In the list, as they are so efficient!
Picked apples. Good GRAVY, how have I lived in NY for 5 years and not ever picked and eaten Honey Crisp?? They are worth $1 a pound (over .50 more than the other varieties). I’m going back tomorrow to get more. I have eaten FIVE today.
Ran 10 miles. I skipped the 20 last week, but I’m all about the TAPER. 🙂 In two weeks from RIGHT NOW, I will have finished the last marathon I’ll run in a good while.
Weighed myself for the first time in about 6 months. And all my belly aching about gaining a few pounds was for not; I’m actually about 5 pounds down from my normal weight. I think it’s because I’m replacing muscle mass with flab, though.
Made four apple pies. No Honey Crisp in the pie, though. Macs. We’re eating it with vanilla ice cream. I love apple season. Love it. Was I just talking about flab? Get me another piece of pie!!
Made the HOTTEST curry I’ve ever tasted. It’s almost too hot to freekin eat, but I’m stubborn and ate two bowls for dinner last night. The first bite tastes wonderful, until you can’t feel your mouth or lips any more, and by the third or fourth bite your guts are warm like you’re drinking Wild Turkey. By the middle of the bowl you’re wondering whether you’ll ever be able to actually taste again. I had a bowl for lunch today but couldn’t finish it. I think it actually got hotter.
Used the word “Bourdieu-ness” during my diss-writing session today. Still wondering if that’s an effect of too much Panera coffee combined with too much staring at words on the screen, or if I really mean it.
Rode bikes with the kids to the park, where I sat in the warm grass and read papers and the kids swung and jumped from the swings repeatedly. The sky is bluer and the grass greener here than anywhere I’ve been. I kept getting distracted by the contrast of colors and the shrieks of delight coming from the swingset.
Cut Little J’s hobbit-like toenails. They grow so fast I can barely keep them a reasonable length, and his penchant for running around barefoot makes them impossible to get clean. He kicks and laughs and I risk getting clocked in the face, but I escaped unscathed this time.
