Laughing at myself

I watched some of The Great British Bake-off for the first time today. Anyone who knows me well already knows I'm not a fan of cooking so watching these incredibly complicated concoctions is funny. Tonight, I paused the show and went searching for something for supper... stick a potato in the microwave and eat it with butter, salt and pepper.

Salads in the winter?

I generally have a hard time motivating myself to eat salads when it's cold out. Hot, savory foods just sound better when the snow is blowing. I may have stumbled onto a solution though. My sister recommended a salad kit that she liked and, while that one didn't appeal to me, I tried a couple others. The key is variety; instead of keeping two types of dressing on hand, I now have five and I've been enjoying daily salads.

I have to admit that I am very concerned about the covid variants. If it follows the first wave, South Dakota will get spread later than higher population states, but when it hits it will be dreadful. Expected deliveries of vaccines have been delayed or drastically reduced globally. Each new positive case is a potential for new mutations which could lead to a new variant. This disease is truly insidious.

Funny, just when I could use a friendly cuddle, my cat is in deep-sleep mode on the bed.

Overdue Update


The video and pictures are all from before my world turned white. 

I find I've gotten out of the habit of talking here; my mind has gone blank.

Okay then. After sitting at the keyboard for a few more minutes with nothing forthcoming, I'll leave the pictures as my post for tonight. 

Stay safe and warm.
