Crawling out from under my rock.
Sunday, November 08, 2009
Well...the past few days have had me in cave mode. I've been under the rocks and snoozing with my white cat. Today I crawled out, did laundry, and am going shopping for food and other house stuff.
I have been in contact with another old friend that I haven't talked to since the late 80's. I met him when he was a Mormon missionary in this area and we became good friends. Then life intervened, missionaries return home to where they are from and we kinda lose touch. So I did what I do...looked him up on line and we are back in touch again. It is awesome to find old friends and rekindle friendships. I guess it is a blessing that I have time to do that now.
I seem to be alternating between funk mode and alive mode. The good thing about both is that I am getting a slew of reading done.
I canceled my date for this weekend. After a few e-mails, I got totally creeped out and listened to that. I don't want to end up on the 6 o'clock news for the wrong reasons. Aside from that, I have had a few nice e-mails from a few dating sites and am enjoying the process. One potential date is a chef...can you see how that could work? He loves to cook....I love to eat. A match made in heaven! And so far, nobody has run screaming for the hills when they find out I am vegan.
My neighbors from across the street came over Thursday night for supper. I made my signature Vegan stew with cornbread. It turned out awesome. I also made a gluten free, vegan chocolate cake with vanilla icing, The cake was tasty....but a funny thing happened. It was fine when it came from the oven. The toothpick test showed it was done. I let it cool and put it on a plate and frosted it. Later, when we went to cut the cake, the frosting made it gooey. I should have made this cake for halloween with blood red frosting as it would have made an excellent, gooey, frosting runny, disturbing, halloween kind of thing. We all laughed about it.
Have you ever wanted to do something, start doing it, then are almost immediately bored with he whole thing? I am an avid World of Warcraft player. I love the game, my friends there, the quests and story arcs. But lately, as soon as I sign on I want to be off. Nothing holds my interest. I don't feel like interacting or questing. I miss that. I'd like to have that back. I talked friends back to the game who had left and now, since mom died, I am the one who has no desire to be online except for the specialty quests. The Halloween stuff is always fun and Great Father Winter is coming up with presents under the tree for all and cool Yule type quests to do. But now, since I am in between the special time of year events, I have no desire. Ugh!
Well....that is my news. I am out from under the rocks for now and enjoying the sunshine. The rocks may call again later. If so...that is OK. I have more reading to do.
