Bed at 10:30 Awake sometime during the night Up at 7:00 4. Everybody left early for Easter. I had to finish painting things, and have a weekend of assembly in front of me. 2 weeks, 5 days. Kittens have started to walk. This is the cutest time.

    WhiteGhost: Deep Thoughts

    It actually was pretty funny, but for some reason those kids parents didn't think so (even if the kids themselves did) Thanks! Still no progress on Swing Flips though. One for each of us Persian sounds super confusing Reading any language will always be easier if you know the vocabulary because in most cases you don't actually read every letter but your eyes will recognize a group of letters and fill in the rest for you, as long as the key letters in in place. Tahts wyh ntavie spekares acn stlil rade tihs. When I was learning Russian, I would write English text using the Cyrillic alphabet. It helped to get familiar with the letter without having to have a very strong vocabulary, with a side benefit of helping me improve my pronunciation and accent by reading it back to myself. Thanks, I really appreciate that. To be fair to you though, if I tried them without having built up to them I would probably end up with multiple concussions as well. Nobody starts out being able to do things. Thank you! I was really surprised by your comment on flexibility because in my mind I am the least flexible person on the planet. Always nice to get positive reinforcement to challenge those negative assumptions we have about ourselves What is there to not understand? It's basically a loaf of bread made out of meat instead of flour. Much tastier but maybe (MAYBE!) not as good for sandwiches Thanks! I really didn't expect I would get them this quickly Yesterday went quite well. Doodling - I did another eye doodle yesterday, but the source photo was not very good, so I struggled with it a bit. I still did it, though Exercising - Went to the park yesterday with the intention of doing a leg workout. When I got there and saw the fun things everyone else was doing, I changed my plan and just did high bar stuff. I worked on all of my high bar skills and the only one I didn't do was Front Giants. The ones I did get were back giants, back uprises, kips, glides, taps, back hip circles, cheat front hips circles (hands behind knees), front mill circles, back mill circles, baby knee giants, and front balances Eating - For lunch yesterday I made myself an egg salad sandwich. Before my mom died, I asked her for her egg salad recipe and this was the first time for me to try it. One bite and I was 6 years old again on a family road trip in our light green Ford Gran Torino station wagon To make it, I needed a scallion so I went down to the vegetable stand to get one. Apparently everyone thought it was super funny to buy just one scallion because not only did the lady at the stand laugh, but I also got 3-4 comments from random strangers on the way back asking about my single scallion. Playing - No playing yesterday

    Talk went good! I'm going to start leasing her September 1st. They were pretty flexible on everything. Grandmas biggest concern was that her granddaughter would still have access to the horse when she was back visiting from school. Which.. Of course I'm okay with that. After the fact, they said if I hadn't leased her they would of had to sell her. so I'm glad they were flexible

    Act VII - Harriet Scouts the Lands Beyond the Fortress

    YUUUMMMMMMMM. I am honestly salivating from imagining the smell of from the dhal and salad. Good thing I already ate my baked salmon with roasted carrots and beets, or I'd be jealous.
  16. So I let the butcher give me a lot of meat. Okay, that came out a bit off-colour. I meant to say, I asked for 2.5 pounds of lamb and got 3.15lb. I don't really know how much meat is one serving. But I suspect this will do at least 6, if not more. Or is a serving less than half a pound? Did I just buy 50 servings worth of lamb??? I mean, I can put away half a pound. But is that excessive? Dietary guidelines always suggest such puny amounts... Anyway, I need to decide what to do with it. I want to practice baking, but in order to limit the caloric damage I persuaded Mr Harriet to stay home and not go to a restaurant as usual. So I'm cooking a three course meal on Saturday. I have huge chunks of lamb "leg" or possibly shoulder... I should have asked for more detail, but I requested something for braising and that's what he suggested. I was thinking a morrocan tagine with sour dried apricots and spicy spices. I have never made a tagine before, but apricots and spice sound good. Also, I want to make something with pastry, but not puff pastry (that's the next level up) and the blackberries seem nice this time of year. So maybe a pie. Today I made a dhal by letting some spices (fresh ginger, fresh garlic, turmeric, garam masala, cumin seeds) bloom in oil, then gently sweating some onions. Then in with the red lentils and tomato puree and stock (I've made dhal before without tomato, and found it really bland) and let it simmer gently for 40. Fried some cumin seeds, then added some to yoghurt, and some with oil to flatbreads which I warmed up. Made a "salad" with grated carrot, shallots, pecans which I warmed in the pan, cranberries, parsley, and a bit of lemon and oil. Dhal, breads, salad, cumin-yoghurt and a wedge of lemon (please excuse the very ugly grey table of our rented temporary HQ):

    Brogo: beats for brainz

    Was it wrong of me to laugh at this? Anyway, when you're ready, a bit later, maybe you can have a food goal that involves adding something in rather than taking it away. So you don't go restriction crazy. Also, "fuck this" is the logical response to a 4am alarm, just saying. Sounds like a hardcore work out. Career crossfit?

    Wednesday Not a great day foodwise. I had my normal PB&J oatmeal for breakfast, then leftover pizza for lunch. After lunch I was really munchie. I bought some carrots to go with the hummus I had in the fridge but that wasn't cutting it so I ended up getting into the trail mix and had way too much. After work was game night and I had a good dinner of an asian salad mix but then our friends that always bring candy of course brought candy and I ate too much of it because it was there. Because of game night there wasn't really time to workout Thursday Still struggling with food a bit, but the trail mix is now gone (for some unknown reason.... ) so maybe tomorrow will be better. Normal breakfast, leftover Thai for lunch, trail mix for snacks. It was nice enough at lunch that I went out for a walk. I had a dentist appointment in the afternoon and was going to go to kickboxing after but the location was awkward and I just wanted to get home and eat real food so I bought ingredients for chili and had that for dinner. After dinner I decided to go out for another run. I say this every time I start running and it lasts about a week, but when I don't try to push myself it doesn't suck! I basically did week 1 of C25k (1 minute run, 90 second walk). I realized halfway through the first interval that I forgot to put on my PF sleeve (why does my arch hurt?!) but after the second interval it didn't really bother me. I'm going to stretch out my foot and calves and hopefully not come out any worse for wear because of it

    RedStone Frees Her Willy

    Thanks guys!! Honestly, since we got the clear to close the tension has really eased off. I think we're just sitting on the waiting game now. The seller has agreed to everything it's just a matter of getting the paperwork done. Good news is that the seller's realtor is back from holiday and seems to be pushing their side of things soooo I guess that's where we're at. (I'm also in a - study about landscape design so I don't do anything stupid the first Summer - kind of place. My pinterest is going ape) And for no reason except I'm glad I found it:

    I've only been here since Aug, and don't make it to Concord except for errands and the occasional show. Depends what you're into. Head north to the White Mountains, hike Mount Washington or one of the others, if you like that sort of thing. Doing fine here. My wife started a six-week program with Kenzai, so I've been doing that with her.

    Tateman: One challenge left before Vegas!

    At the beginning of the year I was inspired and so I bought a poster board size white board sheet. I put trackers for each of my annual goals on it. and I put a bunch of quotes on it. I have it posted in my bathroom next to where I get ready every morning. ..and... I haven't updated most of them in a month. The quotes do help... I need to update it because my goals have totally changed. I'd recommend you just do something simple and post it somewhere you'll see it every day, multiple times a day. Then evaluate it after a challenge and see if it works. I'm personally finding my digital tracker and reminders on my phone work better for me and my life right now.
