If we were having coffee together, this weekend, I would tell you that I have continued to have a wonderful time writing poems, but am still having trouble seeing the computer screen clearly. We have gotten out together for grocery shopping. Al and I also went out to Denny’s Restaurant, yesterday, so that I could have an ice cream sundae. Al had a chicken-fried steak. I don’t think I know what that is, except that it isn’t on my approved menu. I thought that I had seen and talked with other people face to face, but I may just have my days mixed up. Or perhaps I am recalling my stop at the shopping mall to pick up more yogurt starter.
I did reach my goal of getting all of the yogurt jars and lids scrubbed out, washed, rinsed, and then washed and rinsed again, except for the four jars in the refrigerator that still held yogurt.
If we were having coffee, I might admit that I didn’t wake up until after seven o’clock this morning too rescue the yogurt from the incubator, put lids on the jars and settle them in the refrigerator. I tried one from the new batch, and it was good. Left in just long enough, not to long. When I got the new starter home, I read the instructions and realized that these are a different yogurt culture and are supposed to be put in to incubate at 110°F instead of 77°F, and the timing is also different. I hope that I remember that, rather than ruining a batch or two.
I worked on a couple abstract/fanciful photo art pieces, the end of this week. With the rest of my computer time, I mostly read and wrote poetry. I’m enjoying the little three-line mini-poems that I’ve been doing using Mara Eastern’s daily photographs as prompts. Not every photo inspires a poem, but a lot of them do.
If we were having coffee, I am afraid that I would fall asleep, now. I’ve already nodded off several times still holding the lapdesk. Fortunately, not while holding the cup of Oolong tea, which has become tepid.
My task for the coming week is to do serious tossing of clothing that I can no longer wear. (Some of it, I’ve hung onto from the seventies.) Also, I must sort out the books that are of little value and arrange to discard those I’ve since bought in epub or PDF editions.
I hope that you have a wonderful week!
