saturday bits and bytes

Saturday, February 28, 2009

Pete took this photo during a self-portrait session this morning; I needed a shot for my website, which I am updating today. I like the mood of this shot, the soft light, the gold bokeh in the background.

It's quiet today. The wind outside is blowing the warm air out and spitting random raindrops onto my windows. We're supposed to get severe weather soon. I have periodic spasms that let me know that the barometric pressure is unstable. It's true what the old-timers say - you really can feel it in your bones.

I got up before Pete and Piper and got a bit of work done this morning; I have more to do before the day is done.

Piper got into my misplaced pills while I was shooting, and wrangled another bath out of us by covering herself in salmon oil (she just had one last night). I'm grateful everything I take is food-based, and that she won't be harmed by anything. I'm afraid that doesn't really atone for my brain-fogged, bad mom moment. Ahem. I have to get over it. She's fine. Fishy, but fine.

I made a new vegetarian chili for lunch. Soup is always wonderful for a gray day, you know. The cinnamon and cardamom twisted this right out of the Mexican chili I'm used to eating, but it was fantastic with corn chips and avocado. My mother-in-law will love this one - it uses bulgur wheat!

I'm excited that tomorrow, I'll get to post an article I wrote a few months ago for Ungrind.

Pete has left with Piper now to go find a movie for me that he's wanted to get me for a while. It's not one he's terribly excited to watch, but he doesn't get terribly excited about flowers either, and he likes to buy those for me. He really is very kind to me. As husbands go, this one is the best, I think.

And now I suppose I should get back to work. I hope your Saturday is lovely!

Honey--I had no idea you were such a babe, being only a newcomer to your site/life. You are beautiful.

LOL - Laura, Pete instructs me to respond and tell you that he agrees!

Thanks for the compliment - you got a blush outta me!
