I got tired

Having ALL the grass fed beef you want available to you became a kind of burden. I got tired of it.  I didn’t know what to do with it. I took a break. I started eating some weird foods the past few days. Nothing but roasted Brussel sprouts for dinner one night, smoked herring on wasa crackers for lunch. Last night, I ate peanut butter and celery for dinner. Hello?!?

So, I started surfing and pulling out cookbooks and came up with cheesesteak casserole. Done Berks County style. I had to make two batches because Texas likes mushrooms in his cheesesteak. I draw the line at bell peppers. That is not how we roll!

All the yumminess of a childhood cheesesteak memory without the carbs of the bread. Comfort food tweaked and twisted to fit a different way of eating.

I’m tired of knitting on the sweater. While I love the fabric that Silky Wool makes, there is only so long I can knit with it. Does anyone else find that it dries your hands out? My fingers were hurting where it slides across them and I was using more lotion in one night than I probably use in a whole month.

I’m back to the mystery socks in the hopes that I can catch up before the final clue tomorrow.  Besides the peer pressure to work on the Sweater of Dryness ™, I had gotten tired of the heels. I alway mess up in some way, shape or form in picking up stitches for them. I suppose the cure for that is to knit more socks like that. However, I tried them on and they are a little loose around the heel. I might be a tried and true short row heel girl.

Other things that are making me tired:

  • The plague that ended just in time for allergies to take over.
  • Jiu Bitsy™. In a good way. I’m sleeping much better too.
  • Roller coaster weather. Ice and maybe a high of 32 today, 60’s tomorrow and 70’s by the weekend.
  • Meditation. How do y’all do it without falling asleep?

Happy Tuesday y’all!

  1. So is there a recipe for the Cheesesteak casserole or is it something you threw together? Cooks of the world want to know!
    Olympic knitting is wearing me down too. I’m gradually chipping away at all the rows on the body but it seems like it is taking FOREVER!!
    Happy Tuesday to you!!

  2. Mmmmm, that looks good.

    Yay for better sleeping! We are getting a replacement treadmill this weekend, so I’m looking forward to getting in my walking/listening daily. I’ll work up to the Jui-bitsy stuff.

    Hard to fall asleep if you hit the floor. But seriously….if I’m seating and listening to a guided meditation, I’m pretty good. (or I used to be) On the bed, all bets are off as I get way too relaxed. Probably not a bad thing but missing the point, I think.

    I love the yarn but I’ve only swatched with it—not much of a test.

  3. I read that as “medication” and wondered the same thing.

    Respectable people do NOT eat bell peppers.

    There’s a reason I don’t knit with SilkyWool unless someone horrible is holding a gun to my head. Hello!

  4. That sounds like a super-yummy casserole.

    I did not know that about Silky Wool. Now I can let go of my feelings of jealousy for never having owned or knit with it.

    Hooray for the good things making you tired in good ways, and boo for the bad. Have you been meditating long? I always thought the falling asleep bit happened to everyone at first. xoxo
