A boring post.
I've had the concentration of a gnat on amphetamines the past few days so this will probably be the most boring entry in the blog world today. The random thoughts that do happen to pass through my mind are a lot like lightening but not nearly so pretty. It's just that time of the year again,,holidays just around the corner,,and thoughts of this dysfunctional family of mine, as well as the winter months ahead,,,all puts me in an awful mood.
And my feet are cold this morning! I don't like having cold feet but I hate wearing socks in the worst way. I awoke to temps around 42 and to the weatherman saying they'd soon climb up to near 90, I'd say this was Indian Summer, but since we haven't really had any fall weather yet, I don't think it qualifies.
I had some "good groceries" (as Alexis told me once) over the weekend. Saturday, since James had his first weekend off in awhile, he cooked steaks, cornish hens, and a pork shoulder on the grill. Much of the shoulder went with Bubbie to feed his horse barn crew at the prison but we chowed down on all the rest.
Sunday I cooked a pot of great northern beans, mixed turnip, kale, and rape greens, and a big pan of mexican cornbread to go with left-over cornish hens. I call a meal like that Southern Comfort Food except you're so miserable from being stuffed you can barely get up from the table after consuming it.
Monkey Nuts continued on with his blogger tour last week but not before being chewed on a little by Miz Jillian.
