You know you are getting old when everything
either dries up or leaks.
OMG, does that mean that tomorrow is #2500??? Better see if Sandy is registered at Amazon for something special!
Yeah Squirrel, you do that. Right now Sandy has the gift of a stomach flu that put her in bed sleeping most of yesterday. So, no Farmers Market, no preparing for Hurricane Matthew, no cleaning the studio, nada. My whole life was turned upside down and boy was I pissed. I had TY go buy me a giant chicken that I was able to stick in a pot and poach most of the afternoon- OK, I forgot it and it was so 'done' that I couldn't pick it up out of the pot. But it really it the spot with a few matzoh balls and every vegetable I had left in the refrigerator. That was all the standing up I could do, but after not eating a thing for 24 hours it was so delicious I almost cried. Then I went back to bed at 7:30 and logged in another 12 hours.
Today I'm better, my pants are falling off and I am rehydrating as my goal for the day. Maybe I will go to the studio later and mess around some more with the 3 books. We'll see.
Friday, before I got sick, I made some cornbread from an old James Beard recipe I know by heart by now- it's the cornbread I use for my turkey stuffing and it contains actual corn, chopped chilis (uses up the batch of fresh Hatch Chiles I scored last fall- roasted and froze), lots of butter and eggs. Wonderful recipe- I make it on sheet pans, cut in cubes and then let it try on the counter a couple of days before making stuffing. But I made it in the muffin tin so I can do a little portion control around here. In my baking frenzy I also made a loaf of English Muffin bread, a recipe of my mom's from the 60's I think. Talk about dense- I had forgotten, but it makes the best toast ever. And TY is going through it like it's made of air.
PERHAPS THESE THINGs MIGHT HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH MY STOMACH DISTRESS? OF COURSE NOT!!!
the ART PART:
Last post I stuck in some three-rabbit motifs and I have some more today. It's amazing to me how a motif can transfer itself from one country to another over ages and still be a variation of some ancient idea. The authors really get into these rabbits and find them all over the world, all from different materials, but all with the three ears joining them together. The best interpretation is, for me, the circle of life and the interconnectedness of us all.
So, today, if I can't get my ass off the chair again, I guess I will be gearing up for my 2500th post. Will have to be something out of the ordinary, don't you think?
