I get grumpy when I'm hungry

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

...weird but true.

And today I was a bit hungry throughout the day. I didn't fall back in the nibbling-or-constantly-snackin
g trap, thankfully. I did have a random nut or two, but overall I resisted the urge to munch and kept myself busy in the garden. So looking forward seeing what i will be able to harvest this year... even though I've just only planted the seeds: lots of beans, peas and lettuce, tomatoes, carrots and parsnips, also some zucchini, eggplants and watermelon. Rocket salad grows almost like a weed, it invades everything. And I reckon I'll soon be able to finally harvest my garlic. So excited about that. I love seeing everything growing green and lush again. And hate slugs and snails more then ever. Now that we have a dog I don't wanna put out slug pellets anymore, dog puke is ain't no nice.

So working in the garden helped me avoid the afternoon nibbles, but it made me late for dinner, and I'm the cook, so that was a little problem. By the time I finally put a spoonful of spicy butter chicken in my mouth (ok, it was only left over from yesterday, but the kids aren't big fans of indian food so I had to magic up something quick for them)I was the grumpiest grump-bag imaginable... it even took me a while to de-grump, which normally happens instantly as soon as I'm fed. Maybe it's the sugar withdrawal. i did have 2 pieces of coconut chocolate I made myself as well as a maple syrup hot chocolate, which is actually really nice I discovered.

So, now I'm off to bed.
