I needed a down day.
I had a half down day yesterday, too. I met with my literary group, going on since 1997 now. We are reading Gerard Manley Hopkins. If anyone is interesting, drop me a line and I will read some. He is REALLY hard, and rewarding.
At the Cathedral of St. Paul in St. Paul, there is a perfect copy of the … you know what it is.
I light candles, by the way.
Back home I found tulips in abundance and filled three more vases.
Garlic, onion, white wine. Deglazed with white wine and sambucca, reduced, and whipped with a new version of Crème fraiche, this Philly “cooking cream” product. Seen it? Not quite Crème fraiche… but it worked. Chardonnay. Dessert? No dessert. I don’t have much of a sweet tooth.
I will now catch up on cable news, having pity on my brain I used my blessed DVR to cut out commercials and fluff, of which there is a lot, have a tall glass of something… bourbon? scotch? … in a heavy glass, and a cigar, and go to bed early.
BTW… I saw There Be Dragons today. Have you?
