CRAPPY Stuff
I spent my entire day waiting for a package to arrive that never did, despite the website saying that TODAY is the delivery day. The status shows IN TRANSIT still. The USPS website sucks so bad compared to UPS.

=======================

HAPPY STUFF
On the plus side, I spent my entire day making homemade chicken soup from the carcass of an entire chicken! We roasted the chicken for a dinner over the weekend then with the leftover meat from roasting it we got two lunches out of it. Then today I boiled the carcass to create broth and removed all the meat and then added stuff to it and made soup! And we had dinner plus we have one huge container in the fridge for lunches an one huge container in the freezer for the future! Victory!!!!!

=======================

SPIRITUAL STUFF
For the mentor group I am in (the study group that is similar to a year-and-a-day program) every Tuesday we are to write 3 path-related things that we are grateful for. It is called GratiTuesday. It is tougher than I thought it would be.
Oh, and ancestor veneration. I have the picture. I have the jewelry, the rosary, the dresser items. What am I waiting for?

=======================

O, and that wind, yo. It has been blowing like crazy all day, bringing rain with it sporadically. I have heard branches hit the side of the house multiple times just since I have been up here in the rec room. The sound of fire trucks keening in the distance is almost constant and makes me realize how fleeting life can be. Hug your loved ones.

I woke this morning with passionate ideas about things I wanted to do, notebooks I want to start, a plan of attack for a Meditation Journal, a Dream Journal, a Shifting Journal, a Journeying Journal, a Magick Workings Ideas/Journal... and all those plans slowly faded away when I realized that my evening was already planned for me.

We had invited a young couple that we know over for dinner and I needed to come up with a plan for what to cook. I decided on White Chicken Chili and cornbread because I had 90% of the ingredients and I haven't made that in ages. The chili recipe seems easy but there are many steps to it and the longer you let the ingredients simmer together the better it tastes. And then I had to do the cornbread from scratch, too. So... I basically spent my entire afternoon inn the kitchen. We had a totally yummy dinner but my inspiration for new directions of my passions had to be put on hold.

Then after dinner our friends didn't leave until after 8pm and by that time hubby and I just wanted to relax and unwind.

My ideas for notebooks is still there... it is just faded in the stark light of life and commitments.

Here is hoping that my creativity will come rushing forth tomorrow morning.

Oh. And tomorrow I turn 51 years old. Yeah. You heard me.
Not sure what I will do tomorrow... I want to fill the gas tank and take off.
Somehow I do not think that will be happening.

Couldn't think of a thing to blog about today, but... now I have a topic!

I DO NOT LIKE COOKING!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can do it... and I do it on a fairly regular basis just because my husband and I need to eat healthier and stop blowing money on eating out.

However, I do not enjoy it and I do NOT have a knack for it. I would much rather clean for my supper than cook it.

Ugh.

I agreed (like a dumbass) to make 6 quiches for a fundraiser tomorrow. There is fucking egg on my kitchen floor, in my oven, on my counters... I am in hell right now.

Yeah.... really despise cooking.

UPDATE, 3:04pm
The 6 broccoli-cheddar quiches are done. The last two are pretty crispy on top. My oven is a disgusting mess. So are my floors and counters. My house smells like smoke.
So. Not. Worth it.
