A Few Things I’m Looking Forward To…

A Few Things I’m Looking Forward To…

 

-Cooking with my cast-iron cauldron (I’ve had it for a year, haven’t tried it once)

-Playing around with my apple butter recipe (Though it always turns out too sweet)

-Breaking out the giant tubs of Halloween decor (I prefer being vomited in Halloween)

-Sharing a few Halloween poems that I’m writing (Anything to evoke the season) 

-Being honest with my debt issues, no longer being in denial about my problems (Denial can be really tricky for me to navigate most times). 

-Starting to write my stories again (even if it’s crap, just write)

-Spending time with old friends (I hate realizing that some people I might see once a year)

-Getting lost in any book (seriously, ANY book)

-Living life by my own definitions (trying incredible hard not to lose my authentic self…a true struggle for me)

Korean Pear Confusion

Are Korean pears supposed to be this crunchy?

I’m not really sure–they taste sweet and fruity but so, so crunchy.

Like baby apple crunchy or fresh-picked melon.

The flavor is sweet and light (though I’m not getting an intense pear flavor) with a water chestnut-like texture.

Why??

I’ve had these for a few weeks, maybe I messed up?

I’m usually a big fan of fruit but texture really is my thang. I can’t handle weird texture above all else.

Drinking Away Monday

Yeah, I’m having a hard case of the “Mondays” tonight. Today wasn’t too bad of day, though I’m a bit envious of my coworkers who have a bit of vacation left. Everyone always seems to harbor way more vacation time then I do–all I can do is let it go and drink about it.

Forget them.

I never overdo it with alcohol, so me “drinking about it” is a couple of sips before passing out in last year’s Christmas pajamas.

I am currently enjoying Jim Bean’s Apple Bourbon Whiskey. This whiskey finishes with a nice burn and a slight aftertaste of apple which you can notice. I love the fruity notes at the end and can’t recommend it enough to whiskey/apple fans.

I love those late nights when the evening can just extend forever (or give the illusion of at least). I ran several errands this evening but still got to indulge in a bit of retail therapy and grocery shopping. I made the mistake of going to Goodwill and actually bought several bags of goods that I probably shouldn’t have.

Goodwill is my kryptonite because I have such a curious mind and find everything interest. Stop it mind, just stop it. I can just buy bags and bags of what others would call “junk” because I find it intriguing.

I have a confession to make: I bought a Rolodex. Yeah, a Rolodex *bows head in shame* even the cashier commented on how archaic it is but I really wanted it and it was only a buck! That’s just a glimpse of my mindset and I’m sure you can easily see why I get in trouble at a place that has random, inexpensive goods. And I brought home all of my “treasures” and hid them from sight so the bf doesn’t notice them.

The whiskey is making me real honest tonight. Though my confessions are pretty nerdy and lame like me hahaha.
