After eating a ton of soup (see below) for dinner before leaving work last night I got home with the mindset of “Do not sit down. Keep moving. You need exercise.” Unfortunately this mindset lasted no more than thirty minutes because of the reality that I had a lot to do, most of which involved sitting down and reading.
My mistake came when I convinced myself that, because it was chilly in the house, that I could lie in bed under the covers and get my work done. Silly Paulie, Trix are for kids!
When I arose at 10:30pm and then promptly went back to sleep, I knew that getting all of my work accomplished would not be in the cards. I woke again around 4:30am and thought about getting up and starting my day early, but it was really cold in the house and I managed to go back to sleep quickly and slept for the next two hours.
The soup is basically comprised of cauliflower, potatoes, onion, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, chicken stock, and heavy cream (you knew that there had to be something unhealthy, right?). It’s finished off with some pan-fried cauliflower and some of the browned butter in which the cauliflower was fried. I added the green onions because I had them and wanted a little extra color for my photo.
Here is the recipe so you can see what it was supposed to look like.
Here’s An Obvious Statement
“I do not have a good grasp of English grammar.” Let’s just say that I was not exactly an attentive student in the English classes during my formative years…
In my attempt to learn the German language I am reading English Grammar for Students of German: The Study Guide for Those Learning German (O&H Study Guides) which compares the German grammar to English grammar. Suffice to say that while I use many of the constructs in the English grammar on a daily basis, I couldn’t properly parse a sentence if my life depended on it.
My goal is to read three chapters a day (there are 48 in total), and when I am done to do this repeatedly until I have an excellent grasp on the grammatical constructs for each language. Note: I will probably screw up my sentences in this blog, so keep reading and correcting. 😉
I’m Making A List And Checking It Twice
I am taking the day off from work on Friday. In the morning I will be doing something for the first time, no, not exercising or going out on a date, you’ll have to wait and see. In the afternoon I’ll be flying up to Raleigh to hang with the Raleigh Royalty over the weekend and then do some college recruiting at North Carolina State next week.
In preparation for this trip I am making a list of things that I need to pack for a near week-long pleasure/business trip. I’ll be flying, the M6’s first road trip has yet to be planned, so I’ll need to pack my luggage by Thursday night. As one can imagine I’ll be checking the (probably inaccurate) weather forecasts to see what clothes I will need to bring. Fun!
