Because I chose not to go to the hash last night, and because I needed two more days of exercise in order to hit my exercise goal for the month, I went for a walk last night. I headed across Moreland because on Sunday I saw some pots that I may have wanted to bring home. In order to pick up the pots on the way home I rerouted and walked a different route. And then I found something better â€” a small plant tunnel! I had to cut my walk short in order to carry the tunnel and pots, but then I went out again in order to close my rings. My second walk produced no goodies, although I considered bringing home the first Christmas tree I have seen kicked to the curb, but it did get me enough exercise to close my exercise ring for the day.
I am not often impressed with my ability to improvise when cooking, but I was last night. I was stir frying some “chicken” nuggets with the pak choi, radishes, carrots, pea pods, and Swiss chard from WLF when I accidentally added way too much salt. ðŸ˜± With not enough time to cook a batch of rice, I recalled having cous cous in the cupboard and made that in about seven minutes. The flavorless cous cous, whose salt I omitted while preparing it, did a wonderful job in cutting back the saltiness of the stir fry. Dinner was saved! ðŸ˜…
Today I want to make a quick run up to Lowes before the rain arrives this week. I shan’t be making there by 6am as it is currently 5:50am and I am still in bed.
The rest of my day will be choring around the ITP Estate and trying to get myself stuck into doing some coding so that I can be employed in 2022. And for reasons you’ll read below today will see me eating leftovers in smaller portions than I have been allowing myself recently.
Hope you are well as we dash headlong to the end of 2021.
Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 188.6 pounds (+1.8 from last week’s weigh-in); rats!
