Having a Good Time--Wish I Were Here!

Tabs and Mist today at the music festival. They played very well. Tabs came home with a second place certificate and Mist placed third. The adjudicator gave great feedback tips to improve their playing.

The above title perfectly expresses the Buddhist philosophy to remember to live in the moment.

I have learned a few new things lately. Some may be too controversial to post on this blog. But I will try posting a few:
-Humans need a daily nap. Those who don't, have to be drugged to remain awake in the late afternoon. If you're not napping, you're on drugs: caffeine and perhaps something even stronger. If you're not napping or on drugs then you wake at noon and tuck yourself in by ten.
-There are yes things and no things you can do in any relationship. The sooner you learn and accept what you can and cannot do with the person--the happier you will be. Example: Peter and I cannot chit-chat--it always leads to bad karma between us. Casual chit-chat is a NO for us. Yet, we are good at being active together, like sports. So sports together are a YES.
I best end the list here as the rest are tres controversial...
Now as promised my two week supper menu:
*note I am allergic to sea food so none is represented. Also, I don't eat red meat except on rare occasions, so none represented.
WEEK I
Monday:curried chicken vegetable curry skillet-casserole with quinoa and chick peas.
Tuesday: Thai peanut chicken with carrot and red pepper, cilantro on brown rice vermicelli.
Wednesday: Veggie stir fry on brown rice with eadame beans and every colour of veg( I often add purple cabbage).
Thursday: chicken fingers, raw veggies and homemade dip (light sour cream/light mayo base).
Friday: Spaghetti with ground turkey on whole wheat pasta and a Hawaiian green salad with avocado and mango and organic dressing.
WEEK II
Monday:curried chicken veggies curry skillet casserole with quinoa and lentils.
Tuesday: Light(made with evaporate milk instead of cream) Indian butter chicken (with spinach) on brown basmati rice.
Wednesday: Veggie and eadame bean stir fry on brown basmati. (same as previous week).
Thursday: Chicken fingers, sweet potato fries and steamed broccoli.
Friday: homemade pizza (cheese) with Hawaiian greens (same as previous week).
And that is my menu for the year.
Ripped, bruised or fractured my right shin in Vancouver. Don't know how. I have a vague recollection of banging it but ignoring the pain. It is an odd injury. I cannot put pressure on that shin if I have a bent knee or ankle. A straight leg doesn't hurt much but trying to stand up from a squat position is agony.
Beautiful, warm, sunny days this week--near 30 oC tomorrow!
