No sitting down- but no steps???February 9 2020

in #actifit9 months ago

Okay. I was sitting down to eat. But the rest of the time I was on my feet from 6 am.

Started with letting the dogs out. Then put a chicken in the pressure cooker. Cooked a chili with red kidney beans I had cooked last night.

Got breakfast ready for the wool crew that was due to arrive at 9 am. It was raining in San Diego today and I should have cancelled since the wool is best done outside.

Well, as it turned out, everyone showed up. All good. All in all I had 10 visitors today.

After the chicken was done, I pulled it out, set some of the broth aside, and cooked a Chilacayote squash in some broth. That done, made bone broth from the chicken bones - 4 hours in the pressure cooker. Beats 48 hours on the stove.

We sampled the Kraut and it was already good. Pulled some and let the rest ferment.

Made chillers greens and chick pea curry for lunch, prepped apples for drying, steem- super tired and in bed.

Wish me luck at my tax appointment tomorrow

I love that picture! Looks like you are having a great time. And the food looks wonderful! Have a good week! :)

We did have a great time. It is fun to have friends over even though it can get a bit crazy. But people flowed in and out which usually is not a big deal because everything happens outside. Not yesterday. Californians melt in the rain :) And I have a small house... All good.

I could tell he was enjoying the moment. Well done! Smiles extend the good life.

It was fun :)

Just reading your work day makes me tired! Good luck with the tax guy!

Thank you so much. Usually, my days are like that - lots going on. That is why I am beyond tired when the evening rolls around...
