... not the writing or blogging I had planned.
I 'fell back' as planned, awoke at a reasonable time, and had a variation on huevos rancheros for breakfast (lentils instead of beans). And some pumpkin pudding to lighten the mood.

This evening Ms. S. works, as usual; she left before the game was over in N.O., which means she luckily missed any of the post-game insanity that has surely started up in this city. The Tide survivied -- alas -- a close one against LSU. At his h... Read more
Fridays should be brief. Short and sweet. They're too short as it is: once the weekend arrives you're counting down the minutes until it is over and you have to return to the so-called 'real world.'

It's now November. We are registered to vote. The autumn sun is a delight. The water heater still drips.
1. Returning to some fitness material after a couple months off. Basically a warm-up and then bodyweight circuit ... that was this m... Read more
Just a breeze today. And just a breeze of a blog.
Where to begin? The 'girls' ... go me up around 4am. And then off and on until nearly 5:30, when they get fed. Really, it was A, not E. Scratch scratch at the bed post. Jump on the bed and c... Read more

To keep things brief ...
 October is almost over. I love both lists and plans. At some point I'll personally and privately have to (re)evaluate October, but now I'm looking forward to November. I love "All Hallows' Eve," "All Saints' Day... Read more
For some reason my phone thought that today was the beginning of daylight saving time and reset itself to an hour earlier; it's off by a week. Luckily I was not fooled.
About twice a year our Sunday writing group does not the regula... Read more
Hey, there were a couple college football upsets this weekend ... not that it mattered to me and Ms. S.
It's homecoming around here, so I hear. We wisely stayed inside this Saturday afternoon and since we're approaching Halloween we... Read more
No Roman numerals today, just little lists, some notes and reminders, and a day recapped before Ms. S. and I go shopping.
Why don't we, Ms. S. wondered aloud around 7:30am, get jobs teaching English in China or elsewhere?
Why not, inde... Read more
... the 150 calorie bun, the worst smell in the world, and thoughts on disgust.
When Ms. S. and I want real 'burgers' from whatever veggie burger is in the freezer, I make up actual hamburger buns using a tried and true 5:3 (by weig... Read more
Pudding, puddles, playwrights, and non-pilsners.
To use up an open can of pumpkin I tossed the rest of the puree in with some almond milk, sugar, cornstarch, spices, and vanilla. It makes 4 half-cup servings.
I had it al made u... Read more
A new coffee, contemplating 'grains', and needing to tidy up. As for the last: I needed a postage stamp, which necessitated combing through a box of miscellany, leading Ms. S., whose box it was, to realize and proclaim that the office is in need... Read more
10:45; Ms. S. leaves for work. It's a weird schedule we keep. A beautiful day, though, reviewed in reverse.
Nutrition, Fitness, Motivation, Wellness ... those "healthy lifestyle" topics. I work actively and successfully on the first... Read more
For some reason I am thinking of Zelazny. Tonight Ms. S. and I should finish the 'Alien' movies.
Earlier in the week I opened a can of pumpkin for some purpose.
I'm sure it will come back to me.
Now it sits in the refr... Read more
