I never imagined there’d be so many interruptions when I first set out to “blog.” Back in 2011 my plan was to scope out tasty things to cook (and eat!) and share them regularly — with scenic photos and miscellaneous thoughts to distract you in between lapses. So far I seem to be doing pretty well on the lapses. But, I’m still inspired!
Adapting has become a way of life. Living. Cooking. Eating. Every day is different, and today has been nothing short of glorious.
I feel blessed to state that.
It was “too cold” (for those of you who live in my former home State, 50º — I’ve officially become an Okie, lol) to open windows and finish painting the kitchen, so I concentrated on stove-top pursuits instead. Beef Stew. Polenta made with homemade chicken stock and a whole lotta love. 50 minutes of stirring beats 50º in my book any day.
I also practiced piano, cleaned the bathroom, started a letter to my pen pal (that’s the beauty of letter-writing; an immediate response isn’t required and interruptions are par for the course), and took photos of my progress. (Distraction is my middle name, lol.)
The light in the next photo knocked my socks off. I love California Olive Ranch EVOO!
Mid-afternoon I treated myself to a heart-warming glass of Australian Cabernet — a gift from a friend — and thought how wonderfully it’ll go with tonight’s dinner. (Thank you.) Sneak peak of my kitchen paint color, too — aptly named: “Autumn Fog.”
Nothing else much to report from the lake, other than wind and waves typical for this time of year. As I said, glorious.
Enjoying what’s left of October,
