Made pre-packaged turkey in a box, seemed decent was pricey. Smelled like burnt rubber. Tasted just okay.

Listening to rain, shoes are drying on a heater vent.

Watching a movie on Netflix.

Face is red from drinking a beer.

I have three days off of work.

Surrounded by a mess of things that never get put away because I just don't have enough room, it always comes undone.

Rain + Netflix + beer + days off = sounds good
Depression + Likens murder + overwhelmed by stuff/space = sounds bad.

I count 4 good, 3 bad = balance good

Just made a tumeric horchata type thing as an experiment.

Whole organic milk  heated two mins, microwave put some bakers type vanilla extract into it

This stuff mixed together cold with some cold milk

tumeric, some unmeasured about half a tea spoon or more

too much maple syrup

bit of cinnamon

Dumped the cold stuff into the hot milk

I think it's pretty tasty

Unintelligible recipe writer

Oh but now I just read there are side effects of taking too much turmeric. There is always some side effect to almost everything but drinking water which reminds me I should probably drink some. 

"According to the medical community, about 2,000mg is the maximum amount of standardized turmeric curcumin you should take per day. When cooking with ground turmeric powder, the University of Maryland recommends 1 to 3 grams per day. One gram of ground turmeric powder is about teaspoon."

Then you took just the right amount. That's good stuff!
I did a big read on turmeric sourcing at one point and ordered like 8 jars from The Spice Hunter.
Now I gotta go look up horchata...

The old gentleman I'm helping take care of was married to a Venezuelan woman. I'm wondering if working up some simple Venezuelan recipes would perk up his appetite. One of my goals is to get his weight up for a valve replacement and it's touch and go. I'll ask him today. He's very opinionated so I know he'll tell me!

Hiya Hops,

Word to the wise causes gas, don't eat it before work. I think it helped clear up my skin a bit as I woke up the next morning with good skin, it really is an anti-inflammatory.

Horchata is just a mexican milk drink that has cinnamon and sweetener in it.

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/141828/lolas-horchata/

When I make warm milk with sugar and cinnamon I call it horchata but in reality it's not a perfect match. I only had the real deal once in central America. It tastes different there.


Gosh that sounds like important work Hops. I wonder if it's okay to give him something that is a natural appetite stimulant.

I'm a piglet. I love food. It's one of life's most justifiable luxuries in my opinion. Because food is never really a luxury assuming that our bodies might get sustenance out of it somehow.

No clue what Venezuelan food is like, now I have to google it.

Drinking coffee, slowly becoming activated for the day. Very slowly.

Got my alarm/radio randomly on a news broadcast that comes on when I wake up.

Lots of turmoil, historic demonstrations, quick changes, many people resigning.

I think our whole country needs a horchata.
Except we'd demand that Mexico pay for it.

Oy
and
gevalt

and

I consume the news in shock and amazement. Jaw dropping more day by day and pretty soon I'll have to pry it off my knees.

I haven't processed it at all and what's more worrisome is the government is in chaos and the man is mad. (I am wary of talking politics here but I'm really just SEEING behavior and HEARING craziness + power...a very bad thing no matter what policies one prefers.) The Women's March was a bright light and I hope it all rises up. I haven't felt these currents since the 60s and these feel more cataclysmic.

Hugs

Listening to blues on the radio.

Feeling chicken skin chills.

Painting a few tiny little things rather poorly. Haven't painted anything in years. Kinda feels good to mix up paints.

Should try to get some sleep earlier than normal.

Hiya Hops,

Yeah Thanks :)

Was thinking this morning after watching a video of someone paint about how much time it takes.

This is probably why miniature painting was invented. Not sure. Also probably the space requirements.

So people will stick all their little canvas bits together into a collage.

Was watching a language video and this came up in the mixture somehow. I haven't watched the entirely but I thought I might link it here though maybe it's offensive. I can take it down if it bothers anybody. If you get past the first two minutes it becomes less opinion and more investigation I think.
