Tis the Weekend, Long


05/24/2013 by syrbal-labrys


A three day weekend begins this evening. I still can’t feel the fingers of my left hand about 50% of the time after overworking for the last 2 1/2 weeks. But I am not laboring now; I am buying garden plants tonight and going to a good-bye party. I am having guests tomorrow and making portobello ‘burgers’. I am being lazy and trying to look away from the news.

And the universe approves. See that picture? That is a gold star on the dried blueberry in my granola! And yes, I know, the dried fruit spent time in a jar that held Yule cookies adorned with wee edible gold stars. But for five months, nary a star appeared until today. So I will happily maintain my plan is the right one. (And will keep my mind away from the meanings of other sorts of gold stars.) Memorial Day is kept in strict mind here; but I still need to rest up and look for some light in the dark here.

See ya’ll Tuesday unless I have something delightful and delicious to share!

    Having made a delicious nettle/spinach “spanakopita“, nettles are on my mind (gonna harvest some more this afternoon)- the “sting” has been used for joint relief for a long time, maybe an urtication would give you some relief!

      I do need to harvest nettles as we have not made beer, but I doubt the stinging would help since the pain is from old neuropathy issues.
