It’s quiet in our house. The pups are snoozing. We don’t even have the TV on for background noise (actually a fairly rare thing with my hubby). And it’s raining. We’re having a nice low key, lazy day after all the family has gone. I’m in COMFY CLOTHES.
I’ll be doing a fair bit of cooking later to prep for the week. I wanna try making a variation on this Chipotle Butternut Squash Soup, which showed up in my inbox this morning. It was providence. I’ve got a butternut squash that needs using. I had intended to start my calorie and macronutrient counting a couple of weeks ago, and then everything blew up. Something always has to go when things like that happen and detailed measuring and counting of things tends to be it. I can narrow it down to “eat real food” instead of processed crap, and that usually gets me through. Of course after 2 days of eating beef (which no longer agrees with me), I’m now paying for it. One does not complain at the offerings of a funeral spread. It’s super rude. So detox this week.
I finally started playing Dragon Age Origin yesterday. I died a couple times while I remembered how the heck to game on a computer as opposed to a video game system. Got super excited last night when Susan told me I can get a dog. Having pets was one of my favorite parts of playing WoW. We won’t talk about how much time I have invested in the past figuring out the right name for said pets. It’ll probably take me a year to get through the game playing in little fits and starts, but at least I started.
Round 4 of ROW80 starts tomorrow. I need to give some thought to my goals for the round. Maybe after a nap. Or some reading. Or both.
I just have…nothing interesting to say today. I’ll see y’all tomorrow.
