i’ve spent the last two days working on a slight overhaul of E’s blog; checking for broken links & making some small changes that he asked for. i think we’re both reasonably happy with it for the time being. go check it out if you want to.
i don’t think i will be posting a picture for Wordless Wednesday tomorrow, because i don’t have any pictures that are just screaming to be posted… but, something might change at the last minute.
i’m so happy that Spring is finally here. i’ve been able to open doors & windows to let in fresh air & sunshine — glorious. i have seeds that i need to start sprouting soon. i can’t believe that it will be time to get back to the garden soon! i don’t have my raised beds like i was hoping for, but things will be alright. *must remember to put a pot of catnip on the balcony for the kitties.*
So, i’ve been looking for some different things to cook lately… kind of bored with food and i love food. i’ve found a couple new things that are being veganized and added to the shopping list for this week.
Saag – making this for soup sunday (every sunday is soup day here at the parham palace).
Tortilla & Black Bean Pie - making this on friday evening (I don’t have a spring form pan, but i figure i can make do without one).
I’m looking for a couple ideas for next week and also a couple ideas for a tasty, but cheap dish that can feed a small army – please bombard me with recipes.
*don’t worry about whether or not your recipe is vegetarian/vegan, if things need to be altered to suit the taste of those eating it, i am quite capable of substituting things around.
still can’t find the gorram camera battery charger. i’d lose my fracking ass if it wasn’t attached. (wow! that was two sci-fi swear words back to back… i am so much the shazbot)
helped the kid put together a blog post for Pi day, yesterday. yeah, it’s a day late for you, if you haven’t already seen it, but it’s still cool. here it lives.
and on that note, Elijah and I both think you should check out the lovely and talented Vi Hart; her videos are amazing and a beautiful articulation of the shite running around in my head all day long, every day. enjoy.
I’m kind of crawling out of my skin these days… really need some warmer days and more sunshine. I usually do really well during the Winter months, actually enjoy the gray and the snow, but this Winter was a never ending stress induced coma of personal life drama and that combined with no sun and constant coldness made for one insane mama. I think I finally endured a Winter with SAD. Weird. I usually get a form of reverse SAD during the Summer – too much sun exposure and the fact that bright light makes my eyes feel like they are on fire and going to explode hurt.
I haven’t really gotten out of the house as much with the kid this Winter like I have in the past. For some reason, it has just seemed infinitely more difficult than in years past. The bus still goes to basically all the same places and I have access to the car about as well as I did last Winter and the Winter before that, we had no car and were out and about all. the. time. So, other than blaming not going out on my depression and not wanting to do anything because of personal life drama, I don’t know why we’ve lived inside all fracking Winter.
Oh, and not to mention that this Winter, E complained about the cold all day, every day. Apparently, this year, he was extra super sensitive to the cold. This made outings practically impossible.
Anyone else suffering from cabin fever or SAD or just the general Winter induced blahs? What do you do to shake ‘em off?
