-not that every day hasn’t been bright, humid and with 90° + weather. I felt really low yesterday. That was probably the lowest I’ve felt since this whole thing started in March. I overdid it on Sunday with a 10 mile ride in the afternoon. I came home and threw myself into the she-pool and soaked. I was so thirsty that I couldn’t drink enough even though I took alot of water with me to drink and douse myself. Yesterday I felt like I had a hangover all day and was weepy. I hate Mondays like that.
Today is much better. I got up early and fed the cat and packed Charlie’s lunch and helped her get ready to go work. I feel like I’ve become the housewife in this situation. I’m Wilma from the Flintstones and Charlie’s Fred going off to the rock plant.
(And, I’m going to need to put my hair in a bun before this thing is over)
After I got her situated I went for a short walk – 2 miles is short for me – because I had a call at 9. I listen to Elton John’s Rocket Hour on Apple music. If you haven’t hear it you should tune in. He’s always featuring new music/musicians and it’s very hip. Here’s a video clip of his 150th episode:
Although, he just rolled over his 250th episode this past week. I just listened to it and it’s fantastic, so check it out!
Among other things, I made some really fantastic shrimp tacos last Friday. I’ve decided that tacos are for Fridays and birthdays – which, I have one coming up the end of this month. Here’s the taco recipe:
Plus, I marinated the shrimp again prior to putting on the grill with this recipe: Quick and Easy Cilantro Lime Marinade
I also cut up an ear of corn into mini sections and put them on a skewer and marinaded them as well. It all turned out very well! (according to Fred er Charlie)
So, we picked another batch of blackberries last Sunday morning and I canned 5 more jars. We have about 20 jars of different degrees of pepper spiciness in the pantry. I sent Charlie off this morning with a jar to give to a client/friend of ours. I’m thinking of making care packages out of them.
And, if you listen to Elton John’s Rocket Hour you will hear this song which is a new favorite: STFU – Rina Sawayama. Be prepared to turn this up and rock out. The video isn’t bad, either.
My sentiment matches hers when it comes to the news, the media and social media these days. I just want to turn it off and say STFU. I’m just really over everything. Wake me up when this is over. Send me my ballot so I can vote and let’s be DONE with it. And, wear a muthafuckingmask! PERIOD.
Ok, I’ve had my Tuesday rant. I think I’ve given y’all enough to chew on today. I hope you have a great rest of the week and I’ll probably check back in with you on Friday. Cheers!
