Let’s get started

19 Nov

Someone suggested I start a blog. I’m not sure how this will go, but here goes. This is just going to be my thoughts, feelings and things I find along the way.

Today I thought about starting a cookbook. Here’s the first recipe as I posted it on Facebook.

My favorite is “Whatchagot stew”. A package of meat from the freezer in the bottom of the pot. Yes, frozen. Who plans anymore? Add any and all veggies hanging out in the bottom of the chiller drawer, even the wilted ones. Some potatoes and onions if you got them. A can or two of whatever veggies you have in the cupboard and maybe a can of beans(with the liquid, potatoes always need salt). Add a seasoning packet or two from a ramen package, save the noodle part for later. Add some water, usually half a pot, don’t worry, it’ll make more. Let sit on low all day or high if you started at noon when you realize you forgot to plan dinner. Just before eating, check for taste. Probably needs salt, remember those potatoes? Also pepper, garlic powder, parsley if you’re lucky enough to have it. Now crush up those ramen noodles you saved from earlier and add them. Stir through. By the time you find all the kids and get them washed and to the table, dinner is ready. Just add milk and bread and butter. Said kids will love you forever. Or at least until you take away their phone for not taking out the garbage and helping with the dishes. Enjoy!

I also need a place besides Facebook to keep my Gratitude List.

  • Today I’m grateful to really start a blog. I hope it goes well. I’m grateful to be feeling better from my tooth extraction. It’s making me spunky. Grateful to have my child here today. No matter how often we fight, argue and generally disagree, I always have his back. I remember a time when he wasn’t sleeping across the room. LOVES

I’m grateful tonight for getting through my MRI this morning. Two hours in a little tube was interesting. I’m grateful tonight to get a second day in a row of over 5000 steps. I hope to get more when I get my new Rx shoes. I’m grateful for a warm, fuzzy blanket. Soft and cozy is always good.

I’m grateful today to watch the swearing in this morning. It was so affirming to hear the wonderful young lady saying the poem! And everything else. I’m grateful to get laundry, dishes, my room and a few other things done today. Clean pj’s and bed are so enjoyable. I’m grateful to make some delicious potato soup tonight for dinner. And I’m getting better with the quantities. Very little leftovers.

Starting to feel a bit better. Its difficult to be sick. I’m pretty sure I’m sick because I’m depressed about the pandemic and being stuck at home all the time.

I’m grateful for tuna casserole for dinner. I’m grateful to get my dishes done. I’m grateful I woke up today.

Night all. LOVES

I’m grateful for antibiotics that hopefully will help heal my kidney infection. I’m grateful for in-office doctor appointments because sometimes you just need a face-to-face visit. I’m grateful for afternoon naps when you don’t feel better.
