Trying hard to reverse yesterday’s negative attitude. Yes, there are still many problems with my body, but I am looking forward to spending my night at home literally putting my house in order.

Holy Over Sleeping, Batman. I was awake early, but in this cold weather snuggled back in “bed” and have just reawakened.

Also, over the Weekend in addition to my windshield issue I had a irritation on my left eyelid. It has mostly subsided but I am fearing the formation of another chalazion will occur.

Arriving to what should have been the fun culmination to a cold, but enjoyable camping weekend, bad luck managed to find me again. While driving at at very low rate of speed in the gravel parking lot of the horse park in Conyers a rock appeared from nowhere, struck the M6’s windshield, and cracked it. There was not another car moving in the parking lot, and I was a good distance from the road, so I am still dumbstruck how this could have happened to me. The crack is a good ten inches long, so the windshield is not repairable and will have to be replaced.

Oh. Fucking. Joy. 🤬

Getting ready for a (c)old weekend of camping. Hoping for a huge fire, and many beers.

Hey, I get to add a recipe to the Win column! Last night I made my take on this Hot and Spicy Peanut Butter Udon Noodles, in which I substituted a tablespoon of miso paste for one of the tablespoons of peanut butter, and added some mini bell peppers and a ton of spinach. I thought it was rather delicious.

It’ll be another busy day as I go see “Safety Net” tonight at Theatrical Outfit, before going home to get everything thing ready for this weekend’s camping trip.

I keep having to remind myself that the road to success is paved with failures. At the rate I am going I will be ready to lay down a super highway soon…

Last night I couldn’t deal with being around people so I skipped German class and went home, stopping briefly at Aldi. The plan became “go home, and attempt the bbq cauliflower bites recipe that I saw the other day”. Unfortunately, imho, the batter produced was far too thick and thus the cauliflower never crisped in the oven. The final product was tasty and sweet, but bore no resemblance to my desired outcome. I would have eaten the leftovers for lunch, had I not taken the wrong container of leftovers from the refrigerator this morning. 🤦🏻‍♂️

I did have a success yesterday though, I once again can log into Flickr. So, there goes my excuse of not posting photos here. At least I have that going for me now.

Remember, remember the Fifth of November; mostly because it’s the anniversary of Glory Mole’s first haring… 😂

Today I intended to compare and contrast the vegetarian Toad in the Hole that I made last night to the carnivorous one I made nearly thirteen years ago. However, given that I failed to use the same recipe, save the sausages of course, and, I was too embarrassed by the appearance of the one I created last night, no comparison will be made. Both versions have their merits, and I will continue to work on a vegetarian variety.

I have also started to investigate how to create my own vegetarian sausages. Though, I have to admit that some of the commercially-available sausages are pretty damn good.

And finally, I made a powerfully-flavorable red wine reduction sauce with mushrooms that would be suitable to cover any sort of steak or fake steak.

If remove the fact that all of my sports teams did not win this weekend, including games in which they were supposedly the “better” team, it was a fun weekend.

I did some drinking with old buds on Friday, walked to and around Chomp and Stomp on Saturday, and did a weird hash called “SOB” yesterday (my first time in about eighteen years).

Oh wow, it’s November! I had much fun hanging out at Bonnie’s last night, taking turns handing out candy to the urchins that wandered her street. Being dressed in an Olaf costume on a cold Halloween night worked out quite well. Yes, there is a photo of me wearing it and I have uploaded it to Flickr via their app. No, I have not figured out how to log into Flickr’s website since ownership changed hands, and I should since I just re-upped my Flickr “Pro” account.

Last night was the Atlantaville Horror… Watching the United game took me from confident in the first ten minutes to disbelief after 95 minutes. What an unexpected, and unfortunate letdown. Congratulations to Toronto, they did what they needed to do to win the game.
