I messed up someone’s order. I sent them the right item but the wrong color. This sucks. Now there is no way they will get their item in time. This upsets me. I offer to remake the item in the correct color, but there’s absolutely no way it will arrive in time for their event. I tell them to keep the first “wrong color” one and promise to make a new one. I have to walk to the store at 9 AM. Which means I first have to walk to the post office. Crap. This sucks.
On top of that it is raining. But I have no other choice but to walk in the rain as I have no car.
I eat a little cereal for breakfast. A very little.
I walk to the post office. Then walk to the store. Then I stop into my work on the way home to visit with G. He will make me feel better. He always does.
In the time I am there he offers me:
An umbrella (I have one, it sucks, but I have one)
A ride to the post office when he gets off (which isn’t until 4:30, so that cuts a bit too close to 5)
Half of his lunch (I ate breakfast…HE DIDN’T…he needs to eat, so I refuse it)
He’s so very sweet.
I give him a big hug and walk home. I re-make the item and have to walk it ALL THE WAY back to the far post office because the power is still out at the close one.
Somewhere in between I eat a sandwich with blackberry preserves and peanut butter.
I got a LOT of walking in today. A lot.
I get home and make a SPECTACULAR dinner:
Vegetarian Shepard’s Pie
Fresh Corn cut off the cob
Green Pepper, diced
Mushrooms, roughly sliced
Fresh chopped Sage
Fresh chopped Thyme
Cream Cheese (divided)
S&P to taste
I first sauteed the veggies in olive oil and a little butter. Then added the milk, tomato paste, sage, thyme, Worcestershire Sauce and let the corn soak some of that in a little while. Then added the cream cheese and a little more milk and the flour. I boiled a potato while doing all of this (that I had de-skinned and cubed), mashed it and added butter, cream cheese, a little milk, salt and pepper, put the veggie mixture into a baking pan and topped it with the mashed potato. I let that bake at 350 for about 35 minutes. Until the potatoes were starting to get a little golden.
DEFUCKINGLICIOUS! I made this up with what I had entirely on the spot. I did my best to write down/remember what was in it. WOW! Outstanding!!!
Too long of a day. My legs actually hurt from so much walking. I don’t really mind, but normally they can take quite a beating. I am tired.
Exercise: You don’t even know. Like a 10 mile walk. It was crazy.
