Today is Saturday, and since it's supposed to shower all day and then rain like hell tonight, I'd planned a few indoor things to keep me busy. One was to finish processing the Anaheim chilies- yesterday I blistered them and piled them in a bowl and covered them. Then I cooled them and refrigerated them to finish today, which was going to be peel, place in greased muffin tins, and freeze. The other thing I'd hoped to work on today was getting back to work on the hutch. It's supposed to rain until Wednesday, and that would give me a bunch of days to make some serious headway with that project.
But between my root canal yesterday (my sixth- for Heaven's sake, don't let your kids chew ice!) and the fact that I am very definitely fighting a sore throat and tickling left ear, I feel like crap and I'm taking it easy today. I'm also powering down the Umcka, in which I wholeheartedly believe for fighting colds and flu. My chiropractor in Portland recommended it, and it's the bomb for fighting bugs. I have a fire going in the stove, and am snug in what passes for jammies these days, and once I get the clean laundry that's strewn all over the couch folded and put away, I'm kicking back and either reading or watching a movie. Bleh.
Steve on the other hand, is being a good doobie and brewing up an alt-style beer today. We got up early this morning and headed into Portland for breakfast at Pine State Biscuits (WARNING: food porn)(we both had the Reggie and several cups of coffee- they serve Stumptown) and then off to F. H. Steinbart for brew supplies. Steinbart is another Mecca in Portland, as is Pine State. Actually, Portland has a lot of Meccas.
So now it's time to go check on the fire, fold laundry, and then curl up on the couch.
