I don’t know why but I keep trying to write a new post and each time I end up closing the page and just not getting there. I feel sort of bankrupt creatively again and I’m not sure why…other than a bit of stress which can get in the way at times.
My workouts are going well with the kettlebell. I’m over halfway through the 21 day kettlebell challenge. I’ve stopped weighing myself though because the scale really won’t budge and that makes me want to take the damn thing and throw it through a window! *takes deep breath and calms down. I’m eating right, not too much, not too little but I’m adding muscle, muscle, muscle so I am firming up and getting stronger. I’m not one of those girls who minds getting/building muscle. I like it. Granted, I don’t care to be huge but maybe a little ripped yes. 🙂 Even the 12kg (26lb) and the 30lb are getting too light for my swings now. I need to order the 16kg soon. Love it.
This weekend my mom and uncle came down to stay overnight as today they headed down to southern Wisconsin to visit an elderly cousin of ours. I made Quinoa Salad with Black Bean & Mango, Polenta Pie and a pork roast for them. It turned out very nice. Today I’m making Acorn Squash, Pear and Aduki Soup with Sauteed Shiitakes for supper as they will be stopping by on their way back up north. The Acorn Squash, Pear and Aduki Soup with Sauteed Shiitakes has become one of my favorite soups.
Other than that, writing has been non-existent. I’m too scatter-brained right now. I need to get my focus back. *digs around in junk drawer for missing focus. Drat. Not there.
Right now, it is chilly out but I have the patio doors open and I’m listening to the chimes tinkle in the breeze. That calms me as I sit here waiting for my peanut oil to liquefy. Everything else is chopped up and ready to go. My house is filled with the scent of onion, red pepper, garlic, ginger and pear right now. Heavenly. 🙂
If I could share my soup with you I would. I do so in my thoughts. Enjoy! 🙂
