Halloween Cat

Ups and downs

Last week I meant to update, but I got all depressed and then the links I wanted to post weren't ready yet, and so I just kept putting it off and putting it off until, well, hey, what do you know, it's this week. And now suddenly this week is over. Fortunately, the depression managed to take off, but it was, I believe, exacerbated by the real fear that our next president will be Bill Frist. I'm going to try not to think about THAT until 2007.

I hope I can sleep a little later tomorrow morning, although I'm not sure if my cat will allow me. He was most insistent I wake up this morning. And good thing, too, really. It got the hedges trimmed.

I am a callus seedling-murderer. rahirah says so.

The Things I Did Today

I did not sleep as much as I wanted to. Cuervo the Mighty kept pushing me off the pillow in his desire to sleep on my head, and cats are really HOT. So I was hot and I was too tired to move him, because he will not be budged and he's heavy. Besides, he always comes right back. And then I had a headache. Around six or so, I got up and took Advil, then resigned myself to trying to sleep with a cat on my head. I managed to make it to around 9:30, but it wasn't really restful sleep.

So I got up. I did not get the house clean, but I DID get the kitchen presentable, then I squeezed all the limes that have been sitting in the fruit drawer and made lime curd that has actually CURDED. I made the pistachio-chocolate macaroons to use up the egg whites, and then used the last of the lime juice in a nice lime sorbet, using my new ice cream maker for the second time (on Friday I made a chocolate-chocolate chip ice cream which is so rich it's really more like frozen custard). I also made a very good chicken salad, with chunks of apples and walnuts. Quite tasty.

We played some more Baldur's Gate.

I've written about a page.

I'm watching part 4 of "Into the West." It's not groundbreaking television, but I like it okay. Christian Kane is in tonight's episode.
