Think I’ve run out of things to say. Brain is blank. Nothin’ new there. Have a headache. Nothin’ new there. Ate more peaches. Nothin’ new there. Oh, oh, oh, took some pics today. Growin’ celery leaves. That’s new. A new experiment. Going to get more celery and grow more leaves. Not too crazy about the stalks, but love the leaves. Stalks have those big strings in them. Leaves have nice flavor. Can be used in soup, omelets, dressings, just about anything that calls for celery. Gives the flavor without the strings. A little bit hard to dip in peanut butter, but there are other things to dip in peanut butter. With a few more of these end pieces growing like this I’ll never have to buy celery again.
Aloe plant is thriving too. Train wreck background, but have been trying to clear off shelves. Will find place for everything eventually. Have some books of photos Sylvia took during trips to Ireland, and road trips in Colorado stacked there. Love lookin’ and dreamin’ at the photos.
Some of my syrups and relishes have found their way to those shelves. Most marked with contents. Some will be a surprise when opened. Just don’t want to open syrup to go with beans, or relish to go with waffle. Don’t like surprises like that. Might put beans in crock pot tonight, soup tomorrow. With Mexican cornbread and relish. Haven’t had that for a long time.
Writer’s club meeting Saturday. Can’t decide what to take to share with group. Maybe come up with a short story tomorrow. Or maybe use one already written. Depends on mood I’m in. Still have to write my 1000 words on book today. Spent most of day tryin’ to breathe. And sneeze. Love to sneeze. Feels good. Silly, huh?
This makes really good medicine. Might not make it go away, but after a couple belts, who cares? Not real sure at this point, but think it’s made in Kentucky. Could be Tennessee. I prefer Jim Beam anyway, and I know where that’s made. Been there. And Very Old Barton’s. Worked there as temp once. Learned to hate telephones there. Would go home at night and if phone rang, threw plate against wall. Kids learned fast to grab phone on first jingle.
