressing and one creamy dressing of some sort.  And an apple crisp for dessert. Simple good food.

   This weeks starts my scaling back to only 5 days a week. It's gardening time, and I need more days to myself. I hope to get some seedlings in some dirt tomorrow...things are so wet here there will be no planting in the ground for a while. I'm glad we got some manure on the beds so that the rain could soak it into the dirt. I'm going to start some squash and maybe some peppers. I have a lot of my seeds already and need to pick up a bit more.

   I'm feeling all mama-ish about my grown married son of late.  I worry about him and know I need to keep my nose mostly out of his business and his marriage...but it ain't easy. It doesn't matter how old they get, they are still your babies.

   Alrighty. I'm heading for bed. It's almost 2 AM and I should be sawing logs already!!  ZZzzzzzzz.....

I'm glad you are cutting back on the hours you work.

You are isolating more and I am getting out and about more. My pendulum swing is due to dealing with all the health issues that were keeping me down.

And of course being on disability insurance since the shoulder surgery help a lot too!

Hope it begins to dry out a little in the next few days. The weather has been so weird.

Your late night posts are always read by me first thing in the morning, so I can wish you got a good night's sleep!

Sounds like you have a good plan here with the scaling back, the digging in the dirt, and trust me I'd give anything to be my mothers baby again, so he may not get it, but he will!!!

I understand the pendulum swing, it also for me depends on who I can get together with and spend time with...if that makes sense.

You are tempting me with your delicious food too!!

Hugs and love
