With a side of asparagus:
And the peas are up!
I am feeling seriously hung over, and even though that beautiful blue sky and sunshine are beckoning, I can hardly get out of my own shadow this morning. Last night was fun, but oh-so-exhausting, and I didn't get home until well after midnight, what with driving home in rain and fog and in an almost stuporous state. I think I did a reasonably good job, and though it was far from perfect, I can't imagine many other people doing an appreciably better job. It was challenging -- that's an understatement. And it was seriously HOT up in that balcony. Towards the end of the second act, I felt woozy and so did my steno machine. I was fighting it to get it to register the O key last night. As I said to someone else who was working there last night, this Mira steno machine is the most expensive PIECE OF CRAP I have ever owned. I feel eminently justified saying this now that I have just come back from a conference where I rubbed elbows with some of the elite, all of whom had the same opinion. I can't wait 'til the pieced-together old faithful one will work with my computer (it's the connection that is the problem with that one, I think/hope, and I'm waiting for the proper connecting device to arrive). There was a point in time when I was getting pure gobbledegook. I stopped writing for a bit. It's as if the machine overheated or something(?). Anyway, then I picked up again, and there were fewer errors. I know *I* was certainly overheated, as were the other two people working up there.
Anyway, super-fresh asparagus for brunch! That's certainly got to improve my mood and energy. And hopefully I can get out there and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine.
Have a nice Saturday, people!
