Chronic pain and comfort food

So, yesterday was not a good day. My butt cheeks still hurt from planting garlic. Who knew that crouching that long was such a workout? The 90km/hr winds (55 m/hr US) tore up the storage tent we had put up exactly 30 hours previously. And it was cold and rainy all bleeding day!

So my hip and head were hurting as well as my butt. LOL, the minions have totally ruined me for the word butt. I can’t even say butt roast anymore without giggling like a 12 yr old.

And my spayed cat is acting like she’s in heat. Murbling and purring, wanting her butt (hee hee, butt) scratched, and offering her tummy for tickles. Do NOT tickle the tummy, it’s a trap!

Thank gods for my instant pot!  I tossed in frozen chicken, some frozen veggies and broth and an envelope of GF gravy mix.  Instant (well (40 min total) chicken stew.  Comfort food for a blustery day. I added GF dumplings but they didn’t work. They were more like spaetzle than dumplings. I shall try again! I shall not be denied my chicken and dumplings!  It was probably my fault, I didn’t time them. And science is much more important when everything is GF.

In the meantime, I’m still trying to get my store up and running. Does it work yet? Who knows? I can’t tell from this end anymore.  Between my awesome little Cannabis oil capsules that look like vitamin D, and the headache from the low-pressure system….

And tomorrow is Nano!!!!!  I need some encouraging words.
