It’s That Late Already?

I guess it is. Wow.

For once, I actu­al­ly remem­bered to go out­side to SEE an astro­nom­i­cal event. I get emails from NASA to tell me about such things, but I usu­al­ly for­get to actu­al­ly watch them.

The red col­or was neat, and very dif­fer­ent from the lunar eclipse I remem­ber see­ing as a child.

curiousmay9 and I had a fair­ly low-key evening while sam­bear and shad­owkatt were at the bal­let. (They report that it was very good.) rid­inrab­bit made an all-too-brief appear­ance, but we did­n’t do our nor­mal Wednes­day night din­ner with her.

Yes­ter­day, curiousmay9 brought home some deli­cious steaks from the Dekalb Farmer’s Mar­ket. She cooked them this evening with a lit­tle gar­lic and lemon pep­per olive oil. YUMMY!

She also cooked some chick­en, which will be the base of anoth­er meal in the next cou­ple of days.

I tried a pome­gran­ate as well as some miso soup. The miso was­n’t bad, and I’ll keep it in mind for times when my tum­my is unhap­py. The pome­gran­ate was fair­ly tasty, but I can’t quite get past the “eat­ing seeds” thing.

I’ve tried more new foods in the last six months than in the pre­vi­ous decade. I’m eat­ing more fruits and veg­eta­bles than at any oth­er time in my life. I find it amus­ing that these pos­i­tive changes in my life—which would amaze my parents—have come about because of a rela­tion­ship that my par­ents find appalling.

I feel good about what I got done today, though I’ll prob­a­bly pay for it tomor­row. Seri­ous kitchen clean­ing, many loads of laun­dry, bring­ing in the trash and recy­cling bins, water­ing the gar­den, and repot­ting sev­er­al plants does­n’t sound like much. It is for me, though! 

We need to thin the spinach this week, after which we’ll eat baby spinach from our own garden.

curiousmay9 has been doing some trig­ger point ther­a­py over the last week or so. We were both a bit leery, as we’ve see way too many snake oil sales­men over the years. 

It’s work­ing quite well, though. I treat­ed a trig­ger point on her hip tonight for the first time, and I do hope it helps her as much as it’s help­ing me.

shad­owkatt got an incred­i­bly cool birth­day present. I’m leav­ing the telling up to her, but I’m get­ting impatient!

sam­bear has some good news, too. 

Sleepy now. Good night!
