Two or Three Orzo
It is Wednesday, right?
This not-working thing messes with my internal clock. I don't know when to be happy because it's a Friday, already!
Okay, I'm being wholly sarcastic. Obviously I have to go back to work and want to do so asap. But it's pure luxury to nstay home for a few days. Of course I'm doing stuff around the house and working on websites for our customers, but otherwise I'm being a lazy bum and enjoying it entirely too much.
I received this prestigious award tonight and have to display it:
Isn't it purdy? I got it from Poolie herself, bless her little pie-rat soul.
Dang... I just realized I need to contact the photographer and let her know we're going to have to re-schedule the wedding. She may be happy to postpone it. In a way I am, too. I would love a Christmas wedding, but I know for sure neither of my girls would've been able to come the weekend before Christmas and doubtful Youngest Son would, either.
This very abbreviated entry comes to you courtesy of my making dinner and needing to put some teensy noodles, called orzo, into our soup. This stuff looks like grains of rice uncooked. I imagine it will be a little fatter once cooked, but probably still look like fat grains of rice. I think I am also going to put some veggies into this mulligan's stew of mine. I started with leek soup base, threw in some cubed pork from a roast and so on. Sorry Poola and Boxx, but I'm not a vegetarian. I like meat with my veggies. In fact, I plan to return to Atkins-land as soon as I can. I feel dramatically better when I'm on that diet, meat and all.
And on that note, I'd better sign off and finish fixing dinner.
Before - After
In the grander scheme of things, no soul can truly be replaced. Each one of us has a place in the universal tapestry. We each contribute our own color and texture. When one thread is snipped too soon, it distorts all the threads around it. Other lives can unravel and tear. If the wrong thread is ripped away, the whole fabric of life becomes dangerously fragile.
