Day 127

Normally this would be a wishcasting Wednesday post.  But something happened on the way to Jamie's weekly post.  I got sidetracked by one of her older posts on the blog.  You know, when you are reading a post and the bottom has a list of "if you like this you might like that"  linkwithin posts.   Yeah, I spotted the one post she has The Clock that Taught Me Self Trust
And I started thinking.   Thinking about the million things I keep promising myself, the things I keep promising my blog readers that I just fail to follow through with.

That has to stop.   I have to keep these little promises I've been making.

So maybe, this is a Wishcasting Wednesday post after all.  Her question this week is "What do you wish to nourish?"   I think my answer is I wish to nourish my trust.  Trust in me, trust in the blogging world, trust in community.   I've been let down so often that have come to a point where I expect to be let down.  I expect things to bottom out.   No more of that.  

This blog you are reading right now, was meant to be a daily project for one full year.  I've already slacked off on that promise due to things, and I have to step up to the plate and do what I said I was going to do.

There is so much I want to talk about but have been afraid to do so.  Part of why I have so many blogs.  I hate the idea of offending one group when talking about stuff for another group.  I have to start trusting myself, my intuition, and the people who do stumbling into my life. 

To all the readers today as you intend for yourself, I too am aligned with you.

Day 126

Okay, so I did not make it in the last few days to blog.
Spent today with my sister which was oddly nice.  Went with her to look at a house.

No Jane Austen stuff this week. 

The last few days have been the kind of days were I have wanted nothing to eat but cheese chips. On a total junk food binge right now. Bad for my health and waist, but there must be something in them that my body is lacking... most likely salt.

Off to watch the movie Boon Dock Saints 2

Returning from break

So I'm back from my little holiday aka house sitting for mom.

The heat here has been over the top unbearable.  We're sitting in +29c and up with humidex of +39c and up for the last week.
Massive storm here last night that destroyed the airport roof and the parking lot.

Got into a strange argument with my uncle, who is a chef, about headcheese.   See, now I know headcheese is not really cheese.  It's like a mixed meat thing.  I would compare it more to Spam then to anything else.

I did finally finish reading As Always Julia  and found it good but little disappointing for what I was expecting it to be.

I, surprisingly, only gained 4 pounds while at mom's.  I say surprisingly and only because all I did was bake cookies and cakes and make bread puddings and jams and such.  Homemade pancakes on more then a few mornings too. 
I took a picture of the cookies.

Will be back tomorrow (if time allows) and back to the actual numbered day posts.

Day 125

Now, I have not left this blog. 

I've just been having a few weeks of gggrrr,  and that's not what I want to post on here. The point of this blog is to be stress free as possible.

Brief catch up,  I'm staying at my mom's while she's out of town, and having to use her computer.  Not a fun thing as it keeps crapping out on me.
Not much cooking happening other then a few basics like pasta and home made sauce.

Reading As Always Julia   still  and have been trying to read Persuasion  online because I forgot my book at my house. Persuasion of course being for book club.

Hope everyone is having a lovely summer. Be back on in a few days.
