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.

Huzzah for curdy curd! Sounds as if you had a very culinary day. My day was an utter waste: I was dead asleep for most of it. I'm going to hit the hay early tonight in the hope of sating the insatiable sleep beast so I can get the house clean tomorrow.

Yep, and all due to limes!

Good luck with that sleep thing. I've been having troubles with it, myself (although mine are pale, puny things compared to yours).
