It's been hot the last few days. Nice. But my skin feels dry and sort of crispy. Yes, I used sunscreen. Lunch has been delayed till one or two o'clock and by then I feel drained and exhausted. While I enjoy the breakfast ease of a microwaved bowl of oatmeal with a heaping spoon of ground flax; the bowl isn't doing the "stay full till two" job as well as the eggs.
Yesterday I worked in the garden all day. So, four straight days at work, then a full day in my own garden (weeding, digging, planting), and then a full day at work. I am exhausted. tomorrow, I have shirts to iron, the dog to walk and more garden work. I really do want my peas to be planted. I even bought plants for a hanging basket for my own porch. Purple ivy geraniums. Yummy.
Because we have gone out to dinner two nights in a row, I am cooking dinner tonight. Well, I am cooking meat. I have no idea what the starch or vegetable will be. I seem to only have meat in the freezer. Oh, honestly, I have pork, rhubarb, some ground beef, coffee beans and a bunch of bagels. Not the basis of a good household. I am sure there is a delightful recipe on the internet for pork with rhubarb sauce but I live with a guy who wouldn't eat it.
The pork I am making will be Carnitas some time tonight. Simmered in water and then crisped in it's own fat after all the water has evaporated. I have a few tortillas, some red onion and thin sliced cabbage. It sounds okay to me.
