I cooked a big pot of turnip greens and black eyed peas to usher in the New Years. It is a tradition in the South and it is said you will get $1000 dollars for every heaping serving of black eyed peas you eat. I made sure to put ample vinegary hot sauce in my turnip greens getting them “just right.” I also cooked a pork loin and baked some sweet potatoes. It made for a wonderful New Year’s feast. I am feeling well satiated at the moment and will eat again in a few hours for supper.
I apologize for the lack of blogging lately. I just haven’t felt well and it is hard for me to write when I get to feeling that way. I worry my mental illness will color what I write. I have had a ton of delusions and auditory hallucinations. I have been doubling up on my anti-psychotic medications and it seems to be helping. I would have never been able to cook like I did today, yesterday.
My father’s best friend, Charlie, came and spent some time with me today. We drove up to Kroger to buy some Cokes that were on sale and then came home to put up plastic sheeting upon my windows in this apartment. My windows are terribly drafty and it has caused my heating costs to be sky high lately. Hopefully, I and Charlie’s endeavors today will bring down those costs. I leave you with a picture of Charlie cursing and busily putting up that sheeting. Good day.
