    7am:
    Researching bike componentry since like midnight...worth it.
    Ride day, but heavy intermittent rain all morn.
    Stew making day anyways...YAY !
    Body says it's hungry, time for a smoothie.

    Though I've bookmarked items, also researched SS fry pans and stock pots to see if I missed any good products.

    Deciding on the Ikea's I found previously, with $20 delivery to Tassie, but found a more suited fry pan for $20 with lid, instead of the $40 one without lid.
    Ikea website and me tablet are having serious relationship problems, Ikea's search function is allvarligt knullad upp.

    Took a while but ending up with a better pan at half the price.

    It's Greek to me.

    I've just finished dinner and we're packing for a week overseas, so there's some stress.

    Also, my dog is really rubbing it in that I'm not the "fun parent" -sighs-

    It's Swedish - or near it. (My Swedish is awful. I remembered this should be "dykade med katten" but net dictionary said otherwise and I did what it said.)

    X17: All f:d up.
    AA: It's not so formal here in rural areas said a girl, pissed to the floor and dried with a cat.

    Trying to find out if women are more likely to survive a gunshot to the chest on account of breast tissue. Instead, I discovered that they appear to be more likely to survive gunshot wounds to the head. They reckon progesterone is the reason.
    On the flip side, it seems men are more likely to die from serious trauma than women*.

    Allvarligt uppknullad!

    Never forget that Swedes puts words together as of they're parts of a Billy bookcase!

    Other words to describe it might be:

    - Skitjobbig!
    - Vem fan skapade sidjäveln?
    - Ur funktion.

    Just so you folks know and don't think I'm multilingual, I just use Google Translate for any non-english statements I may make.

    And has GT got it right..."It's not enough here in the country, said the girl and pissed on the floor and dried the cat!"?
    If so...wtf? ˜laughter˜..and context please, if there is any.

    Getting better at making stew.
    Stew meat for 3 hrs.

    Could do this in an hour, but decided to go for a ride in the meantime, as more than 1hr is no prob for meat. Discovered in shed, rear had a flat, had to find tiny sliver of metal in the tyre, installed new Continental tube I bought and had a 2.5 hr ride, as the heavy rain quickly went east in one swoop by 9am, with no wind on the ground and opened up a completely clear sky.

    Came home, then add tatters and carrots. Stew for 30 mins.
    Then add beans. Stew for 30 mins.
    Then add soggy ex-frozen various veges and onion. Stew for 1hr.
    Adding far less water than usual, thus cooking time is greatly reduced.

    Having first batch for breakie right now, all veges chunky and solid yet with soft consistency. Will try less stew time next time to see if I can reduce cook time even more.

    ˜blows on spoon˜ oh oh hot hot, but oh so tasty.

    'Tis a good thing you're going on 'olidays then, to destress.
    But then won't you stress when it's time to repack to go home?
    Unless it was a shitty 'oliday, then packing up would be a pleasurable experience.

    Wait...unless you're stressing about the dinner you just finished.
    I don't know you that well so it's unwise to assume things.

    Supposed to read through this wip, jot some notes to fix, but I don't feel like it. Not sure if its the energy in my house, but when I'm in here, my enthusiasm for the creative is killed. Can't produce anything. I often wonder if it is the repressed feelings of my siblings that is lingering in the atmosphere and I'm feeling their general distaste, that they think they are hiding... Meh.

    I know when I go to the library, I can bust down. Just the other day I banged out close to 10k words in one sitting. But at this house, it's like I have to push myself to get anything done. Only time I can really focus is when everyone is gone.

    It's spilled over into every creative realm. On an instinctual level, I just think my family don't really believe in any of my 'talents' any longer, or... maybe they never did, and now I'm beginning to realize it. meh. As long as I got that library I'm good.

    Sitting up after 1 am googling ways to stop nighttime RLS.

    It's always been a problem for me, but never when I try to sleep, going to the gym is giving me twitchy arms and legs hours later.

    Feeling 95% better from the cold while the doc has given me the green light for....uh...wooden mornings. :p

    Gonna go eat some curry chicken at Curry in a hurry. Aka the spot you can find me in most weeks, since I really like Indian food.

    Have a good day, folks. :superagree:

    4am. Starving. Just made a smoothie.
    Went to bed around 5pm, already dark.
    Been editing since midnight.
    4 chapters done.
    Weather looks clear. No wind like the crazy shit yesterday, with rain.
    Ride day.
    Forgot to stock up on Kiwi fruit and Avos. Freeze 'em in bulk.
    Tossing up whether to take backpack on bike or head back to village in ute after ride.
    Had coffees yesterday so leaning towards backpack.
    If weather is warm will took at installing drivetrain upgrades to start testing.

    Ripping the rest of my cds onto my dino-top (I know, I'm a millenia behind everyone else with techy things :p), and doing the Craft Challenge that I have set myself. It entails going through my 8 drawer set, and a couple of tins of stuff. It is a large undertaking, but I am already making waves into it. :)

    will allow. :p
