[Current Mood |down]
[Current Music |(Random Playlist)]

Up very late today -- well after noon -- and I found myself feeling lethargic and somewhat depressed for much of the day. The last few days were actually pretty good ones for me energy-wise, but it's a part of my life that depression is never very far away and strikes seemingly at random. Hopefully, I'll feel a bit better tomorrow. I'll be working at the book store, which usually puts me in a more stable mood.

In any case, I spent most of the early afternoon wasting time online, although I did take a break to wash some dishes. Later in the afternoon, queenmomcat put our heads together to do meal planning and then went grocery shopping together. When we got back from that, I settled in for some more computer time, but I was feeling sleepy and unfocused, so I went back to bed for a short nap.

Three hours later, I got up again, just in time to help queenmomcat make a winter vegetable soup for dinner. Basically, this involved tossing some chopped squash, carrots, onions, beans, macaroni, and fried slices of kielbasa into a pot with some stock and waiting until it could be called soup. It came out okay, although it was pretty bland. If we make it again, we'll need to add some spices. (Which I could probably say about most of the recipes we try these days.) And now we're winding down to a late bedtime. Today was not great, but I've been through worse. Tomorrow should be better.

Yeah, that's rather my thought about most of the recipes from that particular author's cookbooks. But I won't let that stop me from using the cookbooks...
