I wanted some comfort food badly today and...shhhh...don't tell anyone, but Kraft mac and cheese in the blue box were BOGO at Publix last week and I bought a box and got my free one and they are living in my cabinet right now for comfort food emergencies but I decided that instead I'd make some fried rice with one of the Chinese cabbages in the garden and some of the carrots too. They are all orange this year because when I bought my seeds they were out of the mixed colors and I miss those deep reds and purples of the carrots of years past. But they are good carrots and pretty in their own orange way. And isn't that Bok Choy just worthy of being painted?
It's just been so gray and chilly here today. I have been wishing hard for cooler weather again and here it is so I cannot and will not complain. It's also drizzled on and off and so it's that wet cold that gets into your bones. I just wish I could store some of it in my bones for when the temperatures rise again. Which they will soon enough.
The dogs made a reappearance today but in a lucky twist, Mr. Moon was in the yard and got to his pellet gun. He didn't hit a dog with any pellets but it scared the living daylights out of them. We think that those dogs may live at Mango's house and I need to find out. That's the direction they run in when they're in retreat. He said that one was a bulldog mix and one a white German shepherd. Neither one of those is a dog you want running loose in your neighborhood. Especially if they're hungry.
So I've not felt motivated to do much today besides make fried rice which wasn't very good fried rice but it did have vegetables in it. And if we don't end up eating it all, the chickens sure will be happy.
Maurice and I sat on the couch for awhile this afternoon and watched some TV. This blog is turning into a Maurice photo blog, isn't it? I'm sorry but she's just been very attentive lately.
Look at that scarred up nose.
Whatever. The world always needs more potholders.
Whatever gets us through the night.
