… to the bleakness of this day.
Rain in January is an abomination and only serves to worsen my mood of late. I have been guilty of giving in to the time suck that is the internet and getting further behind in everything real in life. My head is so fuzzy with to-dos and oh-ahs my mind is ready to just turn off. I think I am going to have to ground myself from the internet. Ya know, read a few extra books to these guys…
Before I dimly stumble away from my computer (so cold, alone, and confused without you), how about a little over-share for the road. We have been eating quite a bit of fermented food recently (black pepper tempeh; kimchi; potatoes, sausage, and kraut; fermented pickles), and my belly has been a bubblin’. It has been a very tasty, very stinky week.
A vendor at our local farmer’s market sells vegan kimchi and fermented pickles. They are so delicious. I bought some (totes out of season) cukes so I could make a batch of fridge pickles because mama cannot afford farmer’s market pickles on the regs. Would you believe I hated pickles up to a few years ago. If my picky-eating, ten-year-old self could see me now… Oh, she would NOT approve.
