Huffery and Puffery

Posted on

101914_1729_Somedays1.jpgShabbat dawns cool and crisp at 40° now that one band of December rains have passed. But another is tracking in tomorrow Praise music plays on the puck, and a joyful budgie greets the day with me. The new kitchen island is installed and we are getting used to a big chunk of cabinetry sitting in the middle of a once vast sea of linoleum. But I am the sort that needs four pots, two skillets and seven bowls to fry an egg, and the added counter top will be a welcome addition.

Not much on the newsfeeds.  Mostly hyperventilating of impeachment proceedings and righteous huffery and puffery on the shutdown.  I don’t care enough to carefully read what the details are.  I am making a concerted effort to stay below the governments radar, much the same way common people ages ago treated a tyrannical King.  Hide the harvest and the women and say nothing.

I am excited about getting a sous vide heater for slow cooking, along with a induction cook top for frying.  I can hardly wait to try them out.  But this morning I will go about brunch preparations the old way.  Thaw a couple of cups of frozen hash-browns, fry ‘em up with some onions, fry up some turkey sausage, and fry up a couple of runny eggs.

But I have a little time to sit and write, and let the inspirational music suffuse my soul.

Good morning!

    I don’t even bother with all that huffery and puffery for the most part. I am just trying to live my life and the government can do their thing and keep destroying the country because that is what they are best at. I wish they would all just fly off to Alcatraz or some deserted island for a permanent vacation. And life would go on for us little people quite well without them. 😊

      I would even let them take a billion apiece if they would stay in the Bahama’s permanently …
