Good morning, kittens.
Working 18 9-hour days in a row (well, not including weekends) is hard. I am tired and looking forward to my four-day weekend ... I really want to spend the whole time sleeping, but I don't think that will be possible. So far, in addition to the crazy amount of cleaning/ironing/housework I need to do, I also have the following on the agenda: hair appointment, crazy night out clubbing with Eric from Baltimore, wedding, and lunch with a friend. I'd also like to do a little yardwork. We'll see if that all happens.
Work is insane right now. I can not find the motivation to get all the stuff I need to get done done. Thus, it's not getting done. Even though I do like learning the things I'm learning, I am also sometimes overwhelmed with all the that needs to be done. Plus the fact that I have the wrong required qualifications for the job ... and if the people I work for ever figure that out, I'm on the unemployment line again. Somehow, I doubt they will figure that out, but you never know.
Also, I haven't been running. I've been sick. It's been cold. And the Marine Corps Marathon 10k is coming up at the end of the month. Gah!
Anyway, enough complaining ...
Last night, I made soup ... some sort of curried butternut squash soup that I made up. In a large pot, I heated up some oil, added some spices (curry powder, garam masala, cumin, chili powder), and sauteed an onion. Then, I added a whole bunch of veggie broth (maybe 2 cups?). Once that came to a boil, I added a can of diced tomatoes and a can of pureed butternut squash. Next, I added maybe a cup of frozen corn. I let that all simmer for awhile and salt and peppered to taste.
To serve it, I put a dollop of goat cheese in a bowl and ladeled the soup over it.
I also had some yummy kalamata olive bread. Nomz.
At that's about it. So much fun.
Have a great day! *smooches*
