taste / texture is super - the problem was the physical shaping/handling.

original hydration was 65% - my notes suggest 55% next time....

I want to make banana bread and cookies today but need to do shoveling. It's supposed to snow all week, which is unusual for us. We'll see.

Not much going on today. I was watching the news this morning, and Jax (cat) was playing in his favorite chair, which has a hanging furry ball on a stretchy string from the side. Both cats have played with the ball most every day, and there has never been a problem.

All of a sudden, Jax lets out these weird sounding, distressed meows, never heard them before, and is hunched down in the chair. I think the little sucker is having a heart attack. I checked it out, and his paw was wrapped up in the string from the ball, and he couldn't get it out.

I set him down on the floor and tried to unwrap the string. Setting him on the floor must have tightened the string, and the little sucker BIT ME , not horrible but it drew blood. I had to get the scissors to cut the ball off and untangle his paw. Geez Louise!

On a good note, it's pretty outside today and temps should get into the 70's. I'm so ready for spring.

????? How did I get here. ?????
many, many of my dinners involve tipping wait-persons, & if i'm too 'meh' to get dinner, i'll make my food here; that may mean a seasoning packet & cheap oodles-of-noodles, msg, & grilled cheeses, w/ a cold can of soup-- slumps happen; when u make that PB straight via a plastic utensil, well-- better than illicit items-- we'll begin to make actual dinners again!! give urself a few--

Working on my laundry.
The building managers had all new washers and dryers installed down in the laundry room.
Really nice digital Samsungs.

Doing a system recovery on my laptop.
My eldest granddaughter had it for months using it for home school.
I had to remove so much stuff she put on it.
Like apps for this and that.
What a mess!
It's going to take hours to get it back to the way it was.
Grrr lol

I've been busy with life - the mrs got a shoulder replacement two weeks ago so I do home care and chief cook and bottle washer. Last week I had some oral surgery and can only eat soft food - getting tired of mac and cheese and pizza. I can only chew on left side of the most. tonight will be the 3rd day of tuna and egg salad sandwiches and the hard boiled eggs will be gone. The 30th stitches are out and will have a burger. watching lots of movies and caught up on GOT and starting them over - can't shoot the big rifles or shotguns till jaw heals.

My car failed emissions and have a land rover appointment - more $$$$.

That's it in a nutshell.

Hope all heals soon. DW had her arm muscle reattached to the shoulder, and a bone spur removed. She developed RSD in the arm and hand. Just copy same as the right arm / hand, she had done in 2005.
We will be praying for you and DW.
Take it slow and easy!
