The Performance Task presentation has been delivered. I think it went well, and there are four yet to come after me. As with most jobs, it will come down to who has the skills needed for the vision of the director. Good luck to us all. Every once in a while, I bring some supplies… Continue reading Dinner for My Mom
This evening has been a bit of a whirlwind. I’m going to visit my mom, other family members, and a friend this weekend. Since I rarely go empty handed, I’ve been rushing around trying to remember everything I want to take to her. I’ll also be stopping at Costco, so I had to remember to… Continue reading Performance Task 4th and Final Day
Finally, we have a new faucet for the kitchen sink. The old one was very low, had a separate sprayer (which stuck a lot, meaning we got wet when least expecting it), and just didn’t work for me in the way I needed it to do. The new one is higher up so I can… Continue reading Performance Task Day 3
Today I learned one should not use canola oil as a vegetable oil substitute in making brownies. It was an epic fail. The brownies would not cook through, would not hold together, and were, well, a mess. I had to throw most of the batch away and start over. It was a little lesson though.… Continue reading Performance Task Day 2
This week may have shorter than usual posts. I have a job interview on Friday morning, which should I be chosen, would be a promotion. I’m up against some fantastically talented colleagues, whom I wish the best of luck, as we all would bring different strengths and skill sets to the role. This evening, I… Continue reading Performance Task
We didn’t watch RuPaul’s Drag Race finale on Friday. Then it didn’t load on the AppleTV VH1 app yesterday. So, today is the day. It has been a very interesting season in light of Covid precautions. This has been one of the best seasons though in terms of diversity and a nod to Social Justice.… Continue reading Finale Time
The dog woke me up before 6:00 this morning needing to go out. It was fine as I had already been awake for a while. I went to sleep thinking about an interview I have on Friday and the performance task all applicants have been asked to complete. This task was also what was on… Continue reading Meal Planning
When everything started shutting down last year, and we learned how hard hit restaurants and their workers were from the pandemic, we decided to continue to support those businesses as best we could. Two evenings each week, for the last 14-months, we’ve ordered takeout. On occasion, for a date night, we’d go through the drive-thru,… Continue reading We Ate Out!
Over the years, I’ve heard people and the media talking about a Race War. It has popped up quite a bit over the past week, and especially on the day of the verdict in the murder of George Floyd trial. There were people who were (are) worried about a Race War starting, and others who… Continue reading 400 and Counting
This book is my new favorite canning and preserving cookbook. It has many of the tried and true recipes, and a whole lot of new ones. The introduction speaks to coming into the new realm of taste and flavor of the current day. It lives up to the expectation. At the start of each section,… Continue reading Canning and Preserving, Oh My!
