Today was just one day in a string of dismal, misty, cold, wet, days. Unfortunately, it’s not the last either – although at the moment the weekend is looking a little brighter. Needless to say, it’s taken it’s toll on me. I’m not used to this much lack of sun. I feel like winter hasn’t ended yet even though it’s been in the 40’s and 50’s. So today I was lethargic. I didn’t end up painting or doing all that much. I did one interesting though, in hopes of brighter days ahead. I took all my shirts and all my jeans and all my jackets and scarves and hats and put them together in ways that I *hope* I’ll remember to wear them this summer and maintain a look of artistic cuteness as opposed to this-shirt-was-at-the-top-of-my-drawer-and-it-matched-ness.
I get tired of how I feel in my clothes – I feel like I should probably put a little more thought into it than I currently do, because I want to look and feel good about myself in what I’m wearing. Hopefully this will help, and I can always do it again if I need to.
The other, slightly less interesting thing I did was make dinner. I got Alex hooked on this version of Shepherds pie I made up a few weeks ago. Mostly because I made an inside gravy/sauce thing.
Which is roughly this:
1/4 c water
1/2 packet beef bullion
1/2 tsp cornstarch
3-4 drops worcester sauce
season to taste (or smell)
(I used a little more water this time, because I made more filling). Basically I just eyeball it to make sure all the meat/peas/corn are coated and then I put in some cornstarch so it’s not all watery.
I also cheat and use Bob Evan’s mashed potatoes that I microwave for 6 minutes and then put on top.
/this has been dinner adventures with Kiery, tune in next time.
