Back to the Kitchen
It seems I spent most of Saturday in the kitchen. I had picked some of my chard and kale from the front yard, and I needed to use them. The kale had sprung up by itself next to the garage. Here’s what I did with a previous batch of home-grown kale.
I tried a new recipe this time, one with chicken, kale, and onions. We both loved it. I will be posting it soon on Niume, another site where I often make short posts on my daily adventures. I also made a batch of black bean soup so now there is something hot to eat at night. It’s been so long since I cooked anything from scratch I’d almost forgotten how.
Writing Kept Me Very Busy
It seems I spent a lot of the weekend listing and updating deals between Black Friday and Cyber Monday. I deleted the post today since the sales are over. I don’t think I will handle those deals the same way next year. Here are some of the posts I wrote over the weekend that are still up.
- Everyone in the Middle of Nowhere — more about our trip to Madera
- Late November Sky Show –sunset photos
- Gloria Vanderbilt Jeans for Pear-Shaped Women: A Review
- Construction Near Shandon Rest Area on Highway 46
- Souvenir Gifts with San Luis Obispo County Scenes
I was also editing the deals that were coming and going on a couple of older posts on another blog. Now you know why I didn’t post here over the weekend.
Shopping the Cyber Weekend Deals
After listing all those good deals, I decided I might as well take advantage of them to get some things we needed while the prices were low. We’ve already gotten some of our orders, and I expect more tomorrow. I also have some things to return to Land’s End that didn’t fit. They were too BIG. Kosta loved his new wool sweater from them, though. Shopping is a lot of work, even when you do it online. Still beats fighting the crowds in the stores.
Exercising and Reading – Finally
I love reading, but I haven’t had much time for it this weekend. After our trip to Madera before Thanksgiving, I had a lot of work to catch up on. That also kept me from exercising. I finally got back to the gym on Monday night and spent an hour on the stationary bike, reading.
Exercise is good for me, but I always get interested in the book I started reading on the bike and don’t want to stop reading it when I get home. And the book I read? Lake House Secret, by Debra Burroughs, a mystery / romance novel. I may review it one of these days. I enjoyed it.
I think it’s bedtime now. I will leave you with a photo of my chard, most of which is still growing in my front flowerbed.
